Switch to Pink Facebook Hoax Spreading Fast

Message appearing on Facebook claiming to change your Facebook Pink, is a survey scam

There are ways to switch to a Pink Facebook using Chrome which you can Google for but there is a link spreading on Facebook at the moment, which is a hoax.

Title – Switch to Pink Facebook (Limited Time)

The link here is the same as all survey scams – when you click it, it spams all of your friends facebook walls telling them of the good news, that you have a pink facebook, which you don’t realise until its too late.

You are asked to first fill in a survey for verification but of course, nothing happens, they now have lots of information from you and the scammers have been paid for their efforts in scamming you.

If you see this on your wall delete it, and tell the person to inform followers that it is a scam, and follow these instructions to remove a facebook scam.

Always check out suspicious links before clicking it, IF IN DOUBT DON’T CLICK !

Update : There are now other scams – asking you click the link to get Black Facebook – Blue Facebook, and probably rainbow Facebook – as I said these are fake. There are ways to change the background and ways to get colours in chrome but I’d search on Google for those if I were you.

Hope this helps

 

 

Facebook Gold Membership Hoax


The Gold Membership hoax could now cost money!  Fake “where to pay” sites are appearing.

Facebook users have been warned that facebook charging scams  like this are circulating, they are FAKE.  However people are still sharing these things –  I’ve seen facebook pages and messages with a link to a website to pay your money – don’t click it, and certainly don’t pay its bogus!

This one went viral really quickly …

Facebook have said themselves they have no intention of charging.

Being shared right now – I believe it is supposed to be a joke as it is very funny but people are taking it seriously.

Remember Facebook makes it money through advertising, and with new facebook there will be even more advertising, they do not need us to pay.

Don’t help the scammers scam others and just don’t repost or share for them.

Hope this helps…
