Rogue Facebook Apps Brazenly Make You Do Their Dirty Work
First up is yet another mock IQ test app. This one lures you into its trap with a post on a friend's Wall that reads, "I'm never texting again." Clicking on the link embedded in the post leads to a page that instructs you to click on an image, and asks you to give the application access to your Facebook account so that you can watch a "shocking video." Agreeing will launch an IQ testing app that posts the same link on your Facebook profile, and then prompts you to add $10 a month to your cell phone bill for more IQ tests.
Check out the video scam in action below, and remember, there's nothing wrong with being a tad paranoid online. Don't click on, copy and paste, or agree to anything unless you're 100-percent positive it's safe. [From: AVG, via: The Guardian]
