FarmVille Scam Alert: Helping Blu reward is another fake

FarmVille Pagoda Scam
Yet another scam has breached FarmVille News Feeds, so you have to imagine folks are somehow making a living off of this. FarmVille Freak has found a post circulating Facebook that reads, "Has claimed their reward gift for helping Blu learn to fly on the China Pagoda." We know, it already sounds ridiculous. The link claims to lead to a free China Pagoda, and old FarmVille item, but redirects you to what appears to be a 7-11 Facebook page offering free Farm Cash for "Likes." Whatever you do, please don't click on that "Like" button and spread this potential malware further. In fact, warn your friends and protect their data, especially the one who inadvertently posted the link on your News Feed.
