Why it’s a Scam:

Once you click on the Wall Post link, you are taken to the following page:

If you agree to install the “pro-views” application, you must agree to give the application developer full access to your basic information, the right to post to your wall, access your data any time and the right to manage your pages. Allowing them this access gives them permission to spam their message on your wall for all your friends to see. You should never give a third party application this much access unless you are 100% sure of their intentions and authenticity.

Keep in mind that profile spy and stalker apps are all bogus and violate Facebook’s TOS, and developers do not have access to the information required to complete such applications. For more information about them check out our in dept article:
