in Software Update Scam by Scam Alert Editor

This is a fake software update scam that is pushed on people by scammers that buy ads on Facebook.

Here’s how this scam works:

  • Scammers build a website full of eye-candy
  • Scammer buy ads on Facebook
  • You get scammed

So, here the ad they use to suck you in:

scam software upgrade

I’d say this ad is aimed at men.

So, as a matter of…research…we clicked on the add. is pure scam bait.

Basically, once you click though about 3 of the pictures, you are faced with this:

scam software update

IF you click “Accept and Install” you’ll have installed the scam software.

Yet, before you have a chance to click it you’ll see this window.


So DO NOT click start download.  Do click the red X.

It is a shame Facebook doesn’t ban advertisers that do this.
