Scam Signature Message: Amazing effect – WebCamera Big Baby Born !
This wall posting has been blurred because it contains a picture of a woman’s vagina. The actual video shows a full grown man’s head popping out like a baby.
Scam Type: Like-Jacking
Trending: May 2011
Why it’s a Scam:
Clicking the wall post link takes you to amazing-baby-born.blogspot[dot]com. A lot of scams are hosted on blogspot, so always be wary of any links to this domian.
Clicking the play button “like-jacks” your Facebook account and posts the spammer’s message to your Facebook Wall. At this time, it appears the sole purpose of the page is to generate advertising revenue from the display ads shown. We didn’t encounter any malware or survey scams, but that could change in the future.
How to Deal with the Scam:
If you did make the mistake of clicking the play button for the video, your NewsFeed now has a posting stating that you “like” the video shown above. Clean this up by clicking the “x” in the top right hand corner of the post.
