Generally when I come up with a news on this site then it is generally a security related issue. Even today I am going to discuss the same. We try our best to cover all the scams in Facebook and that is the reason we have already shared lot regarding it from time to time. These new scams on Facebook will again take you to a survey page which may even charge additional cost on your mobiles. In this post I will be telling about these new scams on Facebook and how these can trap you in.

All of these scams have one thing in common and that is the reason we have tried to cover them in a single post, they all are affiliated to FarmVilla (one of the popular games on Facebook). All of these scams will lure you by offering new rewards of that game and many of the users who love to play this game will tend to click those links in order to get that reward. But then it will end up to a survey page and posting wall posts on your wall and the wall of your fiends.

One of the scam links was stating that ‘[someone] claimed a free FarmVilla Fiordland Penguin after cracking open a Candy Cane Egg!’ after you click this link it will ask you a permission to access your wall and then it will post a wall post advertising their link on your wall and then it will ask you to fill up the survey form and they will claim that once you complete this survey you will be able to get that reward. If that survey is paid then they may deduct heavy amount from you mobile. So I will suggest you to stay away from all these scams which are running these days for FarmVilla.

Some of the scams which have been seen recently are like Icelandic Horse and Wolf Club. So, just stay away from them and if you happen to see them on your friends wall then please suggest them to remove it. Let us see that when Facebook will put up their hands to get rid of these spams.
