Candid Camera Prank![HQ] – Another facebook video scam



We recently mentioned that a Facebook video scam named Optical Illusion![HQ] is circulating. That application has been removed but another similar Facebook video scam named Candid Camera prank![HQ] has been circulating. Actually this is not a video and it links to an application which will take you to download a file named vlcplayer.exe. Running this will post this message on your friends wall.Candid Camera - Facebook scam

Here’s the message it displays on Facebook wall: Name, This is without doubt the sexiest video ever! 😛 😛 😛. The length is shown to be 3:17.

It seems this is the same scam by the person who developed the previous. When you click on the link, you will be taken to http://apps.facebook.com/nadq_sdas/. Then it will ask to continue and says that your video player is out of date. It then takes to another page to download a file. Don’t click these links when you see these types on posts on your wall on your Friend’s wall.

UPDATE: Its not just one app. There are several apps posting the same message. K-Multimedia, Winamp and so on. It seems that if one application is removed by Facebook, the developer develops similar scam. So, ignore all these types of posts showing “Name, This is without doubt the sexiest video ever! :P:P:P “

How to remove this application:Go to your profile and under settings, click application settings. Click on the “X” next to application name which may be K-Multimedia, Winamp or similar. If it has posted on your Friend’s wall, you must manually remove from each of your friend’s wall. If you have installed the program, it may contain virus or Malware. So, scan your computer with a Anti-virus. Change your Facebook Password too so that you can be safe.

    Please go to Account menu/Link then select “Application Settings”, find the winamp application, click on the “x” sign and confirm the deletion. Thats all.

    I got hacked with this. I clicked the initial “video” image, allowed the application to connect to my FB (like an idiot), but then closed it because I felt uncomfortable about it. I read about deleting winamp, but when I go to app. settings, winamp is not listed. So I thought I was in the clear.

    But then I started getting messages from my friends that I was posting “sexy videos” on my wall. If winamp is not listed, what else can I do?

    If it matters, I’m on a Mac.

    Thanks,

    get something like clamxav, a virus scanner for the Mac (the version for Windows is called ClamWin) and give that a run.

  • ps its such an embarssing video lollll. i had trouble telling my laptop guy to help me out with this one lol

  • Shae

    I unfortunately fell victim to this scam. I was so embarassed but it only sent to some of my friends-not all. But I didn’t download the file, once i got to the “video” I clicked the home button. But I didn’t know what to do so I deleted my account. It’s just deactivated until 14 days, then it completely disappears. But if I reactivate it before those 14 days, and I go to my settings and delete the application will it all be gone? Like it won’t send it to anyone else anymore? I just want to make sure, so I can save myself the embarassment of all of my other friends getting it, and so they don’t end up clicking the link.

  • @Shae: If you didn,t download the file, it will not send it. you can reactivate ur account. For safe side, scan your computer with an antivirus or malware scanner. I think the application is already removed by facebook.

    • Stefan

      that scam app is still active… it’s sorry to know that they didn’t do sh*t to block it
