Once the recipients click the links and are taken to the fake the websites, they will be asked to sign-in with their usernames and passwords, purchase goods / services, or send their financial and personal information. The links will randomly take them to different malicious websites.

Any information (username, password, credit card number...) entered on the fake websites will be sent to the scammers, which they will use to hijack the victims' accounts, steal their identities and send the same scam to all of the victims' friends using their social networking and email accounts.

And, if you have entered your credit card information, please contact your bank.

Never click on a link in an email message to sign-in any of your online accounts. Always go directly to the website by typing the name of the website in your web browser's address bar or use a popular search engine to find the website.

If you click on a link, and you are taken to a website asking you to sign into your account, please do not. This is because scammers will create replicas of legitimate websites like Facebook and trick you into entering your credentials on it.

This is why it is very important to look at your web browser address bar to ensure that you are on a legitimate website. If you are taken to a website that that looks like Facebook, ensure that the website address in your web browser's address bar is ‘’.

Clearly, if you are on a website that looks like Facebook, but your web browser address bar has the website address “" in it, then it means you are on a fake or cloned Facebook website.
