There has been a number of spam posts and messages that try and trick users into taking surveys that earn commission for the perpetrators. It will usually take the form of a message/post that requires you to either grant access to a third party application or clicking the "Like" button of a fake account, in order for you to be able to view or access the story. This will normally grant the perpetrators access to your friends/contacts list so they can then continue to spread the spam to your friends list, but making it look like you have sent it, in an effort to give the message some level of credibility.
As there has been a number of them recently, and some resurface again after a period of time has passed, I thought it may be better to contain them in the one thread to make it easier to identify them and offer a single point of reference for those members who are not sure, or think a message that they have received maybe just such a ploy to get them involved in this fake survey scam.
They will be posted in this thread as and when I or anyone else comes across them, please feel free to warn others in this thread if you yourself come across any more that aren't listed or mentioned here
