No matter how fun and interesting (not to mention newsworthy) Facebook is, the said social networking site has indeed become a haven to a motley of threats, from scams, to nasty apps, to phishing pages. Users who spent much of their time in there would probably be familiar with wall posts from friends or other contacts cajoling them to “see who is stalking you.”
We found a new version of such a post lurking on Facebook recently. In all respects, this “Stalker Tracker” is the same as its predecessors, from the link to where users can find it to displaying (You guessed it) surveys:
What makes this one personal, thus extra special, is not much about hinting on an unnamed “ex” but the somewhat-exciting-if-not-freaking-horrible possibility of that certain someone checking out your profile. Clicking the link found at the bottom of the spam post eventually leads users to profilespyxs(dot)info.
What sets this survey scam apart from the rest of its kind is the way it presents the survey to users. The initial page looks normal:
…until a second splash window is displayed so it sits on top of the first one.
