By | September 7th, 2016|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , |

I'm sorry to be writing about Whatsapp again so soon and I'm sorry that it's about yet ANOTHER Whatsapp hoax message but I had to warn you that there is a new scam going around - because I've seen it so many times already!   Its similar to the last one Whatsapp 4.0.   This Whatsapp 4G VIP Scam is fooling users into thinking that it is a real update.   Its more like an extention of the phishing scam Whatsapp Version 4.0 where the post action lists the extra features that you can get. The promises on this new VIP scam are as follows Private Messaging, while withholding your number Free WiFi mode Video Calling See who has viewed your profile picture on Whatsapp Free calls Of course, not everyone can have this - its VIP don't you know, it's for special people who invited users only.  So you must invite your friends before you can download.  (ALARM BELLS YET?) Also as usual with these scams if look carefully at the message - is written in bad English, (worse than mine, [...]

Facebook Private Messages appearing on Timeline isn’t Privacy Bug

By | September 24th, 2012|Categories: Social Media|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

TechCrunch alerted readers that private messages were appearing on Timeline as posted by friends.   I think people might actually be getting paranoid about Facebook privacy now. I must say I've never trusted it either.  So is it a hoax or not? Today we read a post created by Techcrunch - They said that private messages were appearing on your timeline, they said it didn't seem worldwide, it appeared so far to be only in France. The messages appeared in a box that said friends posted to your wall. I was half convinced that this was an isolated case but I headed over to my wall - timeline to check, and I noticed 2 posts that could have been private messages - I thought, Wow its true, this is bad - and I continued on to see if I could find any more - but I couldn't.  I did indeed find the box they mentioned for the year 2009 with about 200 wall messages from friends, but they were not private messages, mostly birthday wishes. These have always been visible on your Facebook wall. However, it [...]

New Facebook Scam – Oakleys Sunglasses Hoax

By | May 10th, 2012|Categories: Scams|Tags: , , , , , |

There is a new Facebook scam that promises you a Free Pair of Oakleys Sunglasses. Its not from Oakley sadly, so no free sunglasses, just a hoax. Slightly different to all of the other survey scams we have discussed. The message appears on your friends wall, so you think it must be safe he has done it, wrong! To celebrate the Summer, Oakley is giving away free shades to all Facebook users. Its a two step process this time where you have to first share the link and then like the page - Liking the page takes you to a survey that asks for your personal information, this is something you should never put in a survey anyway. As we've discussed before the reason behind this scam is that the scammer gets paid for every survey completed. As writing this it seems that Facebook may have blocked the survey so that is one good thing but people are still sharing the link. Which in itself at the moment is harmless but I assume it won't be long until the scammer links it [...]

Facebook to start charging – spam spreading again.

By | July 5th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

No way! Since the beginning of this year there have been various rumours about Facebook charging as from August 2011. There have been groups started up and posts shared. This week we are seeing another type of  hoax viral message circulating Facebook that reads... This looks like the old chain mails you used to or maybe do still get reporting that Hotmail are going to start charging unless you forward the email, and of course if you forward, you won't get charged.  Yeah right.  Same thing here, its saying that if you share this message your icon will turn blue and Facebook will be free for you. This just wouldn't happen. There has been no reports that Facebook are going to charge, and in the Telegraph today it says that Facebook has denied claims that it has plans to charge. Besides after the launch of Google+ this would be a very silly time to do it. Don't fall for it, and don't copy it and paste it as your status. Hope this helps Photo from - http://www.flickr.com/photos/mugsy/358778610/

By | January 9th, 2011|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , |

Due to a now viral message, everyone now believes that Facebook is closing down on 15th March? LOL Oh really? They've just got $500 million investment from Goldman Sachs and Digital Sky Technologies but that's not important right now,  apparently its all too much for Mark Zuckerberg and he's closing down. Its not a funfair at Hastings that hasn't been running well for 3 years... its not a Chip~Shop that started selling soggy chips... its not something that Yahoo got bored with... its FACEBOOK! Its all over the internet now, and of course its just..... a horrible hoax, a joke, a set of Chinese whispers, a ridiculous rumour.
