Here the scammers want you to copy and paste code directly into your address bar. Never, ever copy and paste code directly into your browser. You bypass security controls built into your web browser, and you totally expose your computer to the code creators. Sometimes you might be lucky and just have a survey scam load; however, this scam will attempt to infect your system with malware.

Keep in mind that profile spy and stalker apps are all bogus and violate Facebook’s TOS, and developers do not have access to the information required to complete such applications. For more information about them check out our in dept article:

How to Deal with the Scam:

If your anti-virus software failed to block the intrusion, then you could be spamming your friends with the scammer’s message. You should clean-up your newsfeed and profile to remove references to the scam. (click the “x” in the top right hand corner of the post). If your installed anti-virus program caught the malware attempt, then your system should not be affected. If you don’t have anti-virus software installed, then you need to that immediately and run a full system scan.
