As you can see, there’s a distinct lack of ginger haired men clotheslining one another in favour of “random woman on a night out or something”. The Facebook style blue bar at the top says “[VIDEO] WTF! I just saw, Is that even Humanly possible?”

The…UnfriendFinder? Amazing (even more so because there’s an actual plugin called just that, so I guess the website is riding on coat-tails here. No way of knowing if the site actually offered anything to install or if this is just a ruse, as the site was taken offline during examination).

Of course, you’re asked to fill in a survey. Elsewhere, on the same website, we have a “Facebook: Check who is watching your profile” page.

With the big WWE TLC event only days away, it could be well worth your time keeping an eye out for wrestling themed scams and avoiding a big boot over the top rope into the bargain.
