If the link is clicked in the message, the potential victims will be taken to a fake Facebook app (see image below) that will ask them for their Facebook username, password and personal information.
The Fake Facebook Page Verification App
If the requested information is entered or submitted, it will be sent to the scammers behind the fake Facebook post or message.
With access to their victims' accounts, these cybercriminals will lock them out of their Facebook accounts by changing their Facebook email address and password. Once they have done this, they will use the hijacked accounts to send the same scam to the victims' friends.
Once the victims' accounts are taken over by these scammers and used for malicious purposes, Facebook may disable their accounts.
If you were tricked into clicking on any of these links and asked to enter your Facebook user name and password, please try changing your Facebook password immediately.
