Buyer Beware! A new Facebook scam comes complete with what looks like actual facts and photos from a bogus CNN source saying that the missing flight MH-370 has been found at sea. The user thinks they are being taken to a trusted news source with headlines that claim 50 passengers have been “saved.”
Then it draws the user in by saying the site will take them to shocking videos and breaking news about the MH-370’s passengers last screams. Whatever you do, don’t click on it.
If you do click on any of these false stories, you will be taken to a place that asks you for personal information like your age, and fill out surveys which in turn somehow makes professional scammers money. Be smart, don’t fall for it.
