Different types of Facebook scams are spreading this holiday season. Recently, a scam saying girl killed herself on Christmas was viral. Now, its another one saying the status update got a girl killed herself from School. This is a type of Like-Jacking scam from a rogue app taking you finally to a survey and Premium services.
Here are the messages seen on the wall:
“ha ha check this out..she is soo busted” “you got to see this she’s in such trouble”. This is from an app named “-)9”.
Here’s how the scam works:
1) On clicking the link you are taken to the site http://skoolxa.info/0/signin.php which asks you to Login via. facebook.
2) On clicking on allow, you are taken to a survey scam which wants to get paid. The survey even wants your personal info like phone no. address.
3) In the process, it also posts the message on your wall.
So, the best idea is to ignore this. If you clicked it, please remove the application by moving to your Application setting.
