Face book users have been hit by one more fast-spreading scam today, pretend to be a link to a You Tube video that they have been tagged in. The scam messages use potential victims’ first names, claiming that they have been tagged in the “You Tube” video.
Phrases used in the attack include:
- YO [name] why are you tagged in this video
- WT F!! [Name] why are you tagged in this video
- Hey [name] i can’t believe you’re tagged in this video
- Hey [name] you look so stupid in this video
- Omg! [Name] why are you tagged in this vid
- OMG [name] why are you in this video
Each “video” has a haphazard number of view and like, but the span of the movie forever appears to be 2:34. Eagle-eyed Face book users might appreciate astonishing is awry when they see that the links refer to “YouTube” somewhat than the rather more accurate “YouTube”.
