Once again the Facebook scammers trying to generate the users curiosity by claiming to watch a rare and shocking video “Man in wheelchair falls down the elevator shaft”.

Just like in the previous Facebook scams, clicking on the link will take you to the Facebook page which looks like to show you a video soon.

The fake video player window is over layered with a hidden iframe; clicking anywhere on it will submit a Facebook Like and spread the post to your Facebook wall and in turn will get shared with your friends too. You may think you’ll eventually get to see a video, but you won’t. The scammer’s goal is to drive more traffic towards certain sites, this is how they earns the money. They might also spread new malwares and obtain personal information.

Stay away from such Facebook scams.
