Gina Lisa Facebook scam



Yet another Facebook scam, this time luring users with a sextape from Gina Lisa, whom is apparently a German model:


Yet another Facebook scam: "Gina Lisa Sextape"


















Note I only covered up the profile name & profile picture of the user who posted this, the screenshot from the "video" itself is actually not edited. Not sure what it should be covering up there...

When you click on the link you get:
Verify your age first


















When you click on the video to "verify your age" you are redirected to what appears to be a site for gambling, pokergames, etc....:

Subscribe and get a free bonus. Looks legit
















I suspect you'll probably have to pay up sooner or later to continue playing. Stargames.com is apparently known for spamming blogs & other sites.

This scam and/or spam will also post on Facebook on your behalf. Go over your Privacy Settings on Facebook and make sure you delete this "app" if you see it. Remove any posts you have made as well and report posts similar as this made by your friend(s).



Prevention

Pretty straightforward: do not click on any of these links, how tempting they might be ! Ask your friend if he or she knows what it means, and slightly hover over the post until the 'X' becomes visible. You can then mark the post as spam, and it will be removed from your friend's wall.

It might also help to install the WOT extension into your browser. (Compatible with most modern browsers)
WOT is a community-based tool and is therefore very useful for these kinds of scams, whereas other users can warn you about the validity.

Conclusion
To keep it short and simple:
don't fall for these types of spam/scam, most of the times it's pretty obvious it's fake.
