Beware of "You Will Not Use Head and Shoulders Shampoo After Watching This Video" Scam

The Facebook video scam: "[12+ VIDEO] You Will Not Use Head & Shoulders Shampoo After Watching This Video," will take Facebook users to a fake Facebook website, in an attempt to trick them into sharing it or completing surveys, by promising to show them a video of an unusual and abnormal creature growing on someone's body. But, it is a scam and there is no video.

Please continue reading below.


The image on the person's skin is a "Lotus Seed Pod", and it was edited and placed on the skin using a photo editing software like PhotoShop.

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.

How the Facebook Video Scam Works

If you click on the Facebook post (DO NOT), you will be taken to the malicious and fake Facebook website: www.standmixerreview.biz, and ask to share before you can view the video.

The Fake Facebook Video Post

Unidentified Creatures Living on Womans Fingers - Facebook Video Scam

[12+ VIDEO] You Will Not Use Head & Shoulders Shampoo After Watching This Video

The scammers 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 the website, the victim will be asked to complete surveys or share the same website before he/she can view the video.

Restricted Video - Every share=One Thank you from us for you

But, sharing the web page will only help spread the scam to other Facebook users. And, completing the surveys will only generate revenue for the cybercriminals behind the 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 the scam, remove the share Facebook post from your Timeline or Wall, because this will help stop the spreading of the 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.

The Facebook scam is similar to the following:

    Hey Admin, I clicked the "You will Never Use This Shampoo After Viewing This Video!" and shared only to me in Facebook, then it asked for some iPhone survey which I closed without even starting the page, and I also deleted the shared post, without watching the video, which did not exists.

    Will my account be hacked by others or computer get infected, because of malware? -- Can you please suggest to me what has to be done.


    • Posted: 2015-08-31T10:12:56 by info

      You have done everything that you need to do. Your computer will not get infected and your account will not be hacked. But, if you want to, you may do a full scan of your computer with the anti-virus software that you have installed on it.

    This gave me nightmares until I researched it....even though I know it is a scam I still can not get it out of my mind.


    • Posted: 2016-02-08T14:11:39 by an anonymous user from or near: London, England, United Kingdom

      I am the same. Freaks me out . I feel sick!


  • Posted: 2015-01-19T20:58:07 by an anonymous user from or near: Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

    If Facebook knows this is a fake and scam, why can't they stop this & why do you allow this ?


    • Posted: 2015-01-20T02:18:49 by info

      Policing the internet is a very difficult job, especially when it is apart of a global community. All the large internet companies are working hard to find scams, spam and other malicious activities on the internet.


  • Posted: 2014-08-12T09:40:43 by an anonymous user from or near: North Bergen, New Jersey, United States

    OMG! thank you for this, I was one of the people who got scammed last evening. I have this phobia of clusters and still now my skin is crawling even though I know it is fake. I filled out he entire survey and still no video. I was annoyed.

    One thing to keep in mind is if the photo had been authentic, the breast wouldn't look so normal.

    Can you imagine the inflammation and redness that would be present?


    • Posted: 2014-07-31T09:41:28 by an anonymous user from or near: Salisbury, Maryland, United States

      Right!! But I rather see the real one over the photo-shopped. I guess by it being so perfect and detailed that's what makes it so darn gross and the head and shoulder one the huge holes and pods are just too gross my skin just keeps crawling...

    Here are two more malicious websites that have this scam:

    I shared the video and I deleted it. Will my facebook and mobile be affected?

    That image has been seen by my 16 year old daughter who has been physically sick and can't get rid of the image.
    She had a nightmare about it last night.

    I'm no prude and get that its a lotus flower seed pod and have tried to show and explain it to her, but it just freaks her out...That is the point of it after all.

    My question is does anyone know who actually put the time in to produce the image. Maybe his name, address and telephone number and what his day to day movements are...I'd really love to visit him and thank him personally.


    • Posted: 2014-08-08T14:26:26 by an anonymous user from or near: Danbury, Connecticut, United States

      I feel the same way,.......something should be done.......I can't shake the image and it's causing nightmares


    • Posted: 2014-07-26T10:52:38 by an anonymous user from or near: Dublin, Leinster, Ireland

      I'm so glad I read your message I'm a mother of three kids and since I have seen this image my skin keeps crawling I can't get the image out of my head and even when I wake up at night it comes straight back into my head I wish I never saw it I share your daughters feeling on this.


      • Posted: 2015-08-11T09:32:03 by an anonymous user from or near: Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire, United Kingdom

        Same here, who ever did this, it is not funny.


    • Posted: 2014-07-09T17:08:52 by an anonymous user from or near: Salisbury, Maryland, United States

      I so feel for her...that image is hard to get rid of..I delete every person on my Facebook who shares this video.. I keep telling myself what it really is but it don't help.. I hate looking at things with holes in it or around it...smh I may need some help it is just that bad...but I hope your daughter will be OK..


      • Posted: 2014-07-09T18:01:27 by info

        You do not need to delete persons who shared it, because they were tricked into sharing it. A lot persons who shared, didn't do it intentionally.

        The scammers responsible for these fake Facebook posts are tricking hundreds or even thousands of Facebook users. You can help these persons by educating them and sharing articles on this website with them.


    • Posted: 2014-07-08T17:34:26 by an anonymous user from or near: Zoetermeer, Zuid-Holland, Netherlands

      Same here :-( I am 42.. I know its fake, but I cannot get it out off my mind, I am sick all day..


      • Posted: 2014-07-09T14:49:27 by an anonymous user from or near: Kraków, Malopolskie, Poland

        Same with me. I am 24 and feel sick whole day today after seeing the image:((


        • Posted: 2014-09-01T05:16:38 by an anonymous user from or near: Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

          I believe it has nothing to do with how old you are, this image is very disturbing and the person who did it should be sued.

          My skin is aching all day because of it and I cannot pull it out of my mind, it's a living nightmare.

          May god give the person who did what he really deserves!


  • Posted: 2014-06-30T02:22:35 by an anonymous user from or near: Dharmapuri, Tamil Nadu, India

    I downloaded some software ... will the hackers have my ip address and log in details ?


    • Posted: 2014-06-30T07:39:59 by info

      Yes, if the software that you have downloaded is a Spyware, Trojan horse or some other malware.

      Use the antivirus software on your computer to scan all the files(full scan) on it.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T14:30:10 by an anonymous user from or near: Los Angeles, California, United States

    So if I completed the "survery" it won't affect what ever device I use?..is something going to happen to my Facebook account?


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T16:13:20 by info

      No it will not affect the device, but you will help the scammers get rich, because they get paid for each completed survey.

      Your Facebook account is ok, but sharing this on your Facebook Wall/Timeline will only help spread this scam to your Facebook friends. ~


      • Posted: 2014-06-29T08:20:27 by an anonymous user from or near: Bronx, New York, United States

        What if I give false info for a false tale. Quod pro quo. They get what they give, and the survey people will know these people are not good... Perhaps do better research into there referrals.... or stop doing stupid surveys all together


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T14:03:28 by an anonymous user from or near: Pitman, New Jersey, United States

    The "creature" is the Lotus seed pod!!! google it


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T13:54:11 by an anonymous user from or near: Sherman, Texas, United States

    The picture is photoshopped. The "creatures" or "larve" do not exist. Neither does the video.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T13:39:07 by info

    The image in the post was taken from an article posted a few years ago that claims that a woman discovered the holes in her breast after an expedition in South America.

    The holes were made by Botfly larvae that had hatched on her breast and started feeding her breast tissue.


    • Posted: 2014-06-30T00:07:39 by an anonymous user from or near: Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom

      Wrong... The Botfly Video is a separate one, but because there is an issue with Botfly's, the scammers hope that people will make that connection and believe the video is real...

      I have checked everywhere now and it is a Lotus Flower.


      • Posted: 2014-07-11T08:00:11 by info

        Thanks for the clarification.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T13:09:38 by an anonymous user from or near: Austin, Texas, United States

    How can I find this video?


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T16:39:20 by an anonymous user from or near: Houston, Texas, United States

      You can actually research botfly larvae on youtube and it shows you what the scammers are trying to make look real in a way


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T13:35:18 by info

      There is no video.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T12:11:33 by an anonymous user from or near: Lancaster, Wisconsin, United States

    What is it then. what kind of creature is it


    • Posted: 2016-05-29T07:51:51 by an anonymous user from or near: Madison, Wisconsin, United States

      It's a lotus seed pod. A lotus is a flower. Lotus flowers are kinda pretty. Their seed pods? Well, not so much, but for me, it is just "meh", but someone with certain phobia(s), like trypophobia (the fear of clusters of holes) or botanophobia (fear of plants), would obviously have an all-out panic attack, complete with symptoms such as racing heartbeat, dizziness, headache, upset stomach, breathing issues, high blood pressure, the whole works. (Yeah, I don't have the phobias I just talked about, but I have dealt with other anxiety disorders, one of which just freaking relapsed after a couple years of having been recovered, the other of which I just recently found out I had after having it most of my life and not knowing I had it, so I know how panic attacks feel - they are not fun at all.)


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T11:48:46 by an anonymous user from or near: Midvale, Utah, United States

    I know its a scam but I would like to know what the hell that is anyways. Is that real? Its so gross!


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T14:01:10 by an anonymous user from or near: Columbus (East Columbus), Ohio, United States

      Its a lotus seed pod


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T13:52:07 by an anonymous user from or near: Sherman, Texas, United States

      There is no creature...or video. It was photoshopped to intrigue you enough to click the link.


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T13:51:47 by an anonymous user from or near: Antioch, Tennessee, United States

      It's not real. It's a photo shopped image. There is no creature.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T11:10:26 by an anonymous user from or near: Phoenix, Arizona, United States

    Can anyone say what this video or picture Really is though?


    • Posted: 2016-05-29T07:53:22 by an anonymous user from or near: Madison, Wisconsin, United States

      Lotus seed pod. The lotus flower is pretty, but the seed pods, well, they strike me as boring, but I don't have things like botanophobia or trypophobia to deal with, so, yeah, it would obviously affect other people way more severely than simply being bored by it.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T11:04:56 by an anonymous user from or near: Springfield, Illinois, United States

    What is this an image of then? I get that it isn't real, but what is it derived from?


    • Posted: 2016-05-29T08:13:57 by an anonymous user from or near: Madison, Wisconsin, United States

      It's a lotus seed pod. Lotus flowers are pretty, but their seed pods are not all that pretty. Some people have certain phobia disorders that make them afraid, like trypophobia, which is the fear of clusters of holes, botanophobia, the fear of plants, or perhaps, for some, it might be a manifestation of something like dysmorphophobia, which is the fear of deformity.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T08:47:30 by an anonymous user from or near: Andrews, Texas, United States

    Thanks, I think I will tell my friend that it is a hoax.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T06:34:20 by an anonymous user from or near: Rocky Mount, North Carolina, United States

    Can this scam harm my computer?


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T07:58:48 by info

      No, but if you are taken to a malicious website and download and install malware, your computer will get infected.

      Sometimes these scams will redirect you to malicious websites.


  • Posted: 2014-06-27T05:47:55 by an anonymous user from or near: Honolulu, Hawaii, United States

    Kinda found out, because there is no video on YouTube.


    • Posted: 2014-06-27T09:27:30 by an anonymous user from or near: Austell, Georgia, United States

      This is a scam to get you to apply for things.


      • Posted: 2014-07-07T05:43:17 by an anonymous user from or near: Noida, Uttar Pradesh, India

        This is so vulgar and ridiculous…please stop sharing such thing.
