OMG This is what happened to his Ex Girlfriend!!! Video Spam Spreading
By on August 2nd, 2011

A new Facebook Scam is spreading on and has been spreading for the past few days. The scam is about a video and has the text "[Video] OMG This is what happened to his Ex Girlfriend!!!". The scam also occurred earlier and has spread under several different messages.

OMG Girlfriend Video Scam

The scam is spreading with messages like these among others:

[Video] OMG This is what happened to his Ex GirlFriend!!!

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!

Once again, the scam uses the same methods as earlier Facebook video scams and is a survey related scam. When you click on the links, you will be taken to a website which will ask you to accept the term and complete a survey before you can watch the video. While you complete the survey, a similar message will also be posted on your wall.

It is recommended that you DO NOT click on such links or scam messages on Facebook. If you come across this scam message, please delete/remove the scam from your Facebook news feed immediately. Alternately, you can report the scam to Facebook Security.
