How the scam works:
(with video below) Facebook credits are a virtual currency you can use to buy virtual goods for games or apps against Facebook platforms that accept payments. Facebook credits can be purchased from within an app, PayPal, mobile phone, etc. If you were to purchase 1,000 Facebook credits, you would have to pay $1,000. Scammers are promising free 1,000 or 2,000 credits if you click on the page they provide.
Using fake testimonials, they lure people into clicking on three to four consecutive pages and fill out some surveys. That is the trick. They are getting paid as affiliates to have those surveys done. Indeed, at the end of the survey, there are no free points, either.
