A new scam is currently victimizing thousands of Facebook users.

Users have been receiving the said message from friends, including a link that asks to be clicked so the unknowing victims could “View” the photos. Once clicked, the user is brought to an application window, asking access to Facebook account information like the user’s name, gender, photo, network, lists of friends, as well as access to Facebook Chat.
