OMG I Just Hate Rihanna After Watching This Video – Facebook Scam
By on May 16th, 2012

Updates below..

A new Facebook scam is brewing up similar to an earlier scam where fake messages were spread by scammers for Miley Cyrus in the “I Just Hate Miley Cyrus After Watching This Video Facebook Scam“. This is not the first scam featuring popular celebrities and also not the first one featuring Rihanna.

OMG Rihanna Video Facebook Scam

In November 2011, a similar scam had spread targeting Rihanna where fake messages were spread saying You Will Hate Rihanna After Watching This Video!. The newer scam is similar and contains a NSFW video accompanied with the message:

OMG I Just Hate RIHANNA After Watching This Video

you will lose all your respect for RIHANNA after watching this

The video in question takes you to a Blogspot page which looks very similar to and will ask you to install a DivX plugin which is a virus on your computer to view the video and will also share the same status automatically with your friends on Facbeook.

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.
