facebook like scam
« on: January 09, 2014, 08:19:44 pm »


Over the past period, several like-farming scams have been spotted on Facebook. Scammers replicate the Facebook pages of legitimate companies, promise all sorts of prizes, and make up various stories to get users to click the “like” button.
 

 Hoax Slayer has come across another like-farming scam. This time, the scammers are using a picture from the funeral of a bomb detection dog that’s said to have saved many lives in India.
 
 The picture of the dog is genuine. The dog, named Zanjeer, detected over 3 tons of explosive and was buried with full police honors.
 
 There’s nothing wrong in respecting the dog’s activity, but what the scammers are doing is despicable. They’re trying to convince Facebook users that “1 like = 1 respect” for the “great dog.”
 
 In reality, they’re trying to harvest “likes” for their Facebook page, which they can later sell on underground markets or use to advertise their own shady products or services.
 
 So, next time you see one of these “1 like = 1 respect” posts on Facebook, make sure that it’s not just another like-farming scam.

I AGREE.

But FB is full of IDIOTS, who even believe that their 'LIKES' are gonna bring water to people in Africa.  :O)
