99% People Can’t See This Video For More Than 25 Seconds Facebook Scam
By on June 25th, 2011

Just as I was writing about the new Marika Fruscio Facebook Scam I came across another scam that is rapidly spreading on with the text “99% of people can’t watch this video more than 25 seconds!!! I dare you to watch more than 25 seconds from this video!”.

Facebook Can't Watch Video Scam

The message in this Facebook Scam is accompanied with a NSFW image which is more than enough to entice users to click on it. Clicking on the video link could lead you to several different websites where they display a video supposedly from like the screenshot below.

It then asks users to click the “Jaa” button twice to watch the video to confirm that you are 18 years of age. However, clicking on the button will open a share page on Facebook and then add a link to your wall. This link could be the 99% can’t watch this video link or the Marika Fruscio Live Television scam. Please don’t click on those links.

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.

    Keith- Awhile back a friend posted the “99% of people can’t watch…” video. I made the mistake of clicking on it but Norton informed me the website was malicious so I did not proceed further.Recently I was creating a FB list and noticed the malicious video post is amongst the items presented to me for adding to a FB list.I can’t figure out how to locate and delete it on FB. Can you help me with this? Its presence concerns me. Thanks. -Gary
