A viral post that’s going around saying “IPhone Video – Rihanna and Chris Brown S xtape [Sextape] Leaked Today” is a Facebook scam trying to get users to fill out fake surveys.
The post, which shows a crude image with a play button over it, doesn’t actually contain a video.
“Chris brown is very angry on rihanna for not to take care of her iPhone,” the post also reads.
When one clicks on it, the user will be redirected to the website “fbnicki.altervista.org,” which looks similar to Facebook. The post requires the user to “like” or share it before viewing it.
After the post is shared, the page then displays online surveys that ask for one’s personal information. It’s not recommended to fill it out, as the scammers behind it will sell it to marketers or others to make money.
“It is this fake Facebook website 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,” reads a post from Online Threat Alerts, which has a photo of what the Facebook scam looks like.
If one has “liked” or shared the post, it’s recommended to delete all instances of 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,” Online Threat Alerts wrote.
Over the past two weeks, there’s also been another survey scam going around claiming that Rihanna was raped and killed. It also claims to have a video, but there is none.
