Beware of Facebook Like Farming Scams

Beware of deceitful Facebook users who are posting pictures of sick, starving, dead and injured children, adults or animals on Facebook, to trick other Facebook users into commenting on them by typing “Amen,” in order to make them popular. This type of activity is another type of Facebook Like Farming scams. The heartless and deceitful people who are tricking Facebook users into typing “Amen” are only taking advantage of caring Facebook users, who think they are helping out, by playing with their consciences.

Facebook Like Farming ScamsIt is important to remember that commenting on fake Facebook posts will only help to make the posts popular, which the owners, mostly scammers, will sell to rogue online marketing companies or other scammers, with the publicly available information of all the Facebook users who commented on them. Once spammers and rogue online marketing companies have received Facebook users’ information, they will start sending them hundreds of spam or unsolicted messages, and may even send them phishing or malicious messages.

The messages below are just some of the few used by deceitful Facebook users to trick other Facebook users into commenting on their fake posts:

  • “don’t scroll without typing amen.”
  • “if you woke up this morning and your thankful every day while being bless scroll down and type amen”
  • “how many likes can she get?”
  • “this baby still cute, scroll if your heartless”
  • “ignore if your heartless”
  • “keep scrolling if your heartless”
  • “Ignore If You Have No Heart”
  • “PLEASE DONT IGNORE”
  • “Don’t scroll without saying R.I.P”
  • “This is so sad type AMEN and lets see how many amen’s and likes he can get”
  • “Don’t scroll without showing respect”
  • “Please don’t scroll down without saying “Amen”
  • “Don’t Press Watch Without Typing Amen”
  • “1 like = 1000 prayers Don’t scroll without typing amen”
  • “Would You Save Your Mother? Type Yes Ignore NO”
  • “Do you trust in prayers? If yes so please pray for this baby take a minute and type “Amen” your one amen is one pray if you don’t love children so you can skip this”

Also, if you have received a message stating Facebook will donate money to a child if you like, share or comment on some content, please do not follow the instructions in the message, instead, report it to Facebook. And, if you have already commented on Facebook posts with sick, starving and injured children, adults or animals that you are not able to determine the legitimacy of, here are some instructions on how to remove those posts from your Facebook Wall and Timeline.
