There doesn’t seem to be an end to the spam on Facebook. Scammers are getting wiser by the day with new hacks to trick innocent Facebookers. Unfortunately, the Facebook engineers just don’t seem to care (or capable) to end this menace. The latest one making rounds asks you to “Verify My Account” in order to Prevent Spam! Ironical, isn’t it?
“In order to PREVENT SPAM, I ask that you VERIFY YOUR ACCOUNT. Click VERIFY MY ACCOUNT right next to comment below to start the process…”
Assuming you haven’t fallen prey to this spam, ensure that you DON’T click on the link and better still, share this post with your other friends! In case you have already fallen for this trick, apologize to your friends, remove the postings on the walls of your friends (as much as you can) and alert them not to click it themselves.
I foresee Facebook going the Orkut way – more spammers than genuine users!
