Facebook scam: Oops!!! There was a hidden camera in Justin bieber's bedroom

Scammers are once again using Justin Bieber's celebrity name to spread their nonsense on Facebook. This time, the claim is a camera filmed what Bieber did with Selena Gomez in his bedroom.

Facebook scammers are once again exploiting ignorant victims with claims that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez have been filmed on camera, this time in Bieber's bedroom. The story is false.

This version starts off with "Oops!!! There was a hidden camera in Justin bieber's bedroom" or "00ps!!! There was a hidden camera in Selena & bieber's bedroom" or "Oops!!! There was a hidden camera in Selena & bieber's bedroom" followed by a fraudulent link. There is also a description titled "WOW HaHa it's really so funny ~ Don't Miss it!" or "HaHa it's really so funny – Don't Miss it!"

The link takes you to what appears to be a video embedded on what looks like a Facebook webpage. Both are fake. The scammers' goal is to drive more traffic towards certain sites. This is how the scammer earns his or her money: a commission for every survey completed, every product purchased, and/or every account compromised. You're also told to share the link with all of your Facebook friends, as well as add a comment. The next webpage urges you to sign up for a premium rate mobile phone service, complete an online survey, and/or buy some pills. Last but not least, they also use the scams to spread malware and obtain personal information.

As a general word of caution, don't click on everything your Facebook friends share on the social network. If you see a scam like this one, report it. Then go check your own Wall to make sure you're not spreading the scam; the sooner you clean it up and Unlike any relevant Pages, the better. You can also contact Facebook Security if you'd like to.
