Facebook Scams to look out for

Facebook users have been plagued by scam messages claiming that they can find out who has been viewing their profiles.

 

Typically, the messages claim that you need to click a link and then install a Facebook app to access a list of people who have viewed your profile. After you have installed the rogue app - which will spam all of your friends with more scam messages - you will be told that you must complete a survey before you can see the list.

 

As described in more detail in the Facebook Survey Scams Knowledge Guide ( http://www.hoax-slayer.com/what-is-a-survey-scam.shtml ), the suspect survey pages will attempt to trick you into divulging your personal information or signing up for expensive SMS services.
