Facebook Scam in Spanish means “Facebook estafa“. A new Facebook video scam is underway that claims to show a video of a lady stripping down completely after getting drunk. This scam is spreading in Spanish language with the following title – Mira esta loca la que lia borracha en el Bora Bora de Ibiza !
The translation of the above is – Watch this crazy drunk that lia in Bora Bora in Ibiza!
It contains a message that states – Alucinar con este video, la tia lleva un pedo la lia y acaba totalmente en pelotas, y el resto alucina …which Google translates this into English as – Blown away by this video, the aunt brings a fart and ends the Eleventh completely naked, freaks and the rest …
Although the scam is different in language, clicking on the scam will lead you the same old “Jaa” page. In order to watch the video, you are asked to confirm that you are over 18 years of age. However, clicking the “Jaa” button will click-jack and like-jack your Facebook account by posting the scam on your Facebook wall and spamming all your friends.
After you have clicked on “Jaa”, you will be redirected to another page where you will be asked to enter your phone number to download the video. Well, at this point you should realize that it is a scam and it’s not worth clicking on it. Facebook never asks for your phone number or requires you to perform tasks like completing surveys in order to watch a video.
If you come across this scam message, it is recommended that you do not click on it, and delete it from your news feed. Avoiding such scams is not easy on Facebook, but you can always follow caution.
