It is currently not possible for you to view your friends inboxes on Facebook. Any page or app claiming to give you this ability will be a scam. Word to the wise: If you are looking to hack into parts of your friend’s Facebook accounts and are not a bonafide hacker you will likely end up getting hacked by someone looking to
“Pwn” (Own) wannabes..

The FBI is warning of a new internet scam called Reveton Ransomware


The FBI is warning of a new internet scam called “Reveton Ransomware”. Reveton Freezes Windows PCs, accuses the user of a crime, and then requests the user pay fines to unlock their computer. It is described as a drive-by malware attack because unlike many viruses, which activate when users open a file or attachment, this one can install itself when users simply click on a compromised website.

IC
3 suggests the following if you become a victim of the Reveton virus:

*Do not pay any money or provide any personal information.
*Contact a computer professional to remove Reveton and Citadel from your computer.
*Be aware that even if you are able to unfreeze your computer on your own, the malware may still operate in the background. Certain types of malware have been known to capture personal information such as user names, passwords, and credit card numbers through embedded keystroke logging programs.
*File a complaint and look for updates about the Reveton virus on the IC3 website.

Again I’m going to keep this real simple. See all of the EYE CATCHING, ($1000) free offers shown in the attached photo? Yes? Good, make sure you stay away from them. They are all scams. They request you share them with your friends, do fake surveys or had over your mobile number and other personal information. In return, you 

will receive nothing, but the scammer who created them will get paid for your insatiable urge to obtain a Free Lunch.

Malware ALERT – Fake AT&T Bill

**Share & Like To Spread This Alert**

Cyber-criminals are sending out emails containing bogus AT&T bills in the hopes you will think you forgot to pay your bill and rush into clicking a link which sends you NOT to AT&T, but to a website hosting a Blackhole exploit kit. This is a very high-quality scam, however it has 2 really noticeable red flags. One, the bil

l amount is ridiculously high and two, if you float your mouse over the main link in the mail, the target website is not AT&T.

If you receive this type of email do not click any of the links in it. Instead report the email as phishing and delete it immediately. As a general rule of thumb it is better to login to web accounts directly if you believe there is a problem with the account. Do not follow links in or reply to “Out-Of-Blue” emails.

Malware ALERT – Fake BBB Mail

**Share & Like To Spread This Alert**

Business owners and customers alike should be on guard for a scam that is using the Better Business Bureau | US‘s name to trick users into downloading malware on to their computers. The malware is designed to infect the user’s computer and look for information such as bank account numbers and passwords in order to steal mon

ey from the recipient’s accounts. The scam comes in two different versions. One which masquerades as follow up to a complaint filed with BBB, the other is asking for updated contact information “as a service to BBB Accredited Businesses.” Both are good fakes, using correct grammar and following BBB formatting. However, floating your mouse over the links offered in the emails reveal an address that does not belong to the Better Business Bureau.

If you receive these types of emails it is very important that you do not clink any of the links offered in them or reply to them. Instead forward the message to phishing@council.bbb.org then delete them immediately.

ATTENTION: Scam Artists are always looking for new Facebook accounts to take control of. Never respond to messages that appear to come from “Facebook Security” and state your account will be deactivated or terminated within 24 hours due to a TOS violation unless you “Verify” or “Re-Confirm” your account via a link. Fa
cebook Security does not send out these types of messages. Actually “Facebook Security” never messages users. You should only expect to receive a EMAIL message from a member of the “Facebook Team” if you have contacted them for support, FIRST.
