WATCH OUT: This Fake Facebook "Video Call" App Will Scam You

Since Facebook introduced its video call feature, it didn’t take long for scammers to take advantage, the good people at Naked Security found out.

The way it works isn’t that it actually uses the video call feature, but pretends to be an app that will let you access it. It says something like “click me to start video calling” and once you connect to it with your Facebook credentials it starts spamming you and your friends with links to affiliate scam sites. 

There are worse things that could happen, but watch out for this one. The Facebook video calling feature is new, so a few people are bound to fall for it.
