Facebook “Dislike Button” Scam

If you are on Facebook you have seen the “Like” button underneath users’s post, which is a cute way to let people know that you agree with or “like” what they said, without having to post a comment. For years, people have been saying that they should also have a “Dislike” button, so many Facebook users eagerly download a recent program that said it loaded the new “Dislike” button to your profile.

This program will ask you to download an application, which then brings up several surveys asking for personal information, and in the end you do get a “Dislike” button but you are also automatically signed up for a $5 per month cell phone charge.

Here is a link to a video report on this scam
