The messages is spreading virally and I had to delete around 9 messages from my wall recently. The scam looks to be spreading virally. As always do not click on this link and delete it from your wall if you see it.

P.S. I visited the site in question to see what it had to offer, but it is just a parked page, so nothing to write home about here. Safe Facebooking.

Facebook 360 Rotate Effect Scam

Update: Looks like this scam is spreading differently now. Users are now writing on other people’s walls with the text "Checkout 360 rotate effect on images. MUST SEE http://revolvingimages.info/fb/"

Update 2: This problems seems to be user-initiated where they are enticed to copy and paste some JavaScript into their browser address bar, please do not copy paste any unknown JavaScript in the address bar as it can spread the scam more.
