The current scam is similar to earlier survey scams, where users are asked to complete a survey before they can watch the video in question. However, after completing the survey no video is shown and instead the user’s wall page is updated with a similar message that they had originally clicked on thus further spreading the scam.

The new scam is going around with messages like:

OMg,, Towel Pilling Prank Sets this poor girl totally undressed scam.

It is totally shocking as well as somewhat humorous

WARNING: Amy Winehouse Death Video Scam Spreading on Facebook

As with the past Facebook Scams , the scammers on are all out to exploit situations to make money and scam people. Quite recently, they took advantage of the Oslo bombings and spread a Fake Oslo Bombing Video Scam. Earlier they had exploited Ryan Dunn’s death and spread a scam about Ryan Dunn’s LAST WORDS EXCLUSIVE Video.

RIP Amy Winehouse

Today, another tragic incident happened with singer Amy Winehouse dying under unknown circumstances. However, death or bombings do not deter these scammers from exploiting people and they have started to spread a new scam on Facebook related to Amy Whitehouse death.

The scam is spreading under multiple guises including;

  • Leaked Video!! Amy Winehouse on Crack hours before death. Amy Winehouse getting high on crack just hours before she died
  • Amy Winehouse Death film Leaked Attention: Real Video. Leaked Video of Miss Amy Winehouse Death – Watch Now!

This is definitely pathetic, however, with over 750 million Facebook users it is a very good opportunity for these scammers to exploit users and make money. I am really fed-up of the lack of management by Facebook because they can easily put in solutions which can stop such things. Earlier last year, managed to put a perfect solution for tackling and stopping scams and spam from spreading by introducing their own short URLs t.co.

Using that facility, they could easily block and control spam URLs and stop users from visiting affected sites. Sadly, the amount of scams spreading on Facebook suggests that Facebook is not doing anything about it.

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.

OMG This Sexy Mom Making Thousands of Dollar Working From Home – Facebook Scam

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.

Sexy Mom Thousand Dollars Facebook Scam

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 , 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.

OMG Ex-Girlfriend Revenge Video Scam Spreading on Facebook

In a new trend, a new scam is spreading on in multiple ways. There are different updates related to the same thing and they are similar in nature. I have been writing about Facebook Scam for a while today. Previously, I wrote about the Oslo Blasts Security Camera Blast and the Girl Has a Spider Living Inside her Skin scam.

Ex Girlfriend Revenge Facebook Scam

Now a new scam is spreading very rapidly on Facebook and it is going around in various flavors as given below;

  • [Video] OMG! Watch as he gets REVENGE on his Ex Girlfriend. LOL. She could not walk properly for days!
  • OMGF! See what she done after his Ex girlfriend posted This on here wall. I dare you to watch more than 44 second of this video!
  • [Video] OMGG! This is what Happened to his Ex Girlfriend. LOL. She could not walk properly for days!

There are many more variants of the same scam and it is definitely not looking good because the rate at which it is spreading is alarming at best. We urge you to not click on this Facebook spam links and avoid clickjacking scams so that others are not affected by this.

The scam uses the same methods as earlier Facebook video scams and entices a user to click on the link and then directs them to a site where they are asked to fill out surveys before they can view a video. In the end, the user fills up the survey and makes money for the scammers and then dupes the users by not showing any video at all.

With more than 750 million users, Facebook is ripe for pickings and the scammers stand to make a decent amount of money even if they fool 1% of the Facebook users.

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.

OSLO Security Camera Blast Facebook Scam

A new Facebook Scam is doing the rounds of Facebook where people are sharing updates saying “[Video] OSLO Security Camera Captures Blast!”. There is no such video available on the internet and the the users are just scamming people and having them click on the links and making money for themselves.

Earlier this month, scammers used the Casey Anthony case and spread scam saying; Leaked Video of Casey Anthony Confessing to Lawyer! Facebook Scam. They also took advantage of Ryan Dunn’s death and spread a scam Ryan Dunn’s LAST WORDS EXCLUSIVE Video.

Additionally, earlier this year, scammers also took advantage of the Osama Bin Laden killing and spread scams like Osama Dead Censored Video Leaked Wikileaks Video, Osama Bin Death Video among other things. The scammers have also not left celebrities like Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus by spreading scams like OMG Can’t Believe Justin Beiber Did This To A Girl and Warning: Miley Cyrus Sick Video.

Overall, the scammers take advantage of people and their curiosity and spread their scams during a big event or disaster. They don’t care about the sufferings, all they care about is to fool you and make money.

The following update is written in all capital letters and has replaced the word "I" with an "L". The video also warns users that it has Mature Content. However, don’t fall for it, since it is nothing but Facebook Spam. The scam is similar to earlier scams like the OMFG: A Girl Raped by Her Teacher in the Classroom and Brother Rapes and Kills His Sister scam.

It tries to generate curiosity in users and then redirects them to a site where they are asked to fill out surveys before they can watch the video. As a user, you might fill out the survey and make money for the scammer, but there will be no video to view in the end.

Get Free Facebook Shoes – Facebook Scam

Recently, there’s a new and unique scam that has been spreading across Facebook. The scam message titled – Get Your Free Facebook Shoes, Register Now with a link to a Google Blog. On clicking the link, you will be taken to the Blogspot page which has a fake Facebook page design. The user is asked to go through a number of steps before he/she can claim their “Facebook Shoes”.

Free Facebook Shoes Facebook Scam

From the Blogspot page, we can see that most “likes” were done by Indian users. This indicates that Indians folks are more attracted to such offers and fall for such tricks very easily.

Free Facebook Shoes Facebook Scam

Why it’s a scam?

First of all, it uses a fake Facebook page design. External pages that use Facebook’s design are always fake.

Secondly, with steps that ask you to “like”, click on ads and “share” – clearly indicates that the scammer wants to spread the message across and make some money out those ads.

Although I knew it was a scam message, I wanted to know where it leads the user after completing the sixth step (Step 6). Without “liking”, clicking on any ads and leaving the entire form blank, I just clicked on the “Submit” button. To my surprise it showed me a alert message stating “Sorry! Step 3 is not completed“. I was wondering, without even having completed the first two steps, why it just jumped to the third step. I checked the source code of the web page and found this!

Free Facebook Shoes Facebook Scam

Even after you “like”, click on ads, “share”, fill out the form completely, you will end up getting the same message no matter what you do. As you can see from the above code, the “Submit” button is hard coded to show the alert message always. So, even if you honestly complete all the steps or retry the steps again, you will end up getting the same alert message.

Unlike conventional scams, this does not click-jack and like-jack your Facebook account, but you will be tempted to do it by yourself. It is recommend that you DO NOT click on the link or share it across your news feed. There is no “Facebook Shoes” as such. You may report this scam to Facebook Security or mark it as spam.

Breaking News – Leaked Video of Casey Anthony Confessing to Lawyer! Facebook Scam

In the most recent case of Casey Anthony, who was accused of killing her 2-year old daughter, Caylee Anthony, and dumping the child’s body in a wooded area near her house, has been sentenced to one year in jail and $1,000 in fine on July 7, 2011. Although Casey Anthony was not guilty of the murder, she was charged for four misdemeanor counts of providing false information to a law enforcement officer.

Breaking News  Leaked Video of Casey Anthony Confessing to Lawyer! Facebook Scam

Since the case received national media attention in the US with media calling it “the biggest rating draw in recent memory”, scammers on Facebook have taken full advantage of it by publishing a scam post on Facebook about Casey Anthony confessions and a link to download the video chat app. If you come across these two scam messages, please ignore them or remove/delete them from your Facebook wall.

The scam message titled – “BREAKING NEWS – Leaked Video of Casey Anthony CONFESSING to Lawyer!” with a link and a description – “Click To See (watch) – She can’t be retried, double jeopordy.. OJ all over again!” is one among the fast-spreading scams on Facebook where the scammer promises to show the leaked video of Casey Anthony confessing to her lawyer.

If you happen to click on the link, you will be redirected to the infamous age verification page with the “Jaa” button. Though it is mentioned that you need to click “Jaa” twice to confirm your age, there is no such button anywhere on the page. However, clicking the “Play Video” button will click-jack and like-jack your Facebook account which will post and “like” the message automatically on your Facebook wall.

Breaking News  Leaked Video of Casey Anthony Confessing to Lawyer! Facebook Scam

The Finnish translation on “Jaa” is to “Share”. That is exactly what the scam message does when you click on the “Play Video” button. This clearly indicates that the scammer’s intention is to share the message with your friends and not to “verify your age”.

After the message is updated on your wall, you will be redirected to a fake YouTube page asking you to complete a set of surveys after which you will be shown the video.

Trying to download the video or any other files may lead to malware attack that could grant access to all your credentials like credit card details and email id to the scammer.

Scammers Take Advantage of Facebook Video Calling Service

Few days back, Facebook integrated the new video chat service (officially called as Video Calling), powered by Skype which was made available to all Facebook users within 24 hours of it’s announcement. Many users on Facebook are still not aware of the new service announced by Facebook, since there was no announcement made on the user’s profile unlike how it was made when Facebook announced its new user interface.

With all the hype and attention that the Facebook video chat has got, scammers have already taken advantage of it by creating a fake video chat application. And users who are not aware of the officially announced video calling service, will definitely fall for this trap.

Facebook Video Calling Scam

The new scam application – Video Calling: Talk to your  friends  face to face, which is a replica of the official Video Calling feature was created in order to enable video chatting with Facebook friends without having to download and install the official application file.

With this, the fake application tricks the user by asking him/her to approve the application and grant permissions to access personal information, to post messages on wall and access posts in News Feed.

Facebook Video Calling Scam

When a user grants permission to the application, it automatically posts a message on the user’s wall and leads to a survey site.

Spammers mainly earn money/commission when they get users to answer such surveys. Sometimes, it may also lead to download of malware programs which may expose your personal details to the scammer without your knowledge.

It is recommended that you do not click on such scam messages and remove/delete any wall posts referencing “Video Call” or “Enable Video Calls” immediately. You can also report such scam messages or fake applications to Facebook Security.

If you are unaware of the Facebook’s new video calling feature and want to set up the official Video Chat with Skype, then check out How to Access Official Facebook Video Calling Service.
