Why it’s a Scam:

Clicking the wall post link takes you to the following page:

fb_birthday_main

After you “like” and “share” the post, you are supposed to “Click Here” to continue. Doing so loads the following:

Anytime a site asks you to copy and paste code into an address bar or anywhere, it should be a big, red flag to you. The scammers here are aiming to get your Facebook mobile email address.

How to Deal with the Scam:

If you did make the mistake of sharing the scam link, then you are now spamming your friends with the very same message. Clean-up your newsfeed and profile to remove references to the scam. (click the “x” in the top right hand corner of the post).

If you followed the scammers directions, then you also to refresh your Facebook mobile email address. Graham Cluley, with Sophos, gives detailed directions on how to do that in this blog post.
