Facebook's popularity has grown to Global proportions, so it is not too surprising the scammers and spammers are hitting the social site hard.

The latest scam involves a fake video clip with various versions of the same title, which claims to be video of a girl being caught by her Dad while stripping in front of her webcam.

In reality, there is no such video and if/when one clicks on a link to "download" said video, all one will get is a nasty virus...DO NOT attempt to download the video file!!

When you click on the link provided in the scam message, it will hijack your Facebook account. If you do come across this scam message, delete it from your Facebook news feed immediately.

Agreed Dave. The scammers are very clever though, they do employ enticing terminology.
