In a unfortunate and tragic incident, "JackAss" star Ryan Dunn was killed in a car accident. Though this incident is tragic, spammers are trying to lure people on Facebook by posting a new scam which is saying that it has "Ryan Dunn’s LAST WORDS – EXCLUSIVE!!" video. It also adds a warning saying that the video is for mature audiences only.
Spammers show no remorse for anyone, and they have used deaths of popular celebrities like Michael Jackson among others to scam unsuspecting people who would click on links out of curiosity or because of their love for an artist. This is pathetic behavior at best.
We have uncovered several such Facebook Scams in the past, which include sick videos of Miley Cyrus, showing what Justin Bieber did to a girl, OMG Look What This Kid Did To His School, Osama Bin Laden Dead Videos and Osama Bin Wikileaks Video among others.
The current Ryan Dunn’s video scam is a typical Facebook scam which asks users to complete surveys and does not show any video at all. They then post the offending message to the user’s wall and spread it to their friend. Please DO NOT click on those links.
