farmville scam is zynga to blame?

Over the Memorial Day weekend, we reported on a FarmVille player who was scammed out of $400. Here's how it went down: The player received an instant message from a FarmVille 'friend' (or someone she thought was a FarmVille friend), which contained a link.

Contrary to common sense, the victim clicked on the link, and -- wouldn't you know it -- the other party snagged all of her credit card information. Soon she was out $400.

What do you think? Is Zynga to blame in this case? Sound off in our Lunchtime Poll below:
