A post that reads, “OMG Kenya Moore Leaked Porsha Williams Sex tape Because of their brawl,” is nothing more than a scam.
The lurid claims are designed to trick users to click on the post. When they click on it, they’re taken to a bogus website that asks them to share it first before going further, which ensures that the scam is spread even more.
The post also claims to have a video and features a crude image with a play button over it. However, there is no video and it’s just part of the trick.
After that, users will be taken to a website that offers surveys for “free” items, but these are also fake. The surveys essentially are how the scammers make money.
“It is this fake Facebook web page that the scammers want you to ‘like’ or share, which will make it popular. Once the page is popular, these scammers can sell it to online marketers or other scammers. They will also make money from the surveys that are completed by gullible Facebook users who were tricked into completing them,” says security blog Online Threat Alerts.
It recommends that users “un-like” and delete the post from their wall if they’ve shared it.
“If you are asked to share, ‘like’, complete surveys in order to view a video, picture or other content, is first sign that you are being tricked or scammed. You do not need to do any of these things in order to view any content on Facebook and the rest of the internet,” the blog advises.
