    There’s a new scam on Facebook promising to show you a video revealing the “truth” about Coca-Cola, but all it’s really after is your personal info.

    The message reads: “I am part of the 98.0% of people that are NEVER gonna drink Coca Cola again after this HORRIFIC video,” followed by a link.

    If you click on the link, you’ll be asked to share the video seven times. However, the counter doesn’t work, so eventually you’ll be tempted to click on a link that says “Cant Be Bothered To Wait? –> Click Here To Skip This.”

    The second link takes you to a poll, which — you guessed it — is the central part of the scam. It asks you for personal information you should definitely not reveal to just anyone or any application.

    As always, we advise you not to click on suspicious links, even if it comes from your Facebook friends who might have fallen for the scam. And under no circumstances should you give away your personal information, unless you’re absolutely sure why and who you’re giving it to.
