Lil’ Wayne Found Dead Scam; Facebook and Twitter

The “Lil’ Wayne Found Dead” celebrity death scam is running today on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter, according to Softpedia News.

The scam refers to a video entitled “R.I.P - RAPPER LIL WAYNE FOUND DEAD!” that redirects users to web site surveys. Users are invited to like the video to see it.

No matter how many surveys users complete, they do not gain access to the bogus video because it does not exist.

Beware of the Facebook post entitled “WOW. Just saw the video. This is crazy. He overdosed on syrup. RIP Lil Wayne.”
