The Celine Dion Died In Plance Crash Facebook Hoax

(Hollywood Breaking News) - R.I.P Celine Dion

At about 11 a.m. ET on Sunday (October 20, 2013), Celine Dion died in a plane crash.

The culprit for the story is Global Associated, aka Mediafetcher. "Celine Dion presumed dead in private plane crash", Global claims that Celine died today at "Denver Peak-Regional Airport". a small private aircraft in distress ceased radio contact with the control tower and fell below radar frequency after reporting engine trouble and smoke in the cockpit.

Actress, Celine Dion was believed to have been a passenger on the flight. Raw footage of her accident has been recorded and leaked to Fox Exclusive News but cannot be broadcasted over the air so it was uploaded via the internet for the public to view. Due to the graphic content of this video, please be advised 18+ only.

------

This Facebook post is a trick to lure persons to a malicious Facebook application by claiming that they can watch the full exclusive plane crash accident video recorded and leaked to Fox Exclusive News. This application will ask you to give it access to your Facebook account, which it will use to send the same hoax to all of your Facebook friends.

If you install the malicious Facebook application (DO NOT) by giving it permission to your Facebook account, you will be asked to download a "Facebook Media Plug-in", which the hoax claims you will need in order to view the full exclusive plane crash accident video.

But, there is no video and as I have said before, Celine Dion is alive. If you install the so-called "Facebook Media Plug-in" by clicking on the link, you will install a malicious computer program that will infect your computer with a virus or Trojan horse.
