A familiar clickjacking scam has returned to Facebook. Users should beware of shared-link postings entitled "Girl-Killed-Herself-on-Halloween-After-Dad-Posted-This-on-Her-Wall."
The viral postings look like this:
If you click on the link you're offered an opportunity to view a video about the suicide, but only after taking the further step of clicking a "Share" button, which causes the bogus message to be posted to all your friends' Facebook pages (which is how the scam spreads).
There is no video, by the way. Once you've shared the link you're diverted to a survey page (which is how the scammers make their money).
So, if a message like this pops up in your newsfeed, don't click on the link. If you already clicked on it, don't waste time feeling regretful and embarrassed. Delete the message immediately to minimize its further spread. Then explain what happened to your friends.
A note on the image:
Adding insult to injury, the face of the purported "suicide victim" in the thumbnail image used in the scam posting is actually that of Neda Agha-Soltan, the young woman whose shooting death was captured on video during the Iranian election protests of 2009.
