Facebook Scam

Post by aspen on Thu Dec 01, 2011 8:53 pm

This is a current scam getting around on Facebook as at 3rd December 2011.
If you happen to receive " WOAH! my profile was viewed 128 times" . Avoid it.
Clicking "Allow" will give the scammer access to your Facebook data at any time and the application will be able to post to Facebook as you. This will allow them to spam their scam messages to all of your friends.
"If you or your Facebook friends are falling for tricks like this, it's time to get yourself informed of the latest threats. Be sure to join the Facecrooks page on Facebook to be kept informed of the latest security issues." Facecrooks page is very much up to date with info Okay

Please tell us how/where this might be seen

Is it when you log in or via a message on a Wall or...how?

How do you 'avoid' it?

I have seen that. A lot of my friends did the same thing on fb but i dont know if they know that they got hacked or not. Its been on websites about it. very intresting to see that.

Ruby: people post it on their wall or send it to their friends, best is to delete the wall message or inbox message and dont click on the link. Advoiding it is best to remove it.

I should have included this link. Maybe this can clarify the matter a touch more.
