Another sick scam is doing rounds on Facebook. This one promises a porn video entitled "WTF! Girl Died After Painful Sex With A Horse!".
The scam spreads via Like posts on victims' Timelines. A typical one looks like this (part of image blurred):
Clicking the post will open a common fake Facebook page, hosted at a.agga.xxx.
The top part is an ad for Facebook apps and that's how cybercrooks make a part of their income.
The fake YouTube video is actually nothing more than a link that posts the fake Like on victim's Timeline.
After secret like-posting, typical survey scam appears on some fake YouTube page (this one actually looks a lot like the real one). That's the second method how crooks get their money. Do not fill any surverys, for they often lead to malware and unwanted SMS services (paid ones, of course).
Take three yes-no guesses if the video ever appears!
As usual, victims should clean up their Facebook Timelines or News Feeds. Click the X mark (Delete Post) on News Feed. On Timeline, click Pencil icon (Edit or Remove) and click Unlike.
Now Facebook asks if you want to unlike the video. Click Unlike.
If you filled some surveys, make sure you have not signed up for premium/paid services!
