You will lose all respect for cyber-criminals after reading this blog post!
After sending out rumors Rihanna and Miley Cyrus have died, Facebook scammers are again spreading â€œembarrassingâ€ videos with the two American celebrities to steal usersâ€™ credentials and money through bogus surveys.
Users canâ€™t get enough of sexy videos with celebrities! So scammers â€œresurrectedâ€ two of the most popular American stars for a new Facebook trap. Fans will supposedly lose their respect (again!) for Rihanna and Miley Cyrus after watching the incredible videos posted on YouvTube. Yes, youv read it right! Scammers are grammatically-challenged on purpose, and the authentic logo of the video sharing website makes the masquerade more credible.
The sign up process stumbles at some point, and redirects users to endless money-making surveys. Depending on the IP detected, fans are also brought to local commercial websites such as horoscope and fun cards that install aggressive add-ons.
Due to likejacking, a malicious technique making users accidentally post updates, my friend had his account temporarily unavailable. He never got to see the promised sleazy sex video with Rihanna or Miley Cyrus.
