FACEBOOK SCAM: 'Justin Bieber Stabbed by Crazed Fan' Video

By December 9, 2011

Follow me on:

Justin Bieber STABBED By CRAZED Fan Outside L.A. NightClub!
Yet another survey scam. The links in these postings supposedly go to a video titled "Justin Bieber STABBED By CRAZED Fan Outside L.A. NightClub!" Users who click on them are asked to share the links in order to view the video, but in fact no such video exists. After spamming all their Facebook friends, gullible users are redirected to an online survey page.

Why? Graham Cluley of Sophos.com explains: "The scammers earn commission for every survey they manage to trick users into taking. They are only using the claim that Justin Bieber has been stabbed to try to lure as many people as possible into spreading their link, and taking their money-making surveys."

Think before you click!
