As it appears, scammers recycle the hoax news and scams that they spread on Facebook by changing the names of the subject i.e celebrities and using the same “tragedy” plot.
After many Justin Bieber fans were fooled about a fake stabbing incident, a newer twist to the scam emerged on Facebook. This time, it tells of the famous rapper Eminem beaten and stabbed outside Detroit night club. Here is the hoax news as it appears on Facebook posts:
EMINEM STABBED By CRAZED Fan Outside L.A. NightClub!
â€“ OMG! NOOOO! Could YOU Even Imagine?!?
Be aware that this Eminem stabbing incident news is a hoax so do not help scammers spread this message. The best way to do this is by marking the posts as spam and not resharing the news via your timeline.
Hoax news online are often spread by scammers to get people to answer surveys and provide their personal information.
