Another Facebook scam is at large and reported to be affecting thousand of users. The scam is posted on Walls and read:  “OMG OMG OMG… I cant believe this actually works! Now you really can see who viewed your profile!” Once a users fall for the trick, the victim will be redirected to a different page which will ask for access on the user’s Facebook pages. Upon permission of the user, the scam will spam other Facebook users and not provide the information of who viewed the user’s profile.
