Exclamation Beware of Spam!

Although I have deleted the spam thread VenusinAries originally posted this article on, I would like to create another thread to share this with the community:

Re: Beware of Spam!

The methods of spreading spam are getting very clever.

On face book, if you agreed to let a 3rd party access your account, there might be a chance that you've allowed spammers to use your account. This happens a lot because when people play games or take quizzes through face book, you check an agreement so that the 3rd party app can post your statistics and interaction with them on your wall/share them to other walls.

If you have gotten those messages on face book that says "Hey, are you mad?" and then they suddenly post a cryptic link, clicking those links will probably let a 3rd party access your account so they can take over and send messages to other people. Then the cycle goes on.
One of the people I've added sent everyone on their friends list a video with a provocative title so everyone could click it, and once it was clicked it will access your account and make your account post the spam.

I'm not sure if it's only the 3rd party apps or if there's some virus that does it actually, but that's what I can think of right now. It's not happening only on face book, but other social apps too.

Re: Beware of Spam!

I don't mind the spam in my spam mail folder since I could easily delete them.
I do mind the spam in my inbox, though.
They are just plain annoying.

Re: Beware of Spam!

There is someone that send spam pms!
He invite you to a chat where noone (except one how claims to be astrologer) knows about astrology and there is a gay Moderator that is talking about his sexual parteners all the time...swears and offend members! This is how the chat operates mainly.
Please be careful !
Thank the moderator of the forum that banned them in order to not invite members and then swear to them and offend them.
