Yet another scam related to Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez has been found spreading on the social networking site, Facebook. The earlier scams we reported were “Selena Gomez Caught On (LEAKED Tape) and the Justin Bieber” and “Selena Gomez New Kissing Video Leaked!!!.”
The new scam titled – “Omg. There was a hidden camera in Selena & Justin’s bedroom” is spreading across the social network and has already attracted thousands of users to click on the scam link.
Clicking on the scam message will take you to a bogus page where a fake video player will be displayed. Clicking on the play button will open up a pop-up message box asking you to complete online surveys before you can watch the video. This in turn will click-jack and like-jack you Facebook account by automatically posting the same scam message on your Facebook Timeline.
Note: The scam uses multiple domains. You may see variations in the landing pages, but they are all the same.
The other version of the scam has the title – “Oops!!! There was a hidden camera in Selena & bieber’s bedroom.”
