Although, the Facebook post below is a scam, there is actually a video, which you can search for. But, if you are asked to complete surveys, "share/like", or download software before you can watch the video, some cybercriminals are attempting to scam you, and you should leave the website without following any instruction on it. You should be able to watch the video without doing any of those things.
