Beware these “too good to be true” Facebook ads

We’ve all been there. You're scrolling through your Facebook feed, and an ad pops up promising to help you grow your business with some AI-powered software…


Sounds tempting, doesn't it? Without giving it much thought, you click to see what it’s about.


Bad news: This is a big red flag.



Cybercriminals have been found creating Facebook ads that promise to supercharge your productivity and revenue. But when you click, there's a catch.


The software they ask you to install is actually malware (malicious software).


And when it’s on your computer it can give the criminals access to your Facebook data, including your ad budget.


You might think, "Who'd fall for such an obvious trick?"


But let's be real. When you're a small business owner juggling a million things at once, it's easy to take the bait. And these hackers are smart. They know how to make their phony offers look legit, and how to hide the malware on your computer so it’s hard to spot.
