Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “In order to PREVENT SPAM, I ask that you VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT” scam similar to the Wall Post below:

Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “In order to PREVENT SPAM, I ask that you VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT" scam

The scam message on your Facebook Wall reads:

In order to PREVENT SPAM, I ask that you VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT. Click VERIFY MY ACCOUNT right next to comment below to start the process…

Why you should Avoid it:

This scam wall post entices Facebook Users with the dream of preventing spam simply by verifying their account. But far from being the cure to the torrent of spam links on facebook, this fake link labelled ==VERIFY MY ACCOUNT== is infact a JavaScript Code that will immediately attempt to infect your computer with malware if a user clicks it. SO DO NOT CLICK IT!

If you or your friends have fallen victim to this rather obvious spam message, 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. The facebook user’s wall must also be cleaned out of all spam messages that may have been automatically posted by the malware.
