Analysis:

Various posts doing rounds on Facebook show people with Disabilities, begging readers to share the post if they are not ashamed of the pictured. Some posts come with sensitive pictures of sick, starving or injured people (children, youngsters or old ones) or animals and request viewers to like or comment on Facebook, like saying Amen. The posts on Facebook mention that nobody likes the pictured people because they are disabled or injured and ask to share and make them popular. Although sensitive, these posts on Facebook are not facts, and are coming from Scammers!

The sensitive pictures and stories are not coming from the actual persons pictured. Unfortunately, the fake posts are being created by scammers, without the consent of the people pictured. Not the pictured people, the scammers’ aim is only to make themselves popular on the social networking site. Tricking the Facebook users into liking, commenting or sharing the sensitive pictures and stories will ultimately increase the fan base of the scammers. This is yet another form of like-farming scam we have seen in the past (see Related Stories section below).

Scammers design these sensitive posts on Facebook to exploit the attention of kind natured users. Once they increase their fan base, the scammers can send out spam, or deceive them by providing malicious links or fake products. Some even go on to request donations that go into the pockets of scammers. Stealing the pictures of disabled people and cashing in with ‘sensitive’ stories is definitely showing disregard to the people pictured; it must be condemned. The users who have fallen for these hoax stories can go their Facebook activity log and undo their liking, sharing or commenting on those scam posts. The posts can also be reported to Facebook as scam.

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax and Scam.
