How the Facebook Video Scam Works

Online users who click on the Facebook post (DO NOT), will be taken to malicious and fake Facebook websites and ask to share before they can view the so-called video.

The scammers or cybercriminals behind the video scam will change the website names and images, so watch out for similar scams with different website names and images.

Once on the websites, the potential victims will be asked to complete surveys or share the same websites before they can view the so-called video.

The victims on the other hand, will not be able to view the video that they were promised, because it doesn't exist.

Facebook users who have shared the scam, can remove the shared Facebook post from their Timelines or Walls. This will help stop the scam from spreading to other users.
