Once on the website, the victim will be asked to complete surveys or share the same website. 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.
I have seen the same scam with a different image. See image below.
This video on the other hand, is located on popular video sharing website www.youtube.com.
If you have shared this scam, remove the shared Facebook post from your Timeline or Wall, because this will help stop the scam from spreading.
