Yet Another Facebook Hoax Says Zuckerberg Will Donate 50 Cents For Every Like On This Image
Increasingly Facebook is becoming the go to place for hoaxes and scam as it seems that a week doesn’t go by without someone reporting about gullible people with absolutely no sense falling for some of the most obvious scams and hoaxes.
This one, which says that Mark Zuckerberg will donate 50¢ for every “Like” clicked for this image of a woman who has been abused daily by her husband.
Here is the message that is being spread with the image:
Her name is isabella, she was abused at home by her husband every single day because she didn’t cook dinner for him, her doctor mark grant said she has a broken bone and ankle and they will need $200,000 by 19th June for her operation, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerburg has agreed to donate 50 cents for every like this photo gets, one like wont hurt, so please like if you have a heart.. do not ignore this. Men should NOT abuse their wife.
Watch the PROOF of the video on YouTube of her husband abusing her at home, has been sentenced for 20 years now — > [link]
First clue something isn’t right – the doofus can’t even spell Zuckerberg’s name correctly. The second clue that there something is wrong is that if Mark Zuckerberg had actually agreed to do something like this it would have been announced on his Facebook page and spread like wildfire throughout not just Facebook but the tech blogosphere as well.
The amazing, and saddening, thing is that at the time the above image was captured there were 50,000+ people who fell for this stupidity. Oh and that YouTube link in the post that is suppose to lead to a video exposing this so-called abuse – it isn’t real. It instead leads to a video of two stupid girls making fools of themselves.
Yup, suckers are born every minute, even more so on the Internet it seems.
