Looks like scammers are on a full rampage today and are releasing new Facebook scams at a very quick pace. Earlier today, a new scam broke out where scammers spread message about a dirty Rihanna video and now they are following it up with another video for Nicki Minaj.

This is the second time in last few months that scammers are spreading false messages and sex tape of Nicki Minaj. Earlier they  had targeted the same celebrity in the scam Nicki Minaj Sex Tape – Exclusive!!! and are currently doing it with another fake message which says:

The message links a user to a NSFW video which is supposedly hosted on a Blogspot site. However, clicking on the link will take the user to a page where they will be asked to share the URL in order to start playing the video.
