No, I Do Not Have a Plethora of Facebook Notifications Waiting

Received 21+ bogus spam emails in last 5 days or so claiming that I have Facebook Notifications pending.

Each appear authentic in style (right down to the table, color, and font formating) and appear to be coming from Facebook, complete with the subject line "You have notifications pending"

However, they are clearly another scam (as confirmed by simply logging into Facebook directly without trying to go through these emails) and are coming via very different open mail relays with links actually pointing towards different equally suspicious destinations pitching International Prescription drugs.
