I’m not a big fan of Rihanna, but whosoever is, will hate this new scam spreading on Facebook. The scam claims to show a leaked video of Rihanna making out with someone. The scam has the title – “WOW – You Will hate RIHANNA after watching this video!” followed by a link and a description that reads – “You Will Lose All Respect For RIHANNA After Watching This.”
Please beware that this is a fake message that is being spread across the social network. When users click on the scam link, they are taken to a fake page, which appears like Facebook and contains a video player. Clicking on the play button will not load the video, but will ask you to share the video link with your friends on Facebook .
Sometimes it may result in downloading malware programs or other malicious files, which could possibly harm your computer. These files are programmed in a way to steal your personal and confidential information without your knowledge.
It is recommended that you DO NOT click on such links or scam messages on Facebook. If you come across this scam message, please delete/remove the scam from your Facebook news feed immediately. Alternately, you can report the scam to Facebook Security.
With over 800 million users on Facebook, the social networking giant has always been a main target for spreading scams. It is quite difficult to identify scams on Facebook.
