Daily Social Scam Report (8-26-2011)

 Time for today's daily social scam report.

 First lets start off by warning you not to spread a hoax message. The message has been quickly going around the social network today:

WARNING!!! If you see anyone post a "May God always bless this kind person below
with peace, love and happiness", with your profile picture picture attached
below, and sent by your friend via Bold Text, PLEASE DO NOT CLICK "like" or
"SHARE". Ìt is a spyware and all of your info at FB will be copied and reused f
or bad purposes. It opens a new link. Please share this info.
  As reported on Facecrooks their is no major outbreak spreading that message and its just a hoax message. I highly recommend not reposting it.
  Get a Free NFL Jersey!
 Much like the "I love Subway" Facebook spam posts that were going around not to long ago (and my still popup every once in a while) new NFL themed offer ones may start to pop up. Facecrooks (One of my new favorite social scam research sites) already has a page up about the scam. I highly recommend you avoid it.
  WOW! I just got 2000 Facebook Credits for Free! And it worked too! No personal info required! 100% WORKING and totally free. Check it out, i got mine from (bad blogspot link)
 Facebook credit scams are normally found on the walls of social games. Some good news however is that Web of Trust is already detecting the site to be bad.
 Get A Free Dell XPS M1530 Now! 
  This one seems to be much like the free NFL one. The domain was once again owned by "Yes Survey Media" which I have see in the past being used for "sign up for these offers in order to get this object free. Dell would not give away products for free just like that so be on the lookout for these types of scams.
Early Warning: Watch out for Hurricane themed spam/scams.
  Since the Hurricane is about to hit the east coast of the USA be on the lookout for messages trying to take advantage of that. Scammers and Spammers always try to take advantage of big news stories like this
