Poor Girl Ended Up in the Emergency Room after This - Facebook Video Scam

The Facebook post: "Poor Girl Ended Up in The Emergency Room After This" is a scam. The post will take Facebook users to a website looking like Facebook, in an attempt to trick them into sharing it or completing surveys, by promising to show them a video depicted by the image in the Facebook post. But, there is no video.

Clicking on the post will only take you to the fake Facebook website: www.fbgamebonus .com
The cybercriminals may use another fake website.

Once on the website, the victim will be asked to complete surveys or share the same website. 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 cybercriminals 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.

I have seen the same scam with a different image. See image below.

This video on the other hand, is located on popular video sharing website www.youtube.com.

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.
