Just thought I’d share this piece from the Hoax-Slayer website (great site to visit often, in my opinion) which basically confirms everything I said in my previous article on here. It’s good to know I wasn’t giving you false information! 

Other things to look out for, which I hadn’t mentioned previously are:

  • the sensationalist videos, like one purportedly showing a snake which has eaten a man
  • the enticing videos, like those purportedly showing celebrities flashing parts of their body
  • the desperate videos, where people are going to be in distress and need your help

All of these are deliberately crafted to get you to click on the initial link. From there, who can tell what you’ll be persuaded to do…
