Amazing Effect – Web Camera: Another Facebook Like-Jacking Scam

At OSM we have been making a consorted effort to inform you all of some of the virus and scams that are circulating around the massive social network Facebook. Some of the recent reports include the apparent addition of the Dislike button, the HCG diet and another that apparently tells you why you shouldn’t eat fast food.

Now we have caught wind of another that is causing many people some grief, it’s a post titled “Amazing Effect – Web Camera” and it’s another Facebook Like-jacking scam. The post claims to show you a big baby being born but the image of it is blurred out below, we will tell you why next.

The image has been blurred because it contains a picture of a woman’s vagina and when you follow the link it shows you a video of a fully grown man’s head popping out like that of a baby. We learned of this through an article over on facecrooks.com where the author informs us that clicking the post will take you too amazing-baby-born.blogspot[dot]com which hosts a number of scams so take care with this domain.

If you are unfortunate enough to have clicked on it already then you will have spammed all of your friends with the same message spreading the scam further. What you should do next to get rid of it and stop your profile being at risk is clean up your posts by removing them using the “X” sign and then follow this guide which will help you get rid of the unwanted “Liked” page. We would also urge you to share this information with your friends to try and stop the scam spreading any further.
