Phishing Facebook Message - "Hey Wat Are You Doing In This Videeo Wow! Skip To"

The message: "Hey, wat are you doing in this videeo? Wow! Skip to 1:53 omg.. who posted this? Type in and search ur name at www .VideoHuns.com," is a scam. This malicious Facebook message is being sent by scammers through compromised Facebook user accounts. A Facebook account is compromised when the user name and password are stolen, or the user has installed some malicious Facebook application.

For information on how to stop the malicious Facebook message from being sent from your account, please see the instructions below.

How this scam works?

Once a user’s Facebook account is compromised, the cybercriminals will use some automated programming code or a malicious Facebook application, to send the malicious message to all that person’s Facebook friends.

The Facebook friends who receive the message will think it came from a Facebook friend, because the message was sent from that person’s compromised account.

Now, because the message was sent by someone that the receivers know, they will quickly follow the instructions in it. The scammers made the message even more convincing, by putting the names of the recipients in it.

Example:

Hey mark, wat are you doing in this videeo? Wow! Skip to 1:53 omg.. who posted this? Type in and search ur name at www .VideoHuns.com

The website name or link: ‘www .VideoHuns.com,’ in the message, is a phishing or fake Facebook website.

If you go to the link, you will then be taken to another phishing or fake Facebook website: www.faceibuiksz.com. This website will ask you to sign in order to view a video, but if you do, it will send you Facebook user name and password to the cybercriminals behind this fake message and phishing websites.
