Another Facebook Scam Video Goes Viral
Today, we have another video joining the ranks of all those “Shocking” videos that are currently available on Facebook. We’re referring to the ones with catchy titles and which ask you to know more by opening the link.
The latest addition to these scam videos is a “See What Happens To This Pregnant Lady” post, which you might already have seen circulating your feed. There’s nothing really shocking about the actual video. You can find it on YouTube and it does show a woman on a beach. However, there’s nothing about it that will change your perspective about life.
The scam running on Facebook, though, directs you to a fake Facebook page which then asks you to share the video before you are able to see it. Doing so, also reels in other unsuspecting and gullible fools who are present in your friends list.
With the video shared, you’re then directed to a fake YouTube page which then asks you to verify you’re human. You’re asked to enter personal information, and hence, begins the circulation of malware.
If you do come across the video on Facebook, know that you can still watch it by heading over to the actual YouTube video. Be smart, and stay away from links asking you to “Open” it.
Facebook really needs to bolster its system to banish such videos and the millions of fake accounts that instigate such content with bizarre titles to hook prey.
