Always be careful what you click! You never know when a harmless looking link can get you into trouble!

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.
