Clicking on this Facebook post (DO NOT) will only take you to the fake Facebook website: www.internationalmedias.co.uk. The website name may change, so look out for the same scam on different websites.

And, clicking the image, which appears as a video, on the fake web page will ask you to share.

You need to verify to view this video

Clicking this fake shared "You need to verify to view this video" dialog box will only ask you to like, share the same page or complete surveys in order to verify your age. But, it is the fake Facebook web page that the scammers want you to "like" or share, which will make it popular. Once the page is popular, these scammers can sell it to online marketers or other scammers. They will also make money from the surveys that are completed by gullible Facebook users who were tricked into completing them. Now, if you have shared and "liked" this fake Facebook post, please remove all shared Facebook posts and "unlike" it.

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.
