Sophos Security is warning Facebook users about a scam in which you will be charged $5 a week on your cell phone account without your knowledge. The click jacking worm tricks users into sharing their information without the user being aware what is being done. The scammers use the following screen to trick the user:
Once the user clicks on the ‘next’ button the script is activated without the user suspecting anything is wrong. Behind the scenes is a screen in which you ask to take a survey. But it is this agreement that many will not read that tricks the user:
Once you agree to the terms and provide your cell number, the $5 a week is added to your cell phone charges. If you fall victim to this scam, Sophos recommends you remove the item from your profile.
Be careful out there. The crooks never sleep.
