Shocking Video - Flight MH370 Found In Indian Ocean - Facebook Video Scam

The Facebook post below: "[SHOCKING VIDEO] Flight MH370 FOUND in Indian Ocean!" is another Facebook video survey scam and hoax, which claims that Malaysian Flight MH370 has been found in the Indian Ocean. This scam will trick you into 'liking', sharing or completing surveys, which it claims you have to do in order to watch the video in the post. But, there is no video, so do not be fooled into completing the surveys, liking or sharing it.
