There’s a Dangerous Scam Lurking on Facebook and Here’s How to Avoid It!

I’m sure you’ve seen them on your Facebook feeds before, photos of a young toddler with some sort of disease, sickness, or even cancer. The photos are so devastating, that it tugs at your heartstrings. You can’t ignore it. And there’s usually a caption beside it that says “This little baby has cancer and he needs money for surgery. Facebook has decided to help by giving 1 Like = 2 dollars, 1 Comment = 4 dollars, 1 share = 8 dollars. Please don’t scroll down without typing Amen.”

I’m sure you probably doubt that post’s authenticity, but with thousands of likes, shares, and comments you figure it might be real. After all, everyone else is doing it, right? So why shouldn’t you?
