Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “who views your facebook profile with Profile Spy” SCAM, similar to the wall post below:

Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “who views your facebook profile with Profile Spy” SCAM

The scam message pretending to be able to find out who your Facebook stalkers are reads as follows:

OMG! Its unbeliveable now you can get to know who views your facebook profile.. i can see my top profile visitors and i am so shocked that my EX is still creeping my profile every hour

Why you should Avoid it:

This is a scam which relies on the Facebook User to be naive enough to copy and paste some code into their browser by following the instructions in the screenshot below:

Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “who views your facebook profile with Profile Spy” SCAM

Doing so will give these codes the ability to execute any action that it is programmed to carry out, including infecting your machine with malware, loading fake surveys and automatically re-posting the same link on your friends’ walls 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 every time one is completed.

Removal Instructions:

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:
