Amy Winehouse death video scams on Facebook

 Today Amy Winehouse has been found dead, and scammers are already taking advantage by posting scam/spam posts on Facebook. What are they posting on Facebook you may ask? Here are some of the scams/spam posts going around I have found:

 The Reason Amy Winehouse is Dead see the video: Bad link

 The Amy Winehosue Death Video RELEASED warning: may be upsetting (bad link)

 The links lead to random domains such as this (don't worry that link just leads to WOT) one where you will be asked to take a survey to make the scammers some cash. Watch out for scams like these when events like this happens. If you see this post (or posts like it) on your friends wall warn them that it is a scam.
