Here we see the end game of a typical Facebook Survey Scam. Each time someone completes a survey – the scam creator gets a commission. You will not see a fat kid on a rollercoaster, but the scammer will have more of your private information. If you downloaded any games or other files then your computer could be infecting with a virus, trojan or other malware. Never download files from scams like this!

How to Deal with the Scam:

If you did make the mistake of clicking on the scam message and completing the survey scam, you will need to check your news feed and make sure you aren’t spamming the message to your friends. If you are, you need to remove the item from your wall by clicking the small “x” in the top right hand corner of the post.

Don’t ever download any software or files from sites like this. If you did, you need to update and/or install anti-virus software on your computer and run a complete system scan. There is a good possibility that your system is now infected with a virus, trojan or some other malware.

If you submitted your cell phone number for any of the surveys, then you should contact your carrier immediately to keep any bogus charges from appearing.
