Trending: May 2011
Why it’s a Scam:
Clicking on the Wall post link takes you to the follow page:
This site has been engineered to look like a standard YouTube video page. A quick look in the address bar shows that you are not on YouTube. The page also attempts to load Trojan virus into your system.
How to Deal with the Scam:
You need to clean up your Facebook account by removing the post from your Newsfeed and by “un-liking” the video. Do this by clicking the “x” in the top right hand corner of the post.
If you do not have anti-virus protection installed or if yours failed to detect the intrusion, then you should install or update your anti-virus software and run a complete system scan of your computer.
