Right after I published a post on how one canon how one can avoid Facebook scams, I noticed a new scam message on my Facebook news feed. The scam titled – “OMG!!

The scam has occurred earlier  and has spread under several different messages.

The scam is spreading with messages like these among others:

  • She is due to go to the hospital after this, could not walk properly for days.
  • [Video] OMG! See what happened to his Ex Girlfriend!
  • LOL. She could not walk straight for days!

Clicking on the video link will open a page in a new tab in your browser where you will be asked to verify that you are over 13 years of age.  As you can see from the screenshot, there are two options – “Jaa” and “Peruuta” (Finnish words) which in  English  mean “Share” and “Cancel” respectively.

Clicking on any of these buttons  will like-jack your Facebook account and the message will be posted on your Facebook wall stating that you likethe video causing your friends to also fall for this trap.
