**Share & Like To Spread This Warning**

Facebook users should be on the lookout for a post that claims you can see how many hours you have spent on Facebook. (Example Below.) If you get drawn in by the bogus message you will end up being led to a Facebook Fan page that forces you to like it and install a Facebook application. The Facebook Application is is a fake. It creates a message that displays nothing more then random numbers, which it claims to be the number of hours you have spent on Facebook. It also uses the permissions you granted it to post to your wall without your knowledge. While the application is posting the bogus message to your friends, behind your back, you are led to a Profile Spy Scam. Please see the examples included below.
