It’s been a while since we talked to you about any of the scams that circulate on Facebook so we thought that whilst today’s scam is quite viral that we should talk to you about it. This FB Scam is titled “WOW, got a super free sexy T-shirt from facebook Team…” although it comes in many forms which we will talk about later. In the mean time, have a look at the image below that will show you exactly what the dirty little swine looks like on a Facebook wall.

As you can see, this one carries the messages “Redeem your official T-Shirt as a gift from our Team.” and another message that says “Facebook: 7th Birthday Celebration. Get your Free T-Shirts ordered from us. Share it with your friends! :)” There are a few clues in there that should set the alarm bells ringing, for example, have you heard anything about this from any news sites? There are also a couple of other messages that it carries as explained by the guys at Facecrooks.com that say “GOT a FREE T-shirt via Facebook Team…its pretty awesome & lookssuperb” and WOAH :O .. just received my awesome T-shirt from facebook Team..fb team is giving FREE t-shirts on its 7th bday Grab ur’s from here.” More alarm bells should be ringing as the standards of English aren’t really there!
