By now we’ve all become waryof posts like this one on Facebook: “Costco is currently giving away $100.00 gift cards to all Facebook users!’
Alas, as of this writing, a bogus Costco gift card scam was live on Facebook.
We have no doubt that the social network’s immune system will detect the web address that the latest posts include and add the URLs to the security databases.
Just when you think Facebook has blocked every possible link to a particular scam meme, it returns with another web address. Southwest Airlines isn’t giving away 973 pairs of free tickets on the social network, and by now most people have learned that promises to that effect only lead to malware and spam.
