Shocking Video – Facebook Survey-Like-Share Scams

The Facebook posts below with the title "[SHOCKING VIDEO]", are survey and Facebook 'like/share’ scams. These scams will trick you into 'liking', sharing and completing surveys, which the cybercriminals behind them will benefit from. There is no video of the largest snake and the video of the most fatal accident is located on YouTube (see link below). So, do not be tricked into completing the surveys. Cybercriminals will use graphic or fake images, which they claim is a video, to trick gullible Facebook users into clicking on, thinking they will be able to view the videos depicted by the images.

Here are some of the '[SHOCKING VIDEO]' Facebook posts

Clicking on any of the Facebook post, will take you to one of malicious websites below:

  • hxxp://www.side.thenudistnetwork. com
  • hxxp://www.croc.xandyfree. com
    fake Facebook website www.croc.xandyfree. com

You may be redirected to another fake Facebook website: hxxp://www.ooho. tv/

This website will ask you to complete surveys in order to prove that you are at least 18 or ask to share/like. But, this is a trick to get you to complete the surveys that the cybercriminals behind this scam will get paid for or to spread this scam to your Facebook friends.

Remember, there is no video of the largest snake and the video of the fatal accident is located on YouTube at:
