Facebook users are being tricked into clicking a scam post that promises a ‘shocking video’ that will make your jaw drop in amazement, reports Hackread. You may have noticed in the past couple of days, a video which has been circulating around Facebook, one in line of the many similar “shocking“ or “you will never believe this“ videos and articles.

The latest addition to these scam videos is a “See What Happens To This Pregnant Lady” post, which you might already have seen circulating your feed. There’s nothing really shocking about the actual video. You can find it on YouTube and it does show a woman on a beach. However, there’s nothing about it that will change your perspective about life.

The scam running on Facebook, though, directs you to a fake Facebook page which then asks you to share the video before you are able to see it. Doing so, also reels in other unsuspecting and gullible fools who are present in your friends list.

With the video shared, you’re then directed to a fake YouTube page which then asks you to verify you’re human. You’re asked to enter personal information, and hence, begins the circulation of malware.

A post appeared recently on Facebook, one in line of the many similar “claim-to-be-shocking-you posts” features a pregnant lady at the beach, promising to amaze viewers upon clicking the “Play” icon, warning it to be revealing and disturbing, what happens instead is upon clicking, viewer is directed to a phony Facebook host page, where a pop up appears in front of you to share it on Facebook before you are able to see the video.

After you share the page, it insinuates the same to your friends, now another click will take you to another “YouTube” appearing scam page asking you to prove you are a human by clicking fake images. In the process you are then taken to another website demanding personal information, which will cause a series of anonymous fake scamming phone calls and annoying emails.

The best part of it all is the actual video, which can easily be found on YouTube. The video’s thumbnail does show a pregnant lady on the beach, but there’s absolutely nothing shocking or disturbing about an unborn child’s movement in the womb.

If you do come across the video on Facebook, know that you can still watch it by heading over to the actual YouTube video. Be smart, and stay away from links asking you to “Open” it.
