4. You Clicked On A Post With One Of These 5 Common Facebook Scam Phrases
"Is this you?" ranks as one of the most frequently used scam catchphrases, according to Bitdefender. Other phrases include, "What are you doing in this video?" "Find out who is doing x to you," "When after I saw this…" and "I just found out x about me. Check yours." Many of the phrases are also regularly used on other social networks to lure people to click on malicious links, Bitdefender said. Catchphrases changed often in 2012 in order to evade detection, Cosoi said, but many of the latest threats are attempting to reuse older ones.
