If you want a basic piece of advice that can help you avoid nearly all spam, scams and potential viruses that could be spread through Facebook, then it's this - don't click on the "free" offers that you see in your feed or the quizzes and sweepstakes.

Mobile phone scams are on the rise but it’s not always easy to recognise fraudsters’ new tactics. There’s one mobile phone scam that has recently been catching out a large number of unsuspecting victims – it’s called the Wangiri scam. This tactic sees fraudsters dialling from an overseas number then immediately disconnecting the call in the hope that the target will ring back. Victims that do return the call are redirected through an International Premium Rate service, which can cost a fortune for every minute that the call is connected. Some of these calls remain connected - even once the unsuspecting person hangs up - resulting even more charges.
