Get A Free Tickets to Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2: FB Scam

Another day another scam on the biggest social network of them all, Facebook! Recently we have reported on quite a few different ones including one titled “BREAKING: Lil Wayne Nearly Dies In FATAL Car Crash!” and another aimed at Lady GaGa. Today’s is titled, “Get a free tickets to Twilight Breaking Dawn Part 2″ and yes it’s another dirty scam.

As you can see from the above image, it infects you by gaining your interest from a wall post. When you first see something like that on Facebook you need to look quite hard at it as there’s normally clues to tell you it’s not for real. This one, you can tell it’s a scam because the title of it doesn’t make sense and you know that if it were official, there wouldn’t be a word out of place. Anyway, if you have clicked on it then you will have been directed to another page that looks pretty impressively official!

The page has a question that looks like a general fan question that says “Will Bella turn into a vampire?” with the option of “Yes” or “No” on buttons with a little survey. After you have followed through with answering all of their questions, you come to a point where you are asked to enter your email address and then hit continue as shown below.

This is where things get a bit sticky; when you read the fine print there’s a bit on there that the guys at Facecrooks.com say is a ridiculous hoop to jump through which involves completing several “Sponsor” Offers. The people running the advert are looking to grab your personal information if you were to follow through with it but it will also put the same scam onto your page when you follow it through.

Of course, we are in this to try and stop the spread of the scams and to try and keep the world’s largest social network as clean as possible.
