Shocking Facebook Scams Are On The Rise – You’re Not Gonna “Like” This [VIDEO]

You know how it is on Facebook.  It’s all about the “likes“.  People blindly “like” every Tom, Dick, Harry or Sue on the planet – many times without the slightest clue as to who they are liking.  And that, my Facebook friends, is where our story begins! 

According to an article at CNET.com, whenever you press that button, you might just be telling a scammer much more about yourself than you think.

If they are begging you to click by flirting with you or saying things such as “please LIKE this page and you will help cure me of cancer”, that should be a red flag.

Other sites try to actually sell you a big group of “likes” so you can beef up your own business Facebook pages.  They might ask for money, but even if they don’t, they might sell you a bunch of names that won’t help your particular business at all.

It’s actually called Facebook Farming, and I found a good news story on YouTube  about it that you should pay close attention to.

Scary stuff.  I can’t think of anything these days that scammers AREN’T involved in.  Have you ever been scammed using a tactic like this?  Would love to know

“Fortunately, I don’t have to worry about this kind of stuff.  I don’t have any “Friends in Cyberspaces“.  Take a listen!
