'Truth about Coca Cola' on Facebook: It's a scam


The "truth" about a new Facebook campaign purporting to reveal the "truth" about Coca Cola is this: it's a scam designed to pinch your personal information.

The digital security firm Sophos exposed the scam, which begins with the following message making the rounds on Facebook: "I am part of the 98.0% of people that are NEVER gonna drink Coca Cola again after this HORRIFIC video. Find out the TRUTH about Coke!!!"

Clicking on the video link takes you to a Web site claiming that "9/10 People said they WOULDNT drink Coca Cola After seeing this video!!!" above a video still that says "Coca Cola can't hide its crimes."
