    Ok, was on FB and saw someones status as:

    "32 people have viewed my profile today.
    Male: 25
    Female: 7
    Click here to see your results:
    https://bitly.com/vzCe9V"


    So I clicked like a dumbass...

    And low and behold a content locker... Designed as a FB alert message, nice touch.

    Then when trying to exit the page, another alert gives the old.. you won blah blah...

    Then I had to go and delete the automatic update!


    Just thought I'd share.. anyone seen this before? Or is is old news? (for me it's new)

    Not bad 3,635 clicks these type of things seem to spread like wildfire on facebook.

    I usually have people on mine saying don't click this it's fake etc.

    Always makes me laugh as people don't even realise what cpa stuff is.

    Facebook is too easy to compromise. People seem to just take advantage.

    There was stuff going around of disgusting pictures not long ago, it was horrible.

    Yes, I remember those as well. I got some disgusting ones with Arabian chicks and their "glorias" right in my face. Pretty disturbing...

    You follow whatever steps they ask you to and it will spam your wall and friends etc (depending on the version of the script it may also create a page, event, send messages to friends on chat), then it redirects you to the content which is protected by a content locker - in order to view the content you need to complete some sort of survey or download. The owner gets money for this.

    This is quite a basic script, there are far more complex ones going round (just search 'Profile views' on facebook to see what's being published lol).

    PM me if you need help or any scripts - I've got em all ;)

    A content locker comes up with a CPA, if you don't know, go look at shar3cash. :)
