Switch to Pink Facebook’ Survey Scam

And again my friends are being scammed and spamming me with crap on Facebook

This message appearing on Facebook claims that users can switch the colour of their profile from blue to pink by clicking a link (yeah, lame and why do people fall for this stuff)

The post looks like this:

The message is a survey scam designed to trick users into spamming their friends and providing personal information via various third-party surveys or offers. Users are told that they must complete a survey as a means of verification. However, no matter how many surveys users complete, they will never receive the promised pink profile.

The scammers who create these schemes will earn commissions via suspect affiliate marketing systems each and every time a victim completes an offer or participates in a survey. Victims may also be faced with large phone bills for unwanted mobile phone services and, because they have provided name and contact details, they may be inundated with unwanted promotional emails, phone calls and junk mail.

If one of these spam messages appears on your wall, just delete it. Do not follow any links in such messages.
