FarmVille Scam Alert: White Kitten News Feed posts are not real
Read Full Story
scammers have to be turning some type of profit to brew up a new scam almost daily. This time, FarmVille Freak reports
that News Feed posts offering a free "White Kitten" are circulating through Facebook. Like all other scam posts, this is not an official offer from Zynga
, thereby making it fake and a potential source for nasty malware. So, should you and yours fall for one of these scams, we recommend changing your password and running a virus scanner. Also, please do spread the word, because we're kind of getting sick of writing these up. However, we really should turn this into a game show, no? Sure, you could just take every relatively new item or animal in FarmVille, place them on a wheel, and spin it to predict which one becomes the next scam. Throw in some social features and--boom
--Zynga's got their next big game.
