Facebook is a social network phenomena used widely by a vast number of people on a daily basis. Many users of this social network had already experienced some form of fraudulent activity in one way or the other. Even if the fraudsters aren’t trying to gain any money directly from you, they can still use you to their benefit in other more sophisticated ways. One of the most obvious ways to do so is promoting websites or products on Facebook without your consent or knowledge. These people earn real money for advertising services that they provide to companies whose products or websites they promote. The outcomes of such activities are likes of pages that you have never heard off nor clicked ‘like’ but they still appear on your profile page.
Usually such fraudsters create fake web sites. The names of such web sites are not known to anyone, normally just a random word followed by .NET, .COM etc. domain name. They tend to use non English language in their websites as then English speaking people are unable to assess the content of such malicious websites.
