Not everyone is a fan of Facebook’s Timeline feature. And that’s a fact of which spammers and scammers are happy to take advantage.
Take this spam message received by a reader, for instance.
You wanna get rid of Facebook Timeline?
It is very easy to accomplish this. Install the addon then get rid of the Time Line.
[I wanna get rid of it now.]
If you click on the link you are taken to a website created just a couple of days ago, whose domain is registered in Turkey.
If you take a look at the website, you’ll see that it encourages you to install a Firefox or Chrome add-on to remove the Facebook Timeline from your account.
What’s that? You never check the small-print before installing software on your computer? Shame on you..
“If you are not living in Turkey don’t use this plugin, this is for only users who living in Turkey.”
Hmm.. My advice would be to avoid installing this software. And that’s even before malware researchers have analysed the suspicious plugins!
Make sure that you keep informed about the latest scams spreading fast across Facebook and other internet attacks.
