If you click on the Facebook post (DO NOT), you will be taken to the malicious and fake Facebook website: http://enculer.faboshine.com/antrabuzz.html, and ask to share before you can view the video. The scammers or cyber-criminals behind the scam will change the website names and images, so watch out for similar scams with different website names and images. And remember, cyber-criminals are continuously sending out different Facebook video scams, so please do not complete surveys, share or "like" a website in order to view a video.
Once on the website, the victim will be asked to complete surveys or share the same website before he/she can view the video.
Now, sharing this web page will only help spread this scam to other Facebook users. And, completing the surveys will only generate revenue for the cyber-criminals behind this scam.
The victim on the other hand, will not be able to view the video that they were promised, because it doesn't exist.
If you have shared this scam, remove the share Facebook post from your Timeline or Wall, because this will help stop the spreading of this scam.
If you are asked to share, "like”, complete surveys in order to view a video, picture or other content, is the first sign that you are being tricked or scammed. You do not need to do any of these things in order to view any content on Facebook and the rest of the internet.
