[News] Facebook Scam Offers A Free Amazon Gift Card, Don't Fall For It! [News] Yet another Facebook scam has been revealed this weekend, and this one is a really tempting one.

Speedy weight loss is something many people are looking for, and this specific scam is using a very popular diet – the HCG diet. The new scam reads something along the lines of “I’ve lost 10 pounds in just one week all thanks to HCG!” and a link for you to click. There are other versions of it going around, but you get the gist. Whether or not you can actually lose all this weight with HCG is not the point, because the link has nothing at all to do with it.

So what is it about? The usual thing. If you click on the link you will be told to share it with all your friends, add a favorable comment, and will then be promptly redirected to some website that tries to sell you something unrelated or get you to fill a survey. These Facebook scams exist to drive more traffic to the scammer’s websites, preferably while earning some of your money on the way. So please, don’t fall for it. And if you see your friends sharing something similar, do let them know they’re endangering everyone, and get them to remove the post from their wall.
