Facebook problem with friend requests

Facebook frustration. I am extremely new to Facebook, and got a friend request notification by email. However I see no such person in my Facebook account.

This is the email I got:
Steve added you as a friend on Facebook. We need you to confirm that you are, in fact, friends with Steve.
To confirm this friend request, follow the link below:
The Facebook Team
Phish URLs are obvious, and this is not one. I went to the link, and it just redirects to http://www.facebook.com/home.php? There's no friend activity listed.
Their help pages, under: "I got an email saying I have a pending friend request, but I don't see one." have the unhelpful answer "Don't let this friendship opportunity slip away! Just send the other person a friend request from your account. Alternatively, you could ask them to request you as a friend again." What a crock... why is it my job to find them when they just notified me?
And yes it may be a spammer, and in the grand scheme of things, this is a non-issue, but it does concern me if I have a Facebook profile and Facebook is broken.
