You would think that such a huge social network like Facebook must have a stellar security system enabled and that you are very well protected. If you wouldn’t think so, you wouldn’t reveal so many details about yourself and you would definitely post fewer comments around. To know that Facebook doesn’t actually have such a strong security system would be a total image crash.
I am personally surprised by how many scams one can see on Facebook, these days, and how poorly the engineers from Facebook cope with them. If you recall, a “successful” Facebook scam was the one with free t-shirts. Now, another one seems to spread fear across Facebook users and pose real threats to the security of our accounts. Be aware of the Rollercoaster accident scam!
Rollercoaster Accident, a Dangerous Facebook Scam
If you see this scam on your friends’ profile, don’t hesitate and do contact the Facebook Security team. It’s better to prevent an accident and account breaching than only to be aware about it; help out others because, one day, it could be you the one in trouble and we could only imagine how clever these baits will get.
And it seems that this scam is a ghost from the past, as there are similar reports from the renowned Sophos security firm that date since April, last year. I fail to understand why this scam is still haunting the Facebook community, returning in a new version.
