The fake message claims the potential victims were seen in a video and they should go to the fake website in order to view the video. But there is no video. The fake websites look exactly like the legitimate Facebook website and once the potential victims are taken to the website, they will be asked to sign into their Facebook accounts. But, any attempt to sign into the fake Facebook websites, will send the potential victims’ Facebook usernames and passwords (credentials) to the cyber-criminals behind the fake websites.
