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:
I’d say this ad is aimed at men.
So, as a matter of…research…we clicked on the add.
POPNOMNOM.com is pure scam bait.
Basically, once you click though about 3 of the pictures, you are faced with this:
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.
