I've received a few emails from Facebook telling me I have friend requests. I don't have a personal FB account, only my company page and my admin FB account. Can a company page receive friend requests, or are these requests being made to my admin account? If it's the latter, are the requests likely spam since it's only an admin account and it has never posted anything?

Pages in Facebook hasn't "send friend request" link. so no one can add you through your company page but as you said you have admin fb account then you can get friend request through this.
Thanks.

I've received a number of friend requests supposedly from FB. When I go to FB, no such request exists. Most likely the e-mail is spam or a Trojan.

facebook makes it easy for people to import their contact lists from various services and then spam the entire list with friend requests.
the request in this case is going to an email account as opposed to a facebook account.

i can sometimes tell this is happening when the facebook email is sent to an email account that is different from what i am registered with on facebook.
