If you would like to know more in detail about the Scam please read my last post: Facebook Revolving Images Scam
Now in this post I will try to walk you through a solution which I found online to safeguard yourself from this scam and not to become a victim of it again.
The spam is making wall posts and is updating users’ status’. To do this, it is using the a not so newly launched Facebook feature called “Upload Via E-mail”. It is a unique personal Email address given to every user which allows one to post status updates or send photos and videos straight to one’s profile. The spam has recorded this Email address of yours and is using it to update your status. Thankfully, Facebook lets you change this E-mail ID. This is how you can do it.
Step 1: Go over to http://www.facebook.com/mobile/
Find “More Facebook Mobile Products” written somwhere down. Find “Upload Via Email“. Click “Find out more“.
Facebook Mobile Page
Step 2: Now look at the image below and click exactly where it says “..refresh your upload email.” or exactly where you see the cursor in the image.
Reset Mobile Upload Email
Step 3: Now press reset. Don’t worry, your computer will not crumble to pieces. At least, not yet.
Confirm Email Resetting
Step 4: If you see an image something like this (below) then you are done for the day. The spam won’t work anymore.
Get New Upload Email
Once done you are safe from the scam. But remember:
