SPAM Alert: I had n0 idea u could see everyone who views your pr@file




In the past hour, we noticed a new Facebook application spam outbreak that comes in the form of following status message:

I had n0 idea u could see everyone who views your pr@file. You guys are gr@ss! http://bit.ly/******

The status update is sent out by Facebook applications that go by the names of “check who spy you”, “check who view u”, “check who spy” and alike. These hoax apps want you to believe they’ll  show you everyone who views your profile, but all they do when you enable them is automatically post the status update above to your wall, which includes a link to the offending application.

i had n0 idea u could see everyone who views your pr@file

The use of the @-symbol is an indication that Facebook has previously blocked a similar message, and that the app developer had to modify the message in order to get through the spam filters.

Share this article on Facebook to warn your friends about this new Facebook hoax.
