Facebook: 'Dislike' Option Install Scam [bbc.co.uk]
|Facebook users are being targeted in a scam that offers them a chance to install a "dislike" button. |
The scam tricks users into allowing a rogue application to access their profile page, which then posts spam messages.
It also attempts to lure people into completing an online survey, for which the scammers are paid money.
|The dislike button scam prompts people to download an application with the message: "Download the official DISLIKE button now." |
