How to see who viewed your profile!! Application in Facebook is a SCAM

I was surprised to received lots of invitation about the “How to see who viewed your profile!! “ , events in Facebook. Upon checking the script that they are asking to be copied, it will just give a random numbers about your views. Please be informed that it is not the real number but just a random numbers that the programmers has made.

I also found out that in order to verify your information , the program will ask you to finish a certain online quiz or online survey which will of course lead to tons of money to the account owner.They will earn in every completed survey.

So be very careful in accepting request and application in facebook.

The malicious script will run and will send request to your friend list.

I have also found out that they are using blogspot blogs and .info domains as their landing page.

So if you receive such request better to ignore and inform your friend that it is a SCAM.

Update :

The programmer uses the URL Shortener : http://x.co to hide it’s true identity.

It’s online visitors shows how viral is this SCAM :
