SCAM ALERT: "Deadly Crash" Facebook Scam Spreads Virus
On Facebook, you might read about a horrific crash that killed “2 moms, 5 kids” and the “fathers had to be held back from the flames.”
Within the post, it stated that the crash happened on a "freeway" within Schuylkill County. Most people who read the post were tipped off at this point that the story was fake.
The story was posted by a relatively unknown Facebook page (we are not posting it's title because we don't want anyone to visit the page) but by Thursday morning, it had already been shared hundreds of times. Within the comments of the post, people had said their computers reported the site was trying to infect them with a virus.
