Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “Demi Moore Catches Ashton Kutcher Cheating On Video” SCAM, similar to the wall post below:
The scam message reads as follows:
The real reason Demi Moore is divorcing Ashton! Caught
redhanded, cheating with a stripper
Why you should Avoid it:
This is another one of those “Survey scams” that flood Facebook News Feeds with malicious links. If you click on the above post (probably hoping to see a steamy performance, again!), you will be presented with the following fake website page, designed to look like Facebook:
This page attempts to trick you to post a comment saying “Cheater” in order to play the video! Clicking anywhere on such a page will expose you to countless malicious tactics, for example, loading fake surveys, infecting your machine with malware and automatically re-posting the same link onto your friends’ News Feeds without your knowledge.
Do not complete any surveys and do not give out any personal information which can and will be used to harm you. Some surveys require you to download something in order to proceed to the next stage, but they usually contain viruses or other malware that can infect your system. Usually, the person behind such a scam gets paid a commission too, everytime one survey is completed.
If you or your friends have fallen victim to this scam, then a full computer system scan must be carried out using the most up-to-date Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware software, some of which can be found in the List of Free Anti-Virus, Anti-Spyware, Anti-Malware and Firewall Software HERE. In case you submitted a telephone number for any surveys, then you should contact your service provider or carrier immediately to avoid any bogus charges.
The affected facebook user’s wall must also be cleaned out of all spam messages that may have been automatically posted after a Click-Jacking attack (Like-Jacking or Comment-Jacking). Just follow the simple instructions in the following links:
