AARP: Fight Facebook Fraud, Don’t Click On Spammy Links

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Citing “an absolute flood of fraud on Facebook,” this article on AARP’s website points out that the problem with new scams is that they usually seem to come from people you know and trust. “Some of these scams simply lead to online surveys that pay the perpetrator for each respondent, but others can take you to pages that install viruses and malware on your computer. It’s up to Facebook users to understand what to avoid and how to keep up on the latest shenanigans.”
