‘Ratchet Girl Pulled Out of Her Car in Mcdonald Drive Thru and Beat to Death’ Painful Video is a Scam

A viral Facebook post that reads, “{PAINFUL VIDEO} Ratchet Girl Pulled Out of Her Car in Mcdonald Drive Thru and Beat to Death” is nothing more than a clickjacking scam.

The post has an image of a girl fighting another person near a McDonald’s with a play button over it. However, there’s no video footage.

When a Facebook user clicks on the post, they’re redirected to a website that first asks them to share the post before going further–a sign that it’s a scam.

After that, they’re taken to a webpage outside of Facebook that has bogus videos.

Scammers behind the website try to get enough traffic to it before selling it to other scammers. After that, the page can contain bogus survey scams, malware, phishing attacks, or rogue Facebook apps.

It’s not recommended to “like” or share the post on Facebook.

“The scammers or cybercriminals behind this scam will change the website names and images, so watch out for similar scams with different website names and images,” reads a post from security blog Online Threat Alerts. “Once on the website, the victim will be asked to complete surveys or share the same website before he/she can view the video.”

It adds: “Cybercriminals are continuously sending out different Facebook video scams, so please do not complete surveys, share or ‘like’ a website in order to view a video.”
