Facebook Scam Has Got Your Number
The scam offers 1,000 free iPhones.
If a Facebook message offering a free iPhone 4 seems too good to be true, security experts warn that it absolutely is.
The security company Sophos has noticed a new spam campaign spreading through Facebook with the title, "Apple is giving away 1000 IPhone4s i just got mines =)."
The link accompanying the message takes users to a site advertising a "Home Income Profit Kit," a work-from-home money-making scheme.
Though Facebook spam is nothing new, Sophos noted that unlike other campaigns, these messages are appearing directly on users' walls, which means the spammers are most likely exploiting a flaw in the Facebook feature that allows users to remotely post updates to their pages.
