New Facebook Scam: Girl Killed Herself After Dad Posted On Wall
By on December 19th, 2010

Well, welcome to another new scam. This one is also as enticing as the past few one’s I have written about. But it looks like someone is just taking this scam to a new level altogether, saying that a girl committed suicide after her dad posted on her Facebook wall.

Facebook OMG Dad Killed Daughter Scam

This is not surprising at all, if you have read or seen the revolving images spam or the fake like button scam or the who checked your Facebook profile scam or the Free iPad test scam or the Cashreport Scam.

Spam Girl Killed Herself Facebook App

Once again, the page for this link leads to a Facebook app, which is nothing but an image with some clever comments et al, however, clicking on it will make you like that page and post a comment on your wall as seen above. Don’t click on anything and let your friends know about it too so that they can delete that update and not infect anyone else.

How can you avoid this? No matter how much we tell people to avoid fake warnings and hoaxes, they still manage to surprise us. We wish we could reach out to 500 million users. Just don’t click on links which look "sexy", "enticing" or "sounds really unreal". Many of these scams just take on human curiosity and succeed big time. So stay curious but don’t click on links which look enticing. If you do, you are just spreading the virus further. Remember, everything that glitters is not GOLD.

Facebook is a huge service, but things like these spoil everything. The amount of Scam and spams that get through to Facebook is astonishing. It is high time that Facebook does something about it. I don’t want to see 50% of my friends updates to be scam or spam posts in 2011.

    its sick ppl can come up with something like this for a scam. kind of criticize those who how commited suicide. like its a joke. suicide isn’t a funny or scam like matter, its something that should be takin seriously not as a joke. thousands of teens and adults commit suicide everyday and rather than people doin something to prevent it, ppl are makin scams about it. once again, whoever created scam is VERY MUCH SO SICK!! …..kinda puts em in tha “perverted” category if u ask me…

    Yes… what have people become these days. Everytime I tell someone it’s a scam, they say that I’m heartless for not caring about these “victims of child abuse”.

    I think the scammers have hit a jackpot.

    Guess the best way to deal with these kind of scams is to find the author and prosecute him/her.That will help to some extent.

  • Jimmy

    It’s wrong that there is an unknown link near the top of the page

  • Chris

    When I looked at this I knew it had to be a hoax, by the way it wanted to install an app into my FB account…. I am glad to see I was completely right and found evidence here which I have now published this article in my FB page as I have already seen it twice today.

    I saw this scam on my facebook wall and it really scared me. There was this girl laying on her bed with blood all over and it was just sick. I was tagged in this bloody photo… and I reported it to facebook, messaged my friend to take the photo off, and unfriended her. I didn’t realize it was a scam at the time.
