Looks like I am working overnight today with Facebook Scams. I recently posted about three scams today. The first was a girl having a spider living under her skin video followed by the Oslo bombings video scam and the Ex Girlfriend being violated Facebook Scam. Now I have come across a new scam where a sexy mom is making thousands of dollars working from home.
The new scam is going with the text saying "This is so real.. OMG This Sexy Mom Making Thousands of dollar only working from home. Now you can also make lot of money like her".
However, this mom is neither sexy, nor does she make thousands of dollars. The people who make the thousands of dollars are the scammers who basically entice you to click on these links and spread them across to your unsuspecting friends.
Seriously, if it was so easy to make money, why would someone share it with you? Also why would a lingerie clad mom show her assets to you when she was making thousands of dollars anyway?
I am really fed-up of these scams on Facebook, but there is no stopping them. They will continue to happen and spread throughout the system. After all, not all of the 750 million users on Facebook are good at spotting it, or are they?
It is 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.
