When we find useful information, we like to share it. This week’s blog is excerpted from the Identity Theft Resource Center and written by the Social Media Coordinator Nikki Junker. The scam is based on that much loved “like” on Facebook. It’s the way users showed they supported anything from a bagel shop to the fact that their aunt just bought a new car. Then with the invention of the “like” came the burning desire of users to be able to dislike something. Thus the mythical “dislike” button was born. There were so many questions and rumors surrounding whether or not Facebook would allow users to express their discontent for their friends’ relationship status change from “in a relationship” to “single”.
You should always be careful about any link you click on and Facebook’s security has done a good job of cutting down on scams. However, you can be extra sure that if you click on anything regarding the “dislike” button you are in for a nasty surprise.
