    Thank you for making this info available because I just got this very alert while on facebook. I was very tempted to click on it but as the old adage states "If it's too good to be true....don't do it!!" (or something similar). I wanted to check it out to see if it was a scam, and low and behold it is, thank you for taking the time to help me and others from making what could be a serious mistake.
    A grateful facebooker.
