Internet games on websites like face book... Are fun and addicctive...
But you could loose real money without ever knowing it.
Farmville... Mafia wars and Restaurant city can all be played over the internet... And millions are logging on... But be carefull where you click.
What looked like a harmless waste of time could turn into a scam racking up on your cell phone bill.
Here's how it works....
Some 3rd party advertisers are preying on the rising popularity of mini games on social networking sites like face book....
With deceptive internet ads... They offer farmville currency just to fill out an I-Q quiz.
But to get the results users are asked to enter their cell phone numbers....
After that a fee begins to appear on your bill.
"I would be wary of anything that offers you free surveys because the moment you put in personal info like your cell phone number or credit card number they are probably charging you."
It is hard to know how many people have been affected... But face book and my space say they're cracking down.
If you are worried about scams like this.... Don't give out your cell phone... E-mail or any personal banking information if you click on these ads.
To be extra safe.... Don't click on them at all.
