Facebook and Twitter users targeted with same scam
A Starbucks-themed scam has been spotted targeting users of both Facebook and Twitter users and it does so not via messages sent from compromised accounts, but through spam emails.
The emails tout Starbucks cards for free coffee and provide a link. When the victim follows it, he is faced with the following page (or the "Facebook" equivalent - "Share" instead of "Tweet"):
Once the user has done what was asked of him, he is able to click on the "Claim My Gift" button. Now he is faced with the option of trying one of three mobile apps. Whichever app he selects, he is taken to a survey scam site which, according to Trend Micro researchers, has been used heavily in past attacks.
