Clicking play will cause your Facebook account to be “like-jacked” and you will be spamming the message to your friends via your own Newsfeed. The following survey scam also loads:

How to Deal with the Scam:

You need to clean up your Facebook account by removing the post from your Newsfeed and by “un-liking” the video. Do this by clicking the “x” in the top right hand corner of the post.

Never complete surveys to unlock videos or other content on Facebook. Scammers use these tricks to either spread malware, obtain personal identification or earn commissions from marketing companies. Don’t pad their pocket and possibly open yourself up to harm!

Some of the surveys require you to download files to your computer. Never do this! If you did so in error, then run a complete system scan with a good anti-virus software program. The I.Q. Quiz scam has been around for a while, and it typically requires you to enter your cell phone number to receive the results. The scammers then bill you  for premium services. Keep an eye on your phone bill for bogus charges.
