Beware! New Facebook App Scam On The Loose

Facebookers keep an eye out, because yet another scam is on the run and it is similar to the ones we have seen before. Although instead of spamming, this one is nastier as it can access your personal information and pose as you, with the ability to post status updates, share links and look at anything that has been shared with friends.

Vipre Business reports that once again users are greeted with an irresistible status update which most unsuspecting members would click on. The link reads: “OMG OMG OMG… I cant believe this actually works! Now you really can see who viewed your profile!”. Once the link is clicked you have given the scammers unlimited access to a your profile and personal details.

For anyone who has seen this scam going around we would advise you to go nowhere near it and alert friends who are not aware of it. It may be even worth posting a warning to people on your status update and running an anti-virus scan. It is likely that the Facebook team are working to resolve this issue, but we have had no word from them yet. Recently they have been taking legal action against the scammers they have caught.
