I am writing this post for you!
In the last 24 hours, I’ve been inundated with facebook scams compelling me to write this post.
A chat window would pop up from someone on my list. I know it was a FISHING SCAM right away because this person would not normally address me that way. I am older than her and she usually honor that. But some are not too obvious but really stupid.
Don’t be Fooled!
If you are foolish enough to click on these chat pop ups, and wall posts, you are HARMING your friends and helping these scumbags spread the virus. Because as soon as you click on the link, your entire FRIENDS LIST will get the same scam message. Get it?
What Is Fishing?
A phishing scam is when someone fraudulently and illegally imitates a trustworthy source to steal usernames, passwords, credit cards info, etc.
It can not only occur through e-mail, but also through wall posts, facebook messages, and Facebook chat.
SO DON’T BE CLICK HAPPY – STOP AND THINK.
Here’s another one – a perfect bait for those low lifers.
What To Do
If you get these from your friends, you must alert them to do the following:
1. Remove the wall post, or chat (if it’s not too late). So no one else from your friends will click it.
2. Change their log in info’s
3. Go to their account setting and remove any unwanted apps.
4. Tell them to not do it again!
