You Will Hate Nicki Minaj After Watching This Video Here – Facebook Scam
By on July 10th, 2012

Yet again the Nicki Minaj scam on Facebook has started to appear after it was reported to be spreading on the social networking site back in May. However, this time the scam is spreading with a picture along with a link that leads to a bogus web page.

The scam is spreading with the following message and picture:

You Will Hate Nicki Minaj - Facebook Scam

You Will HATE Nicki Minaj After Watching This Video Here —> [link]

This is the third time that scammers are spreading hoax messages and sex tape related to Nicki Minaj. Earlier they had targeted the same celebrity in the scam “Nicki Minaj Sex Tape – Exclusive!!!” and “Nicki Minaj Gets Caught on Tape (LEAKED Tape),” and are now doing it again with another fake message.

Clicking the link provided in the message will automatically download a malware program on your PC. Not just that, this will also lead to Facebook click-jack and like-jack in which your Facebook account will automatically “like” and “share” the same message with your friends.

It is highly 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.

As a precautionary measure, always check which applications you use and remove unwanted or suspicious ones. If you aren’t sure how to do it, you can always check our guide on removing apps from Facebook.
