[Warning] ANOTHER Bogus Facebook Link

This one just popped-up in the Feed a few minutes ago.  Its title is “Yeahh!! It happens on Live Television!”  Ironically enough, it’s women that are clicking on this post too, not men.  😀

This one redirects you to a fake Facebook page…

It then asks you to “Click Jaa twice to confirm”…

Click Jaa twice
"Click Jaa twice" - Are you kidding me? 😀 | Click to Enlarge

I mean, you should’ve already been able to tell this was a bogus post right away.  The website weebly[.]com lets anyone create a website, so someone signed up for videovideo1[.]weebly[.]com.  It’ just like anyone can sign up at BlogSpot or WordPress.  Asking people to click ‘Jaa’ not once, but twice – are you joking?  Is that some form of new security measure – click twice?  Sadly enough, it works for X amount of people.

You know the story…install Firefox, install NoScript, use ESET Nod32 Antivirus, blah, blah, blah.  😀

I must sound like a broken record!

UPDATE 6/23/2011

It looks like they’ve moved their crappy little pages over to a different site.  The same scam post from yesterday, is showing up with a new URL…

Same virus as yesterday, same bogus picture, just a new URL and a new title.

I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 15 years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale storeo-wners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage over 400 computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
