Cybercriminals are continuously sending out different Facebook video survey scams, so please do not complete surveys, share or "like" a website in order to view a video.
The scammer or cybercriminals behind this scam will change the website names and images, so watch out for similar scams with different website names and images.
Once on one of these websites, the victim will be asked to complete surveys, share the same website on Facebook, or asked to submit their email and personal information before he/she can view the video.
Restricted Video: To Start the video, please share it below!
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.
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.
If you are asked to share, "like”, complete surveys in order to view a video, picture or other content, is the first sign that you are being tricked or scammed. You do not need to do any of these things in order to view any content on Facebook and the rest of the internet.
