Here we go again, phony Facebook video comes through Twitter hack

By Robb Hicken/ BBB’s  chief storyteller

It starts like this – “What are you doign in the vidd,” and references a posting on Facebook.com and concludes with the LOLS.

There is not a video of you on Facebook somewhere. It’s a scam to get your personal information.

This is not a real posting, and it’s not from a real twitter.  It’s got all indication that it is from someone you know, or trust. The address is real, and when you click on message to @larry, it tells you that you can’t send a message to someone who is not following you.

If you click-through the link, you are taken somewhere where your Twitter account will be hacked, someone will download malware/spyware on your computer or device, or you will be phished to death!

DO NOT fall for this repeat scam.
