It was reported that at least 40,000 users were scammed recently on Facebook by a gift card scam! The scam promised to "give" you an Ikea gift card for $1000, all you have to do it fill out a "little" information.
Now, here is my question. Who in their right mind would beleive that Ikea or any other company for that matter, would give away such unlimited resources, and do so on Facebook?
Come on you 40,000 users!! Who are these people??!! If I ever see anything that says "free" on the internet, I am ALWAYS skeptical. In a James Earl Jones Voice-"Nothing in life is free, and if it is, you can guarantee that there is a catch," is what my dad use to tell me as a kid. Seems pretty obvious right?
Obviously not! Now these 40,000 users have no Ikea giftcard, but they do have a BRAND NEW virus or malware customized for their computer! YAY!
Good for you!!
Note: sorry if you were one of the 40,000 users but I am sure that you will now agree, it was a dumb decision. The picture above was just too hilarious not to include.
