Whitney Houston Scams
As usual when someone dies, the hackers, scammers, cyber criminals use it against us. They know we are weak, they know we are not paying attention. They know we are all fighting for new information or great tracks…
- What happened?
- Why did it happen?
- Is it true?
- What is going to happen?
- I love that song!
This is when they get us, when we are not thinking, we click a link and bam – its gone to all our friends and family saying its safe because you liked it.
There are even some going around that say they are going to show you Whitney’s autopsy really? You’d click that? Well I know some are so distraught they just need to know the facts.
The Autopsy one doesn’t take you to a YouTube link but says that flash needs to be updated, and you have to install.
Another one, takes you to a link to download Whitney wallpaper … woah!
Big Mistake – Huge!
You will be installing something very nasty!
Usually it will just take you to a survey site, which can be sorted out easily – but remember never ever put any information in these things. Never!
These are on Facebook and Twitter, and still going strong – although no reports on Google+ yet – hmm what does that tell you?
Remember, if in doubt, don’t click.
Hope this helps
