See where the arrow is pointed in the image below. This means that the post is not a normal post BUT the poster is actually PAYING so that Facebook can Promote the post.
It increases their distribution area and reaches much more users than what a normal post would reach.
Social media were flooded with False News Posts (see image below with red arrows) claiming that Oscar Pistorius were shot dead.
These cheap-skate scammers makes it more and more difficult for Facebook users to know the difference between a SCAM POST or a REAL POST.
By looking closer, you will see in the Image below, that the scammers used the names of well-known News Websites, Timeslive.co.za and News24.com.
The result of this is that many people see the post, and the moment they see that the post was made by Timeslive or News24, they click on it.
We have checked the developers coding off the website (scammers website). The main and only objective is the get visitors to their website in the hope that people will click on their advertisers links.
By click on any of the links on this website, gives their advertisers a click and the scammers are getting paid per click.
In this specific case, NO, they can’t. They do not have any malware, phishing coding on their website. On the other hand, if you comment, share, like or use any of the other Facebook Reactions on their posts, then they have you in their “database” and they might start spamming you directly in the future.
Best is, NOT to comment or interact in any way. Report the post to Facebook if you really want to do something, or inform News, Accidents, Robberies & Incidents about the posts, AND WE WOULD GLADLY X-POSE THEM!
