Windows 7: Facebook Scammers Trick Women with Free Makeup Promises

Facebook Scammers Trick Women with Free Makeup Promises

Quote:
A new survey scam is rapidly spreading on Facebook by tricking women into giving a rogue app access to their profiles with promises of free makeup.

The rogue messages posted from the accounts of users that have already been compromised read "anyone want some free makeup? ive just ordered mine for free and i thought i would post it here before the offer runs out. its stuff like mac, maybeline, estee lauder etc! The site is: [link]"

The link takes female users to an external page promising free mascara, foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner and other products that would probably be of interest to them.

The scammers even try to ease the visitors' minds about privacy by writing "We do not ask for your email address or password, just your basic information such as country, gender, etc., so we can target the freebies to you and you can let your friends know."

Jan,
I am upset!
I wait by the window for hours hoping UPS or Fed X will show up with my eyeliner and foundation make up kit.
What's a guy to do?

Just joking!

Well my heart bleeds for you.
A bloke deprived of his eyeliner is a sad state of affairs...
Perhaps Santa will take pity on you.
