F1 Star Michael Schumacher Dead After Coming Out Of Coma - Facebook Video Scam

The hoax below: "F1 Star Michael Schumacher dead after come out from COMA few seconds ago," which claims that Formula One Star, Michael Schumacher died after coming out of a coma, will take Facebook users to a fake Facebook website, in an attempt to trick them into sharing it or completing surveys, by claiming that they need to do this before they can view the breaking news report.

Please continue reading below.

But, Michael Schumacher is NOT dead. He has emerged from a coma that he has been in for the past six months, following a skiing accident last year. He has been moved to a Swiss location close to his family home.

Cybercriminals are continuously sending out different Facebook video scams, so please do not complete surveys, share or "like" a website in order to view a video.

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.
