Facebook users should never click on the link in the fake post because it goes to a fake Facebook website that asks visitors to sign-in.

Facebook needs to confirm the following information to allow you access to this video application, Login! +18

If the visitors to the fake website attempt to sign into it, their username and password will be sent to the cybercriminals behind the scam. The cybercriminals will then use the stolen credentials to gain access to their potential victims Facebook accounts, hijack and use them fraudulently.
