A currently spreading Facebook scam is exploiting the morbid curiousness of some, enticing the social networking crowd into clicking on a virally spreading fake video link, ZDNet reports.

Users who clicked on the “Photographer commited SUICIDE 3 days after shooting THIS video” link were redirected to a fake Facebook screen, where they were asked to double click on the “Jaa“ link to pass a bogus age verification test.

Once users clicks on the link, they will post a link to the bogus video on their wall and further spread the scam.

“The reason [scammers] want you to do that is so that you will drive more traffic towards their online surveys – the scammers earn money the more people who complete these, and maybe you or your friends will be tempted to spend some time answering questions in the belief that you will see a morbid video at the end of it,” writes Graham Cluley on the NakedSecurity blog.
