facebook thumbs down

Here we go again, another scam to watch out for this time its on Facebook.

According to CBS News, there's not just one scam but two to watch out for on Facebook. The names of two; "Secret Sister Gift Exchange" and the "Secret Wine Bottle Exchange".

These scams ask you to purchase a small gift or a bottle of wine and send it to one person participating in the "gift exchange" while also tagging friends who you think would like to participate. In exchange for participating, you'll get anywhere from 6 - 36 presents or bottles of wine. Basically, this is a Facebook period scheme. And instead of getting a bunch of cool gifts, what you'll be doing is giving away stuff to scammers while also giving out your home address. So, steer clear when you see these crop up on Facebook.
