You Must Be Out Of Your Mind To Click This Facebook Scam

By Ryan Majeau

That’s right, Facebook has been hit again by another trending scam. Chances are you may have seen the following post at least once in your News Feed:

This girl must be Out of her Mind to do this on live Television!
[LINK]
Watch the embarrassing moment of her!

Like other Facebook scams in the past, clicking the link will try and make you jump through a number of hoops to view a video that doesn’t actually exist. The result of playing along with this Facebook scam will have your account hijacked and the link will be shared with all of your friends.

The fun doesn’t stop there though. The scam continues with surveys or prize draws to help the scammers make more money off of you.

If you were unfortunate enough to be fooled by this latest Facebook scam it’s not the end of the world. Just be sure to remove the posts from your News Feed and keep an eye out for any rogue Likes on your profile (under your likes and interests).
