Cybercriminals are continuously creating fake Facebook websites and sending out different Facebook video scams, so please do not complete surveys, share or "like" a website in order to view a video.
Why Scammers Create These Scams
This social networking post created by the cybercriminals will take you to a fake Facebook or other malicious websites, and ask you to complete surveys or share the same website before you can view the video.
Now, sharing the malicious website or post 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 on the same website.
