Fake Facebook Security pages are quite a common sight, and there’s a “Your page will be disabled unless…” scam in circulation at the moment on random Facebook comment sections which you should steer clear of.
The scam begins with a message like this, courtesy of Twitter user Alukeonlife:

Upgrade your payment
Should the victim enter their information and hit the button, they’ll be forwarded on to the real Facebook Security Facebook page. There’s also a “Confirm Paypal” button which leads to a phish for that service, too:
