You’ve probably received this message already — just don’t open it. Details:

Facebook Messenger users have been told to ignore a four-letter message that could lead to disastrous financial consequences or stolen personal information.

Scammers use the instant messaging platform to send out a four-word “look what I found …” message, and a link from compromised accounts. These message also include emojis as well, 7News reports.

If interacted with, the link takes the user to a site where they’re asked to enter their Facebook log in details. This allows the scammer to steal sensitive information from the user’s profile, or install malware on their phone or computer.
