webnep.com.np facebook tracker scam
Referring to "IP Tracker System for Facebook by webnep.com.np", how is it possible to install a java program on your computer directly from the facebook app? I always thought that in order for scammers to "do their work", they had to direct facebook users away from facebook itself, and into a link that directs them to another website. In short, how is it possible for scammers to install malicious programs through facebook just by people visiting the facebook app?

Re: webnep.com.np facebook tracker scam

Usually it's done through a security hole in the web browser. A legitimate program/service/website will not (should not!) do anything or add anything to your computer without first requesting your permission.
Often times, this is done via the Facebook app either at Facebook, or if re-directed to a 3rd party (not facebook) webpage. The scammers might even request permission just like a legit app, and a large percentage of users will eagerly click "ok OK OKKK just dooo it!" in their feverish rush to get something that is too good to be true..

Scammers live and breed on internet user's greed, ignorance and just outright stupidity - don't be one of the sheep!

Re: Does TheProfileTracker.com work?

I'm not going to blow $40 and jepordize my credit card to find out if TheProfileTracker.com actually works, but i will note these observations:

  • TheProfileTracker.com claims to do what Facebook flat-out says is not allowed and not possible.  It IS possible that TheProfiletracker.com sets up a FAKE Facebook page (outside of Facebook) that you trick people into going to - this could work, but you have to fool everyone into think it's Facebook and smart/saavy Facebook users won't easily be tricked
  • I cant find any credible reviews outside of their own testimonials page stating that Theprofiletracker actually works
  • Their promotional video on YouTube looks like it was created by a retarded 9 year old and is so poorly done that the loud music is 10X louder than the narration - you cannot hear a single word they are trying to say
  • Comments on their youtube video are locked - usually you want all of your customers commenting about how great the product is.. right?  For some reason TheProfileTracker has decided to not allow anyone to post a comment
  • The customer service email address [email protected] gmail.com  is an Gmail account.  This does not look professional... or safe...

In this case I recommend that you weigh evidence and decide for yourself.. or if you have $40 to blow (wait, "on sale now!" for only $15!!) and aren't worried about your credit card getting 'jacked, you give it a try and we will post your review here.  We can even help you test it.

Re: Facebook Trackers - My Top 10 Stalkers

My Top 10 Stalkers appears to be just like most of the other "trackers" we've tested.
You must allow the app to have full access to your Facebook profile, give it permission to spam your friends, access and use your photos, make posts "for you", AND access your data at any time, whenever it wants, even when you are not using the app.. Once you do this, the first thing it does is spam your friends, spam your wall, and even upload a photo into your photo albums..

The app then forces you to fill out a bunch of surveys to make money for scammers..
