FarmVille Scam: No free Cash Cows are being given away

Cash Cow
We feel like the Scambusters around here with the number of FarmVille wall post scams that have been flying in from all directions. The latest one is the Cash Cow wall post, in which the title of the wall post says "Awesome Cashcow", and the post claims to give out a cow that gives out 9 Farm Cash every hour. It generally says that it is a limited edition item with only X minutes remaining. The application comes from "The Mystery Egg", which is one way to know that it is a complete scam.

Also, do you really think Zynga would release a cow that allows you to harvest 9 Farm Cash an hour? This doesn't seem reasonable or possible at all. If it's too good to be true, it definitely is. Many of these scams will lead you into pyramid schemes, and many can even install malware or lead you to malicious sites. Be very careful and double check that the application is the real FarmVille before clicking on any wall post.
