Scam and Hoax - "CNN Breaking News AirAsia Flight QZ8501 Found in Tacloban Phillippines"

The social media post below: "CNN: Breaking News AirAsia Flight QZ8501 Found in Tacloban, Phillippines," is another Facebook video survey scam and hoax, which claims that CNN has reported that the AirAsia Flight QZ8501 has been found in Tacloban, Philippines. But, this is a fake CNN news report and a scam that will trick you into 'liking', sharing or completing surveys, which it claims you have to do in order to watch the video of the fake news report.

It is sad that cyber-criminals are taking advantage of the tragic disappearance of AirAsia Flight QZ8501.
