Now a days Scammer are being more genius and they are using networking site for their attacking spot. There is a new type of 'Scam' in Facebook which might Embarrass you among your friends and relative. So be careful while using Facebook.
Yesturday I have noticed one of my friend were victimof this Facebook Scam. This kind of scam work like this
When you open some page or some groups in Facebook there is a 'pop-up' message saying somethings like this 'You land on a unsuspecting Facebook page ' and it also ask you to conform that you are an adult in order to view the underlying content. When you click conform the dialog disappears.
The main problem is that 'pop-up' you have just clicked was not actually a pop-up message but it was some hidden script that executed itself as soon as you hit the conformed button. In most case the hidden scrip will automatically post a link in your Facebook wall saying you have just tried visiting an 'adult' site. This will almost creat a viral effect because now your other friends will be eager to see that page and some of them might fall in the trap as as well. So be careful while using facebook and its better to close the page or report Facebook if such scam appears.
