New Facebook Scam -“Copyright Violation” message, supposedly from the Facebook Support Team. It deamands the Facebook users to click on a link to verify the page and also warns that failure to verify the link within 48 hours may result in suspension of their Facebook account.

Clicking the link takes the users to a Facebook app page with a bogus form seeking the Facebook login information, email and phone number. Once the information is given, the user receives a message that the verification process was completed successful.

However, the message is the work of scammers who have hijacked a Facebook account and used it to launch the scam. The message is certainly not from Facebook support and the copyright violations claim is just a ruse to trick you into clicking the link.

The following two tabs change content below.
