FB Scam: this girl will never forget to turn her webcam of again

The scams that we see on Facebook are flowing thick and fast. Unfortunately with it being the biggest of the social networks in terms of number of users, it’s often the victim, we are seeing quite a few of them every day. The latest Facebook scam is titled “this girl will never forget to turn her webcam of again.” You can see the Facebook post below.

We have blocked out the image as it looks pretty suggestive however it was in fact a man’s armpit, you can see it at Facecrooks.com. The next thing you should notice here is the incorrect spelling of “off” within the sentence and then you have to wonder which of your friends would post something like this? The Facebook post carries the message “This girl should have really turned her cam off and not forgot.” If you have been unfortunate to have clicked on it then you will have been directed to another page which you can see below.

So you have been directed to what looks like a two minute video of a webpage titled “Old Grandma Tasered By Cop!” as informed by the guys over at Facecrooks.com. Apparently the first link can take you to a whole load of different webpages.

If you clicked on this then you will have just posted the same scam you your own wall which is something called like-jacking. This is part of the spread of the scam by the crooks as if your friend sees something you have liked then they are much more likely to click on it themselves. It will also load the survey scam.

This is the point they have been trying to get you too from the beginning, this is where they will try to obtain whatever details they can from you. We cannot iterate to you enough just how important it is not to add your details here, you could end up being the victim of crimes in the future.

As always we need to talk to you about how to get rid of this little nasty that you have clicked on, the first thing you have to do is navigate to the post on Facebook and hit the “X” button in the top right hand corner of the post and select “Mark as Spam.” This will help prevent the spread of the scam and you should check out our guide for the next steps.
