Get Free 2000 Facebook Credits totally FREE Facebook Scam

It’s a lovely Sunday out here in the real world, but the online world is full of shenanigans. While drooling over what my friends are doing on Facebook, I came across something which I love to do, that something is nothing but my love for advising people about technology.

Earlier today, the self proclaimed hackers LulzSec decided to hang their boots (Read: Editorial: LulzSec, AntiSec and Why the Internet is a Sadder Place Now). However, scammers are still far off from doing that.

A new Facebook Scam is underway where an app is promising that you can get 2000 Facebook Credits for free (remember the Free Cityville coins Scam?). Facebook Credits are virtual currency on Facebook which can be used to buy virtual goods on Facebook for games like Farmville and more. These credits are not free and can be acquired by paying for them.

Facebook Credits

Facebook Credits can be purchased by visiting your Account tab and then selecting the Payments tab. You can buy 50 credits for $5 and so on. Now a new scam is doing the rounds of Facebook where the app says that they will give you 2000 Facebook Credits for free. If you were to purchase 2000 credits on Facebook, you would have to pay $200. Now the offer from the scammer is definitely pretty enticing considering that you would be saving $200 upfront.

Pretty neat right? Well no, the offer is a big scam. After all, giving $200 to each of Facebook’s 700 million users would cost a whooping $14 billion. The people claim that they would do it only for the first 1000 visitors, but what the heck, I want my pie. and I know more than 1000 users want it too.

Now who in their sane mind would want to spill out that kind of money for free? A lunatic right? Well you are wrong, it is a Facebook scammer.

Facebook Credits Scam

If you do fall for the scam and click on the link, you might see a page similar to the screenshot above. The website in question is not hosted on Facebook itself, but it disguises itself to look like that. The website asks you to perform few steps in order to get 2000 free credits. One of the task involves sharing the page in question with a message like;

Get your FREE 2000 FACEBOOK CREDITS! NO SCAM NO surveys NO  waste of time no task its totally FREE this promo is available for the  first 1000 persons only… CHECK IT OUT ENJOY..i got mine and it works  get yours here [site redacted]

Additionally, you will have to like the site. While you are performing the above steps, the site pretends to be checking the status of your actions. Well, it will keep doing that no matter what you do. Finally, after you have shared the scam with your friends (and probably managed to entice them too) you can click on the button to claim your "FREE 2000 Facebook Credits".

Facebook Credits Scam Content Locked

When you click that button shouldn’t you be getting your so called FREE 2000 Facebook Credits? Well, you should, but you are redirected to a site which will tell you that the content is locked and "you are just one step away from unlocking the content of the site by performing another action". Wait, didn’t you already do that? Well, there you go. Now you have to either customize your Facebook profile or figure out "How Smart Are You Really?" Wait, isn’t this question ironic?

Once you perform the steps to cross the final hurdle, all you are left is with NOTHING. The spammer on the other hand just managed to make a few bucks by fooling you into taking a survey or performing a task? Phew, all in a day’s work.

As I have repeated numerous times in the past, please do not get fooled by these freebies. They will waste your time and make money for those spammers who will then continue to devise new tactics to continue fooling you.

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. In addition to that, don’t forget to check out our article about Avoiding Facebook Lifejacking and Clickjacking scams.

MyPageKeeper Promises to Protect You from Facebook Scams

Facebook scams are beginning to become a real nuisance. Most of them don’t do much real damage, other than causing some embarrassment, but that doesn’t mean that they aren’t annoying. Most scams simply blast the same message that fooled you to all your friends, which helps them in going viral. Some of them might also ask you to fill surveys that profit the scammer. However, only a very few try to distribute malware or spread phishing campaigns.

What makes these scams so effective is the fact that they are fairly hard to spot. Most people implicitly trust anything posted on their wall by their friends. Moreover, it is often hard for people to resist clicking on links promising leaked videos of Bin Laden’s death or the last words of a recently dead celebrity. Facebook scams prey on people’s gullibility and curiosity to get the better of them.

A new Facebook app called MyPageKeeper promises to protect you from Facebook scams. It does so by monitoring your news feed, wall posts, and installed apps. It doesn’t say exactly how it detects a piece of content as spam, but it’s most likely that MyPageKeeper is simply database driven.

MyPageKeeper

Two Ph.D. students in computer science at the Bourns College of Engineering teamed up with StopTheHacker, a web protection service founded in 2009 by Anirban Banerjee, who received his Ph.D. in 2008 from UC Riverside, and Michalis Faloutsos, a professor of computer science and engineering at the university, to create MyPageKeeper.

“Facebook is the new web,said Rahman. It provides a fertile ground to spread malware, since users trust links and posts that are seemingly from their friends. Hackers have realized this, and they have started using it to distribute malware and conduct identity theft.

MyPageKeeper is free to use, and getting started is as simple as installing the Facebook application. It’s designed to work automatically, and proactively. Once you enable it, you don’t need to tinker with it further. However, if you like to tinker with things, then there are a few options that you can tweak. You can specify how aggressive you want MyPageKeeper to be. Obviously, being more aggressive runs the risk of generating more false positives. You can also change how you want the app to notify you about malicious content spotted in your profile.

MyPageKeeper-Settings

Faloutsos, who has studied web security for 15 years, believes web security is following the same trajectory as desktop security. Ten years back, people weren’t serious about desktop security, but now almost everyone has an antimalware product installed on their system. Today, most people don’t realize the importance of staying cautious on the web, but in the coming years, Faloutsos believes that everyone will realize the importance of web security. People are educated about e-mail spam,says Faloutsos. But, now there is an implicit trust, almost validation, when someone sees a post from a friend on Facebook.

You can install this Facebook application from MyPageKeeper.org.
