Justin Bieber stabbed by a crazed fan outside of a nightclub has been spread around Facebook the past week, but it’s a hoax and not true.
Normally, death hoaxes are spread around on Twitter, not Facebook, but this one about Justin Bieber stabbed is a scam. Once you click on the link which is accompanied by a horrific picture of a slashed back, it takes you to another page that asks you to filled out a survey and looks like YouTube.
Each survey that is filled out, the scammers will make money from. You can clean up your newsfeed on Facebook and remove such posts by clicking the “x” in the top right corner of the post you want to delete.
As best said by Facecrooks, “Never complete surveys to unlock videos or other content on Facebook. Scammers use these tricks to either spread malware, obtain personal identification or earn commissions from marketing companies. Don’t pad their pocket and possibly open yourself up to harm!
Some of the surveys require you to download files to your computer. Never do this! If you did so in error, then run a complete system scan with a good anti-virus software program. The I.Q. Quiz scam has been around for a while, and it typically requires you to enter your cell phone number to receive the results. The scammers then bill you for premium services. Keep an eye on your phone bill for bogus charges.”
