OMG Check Out This, Jumping Crab Video Facebook Scam
By on March 3rd, 2012

A new video scam called "OMG Check Out This Jumping Crab", similar to the check out my home video scam is spreading on . The scam is dangerous because it downloads a virus/malware to your computer.

The Facebook scam is spreading with the following message:

OMG! CHECK OUT THIS? Jumping Crab learn more about jumpingbaby

Of late, I have seen this scam spread with several different messages. However, it looks like the people behind the scam are similar because they are targeting people and asking them to install a "DivX Plugin" and a " premium plugin". DO NOT Install anything because it is a malware/virus.
