Yet Another Facebook Scam!

'OMG' Facebook Scam Doesn't Let You See Who Viewed Your Profile

  • omg scam
Yet another scam is making its way around Facebook, and it's affecting a disturbingly high number of users. As Sophos explains, the scam is spreading via Wall posts that read: "OMG OMG OMG... I cant believe this actually works! Now you really can see who viewed your profile!" Once the attached link is clicked, you're redirected to a rogue application that requests access to your Facebook pages. If you grant access to the app, however, you'll inadvertently spam all your other Facebook friends with the exact same message. (And you'll never find out who's looking at your Facebook profile.)
