    I think it has more to do with the fact that the “spelling” most facebook users employ is intentionally lax. They don’t recognize mistakes because you can spell anything however you want and someone will understand.

    What amuses me about this is the fact that people do not understand that companies like Facebook would spend considerable amounts of money ensuring that the spelling of anything they officially put out would be correct. So “get your upgrade while THEIR (sic) free” should stand out from a mile away. THEY’RE. But unfortunately the literacy of even ‘English as a native language’ people seems to be so poor that they can’t spot this mistake!

    But by researching it he can then go off and tell his friends exactly why they shouldn’t run / download / install the file or fall for the scam.

    Deleting is only fine IF you don’t intend to warn other people about it, because they sure won’t delete or ignore. Help them out of their ignorance, don’t let them stew in it.

    No, no, no, no, no. The real top tip: *anything* that tells you to forward it to (or in fb terms, “invite”) all of your friends and contacts is *always* a scam, don’t waste time researching it, just delete/ignore it at once and save all your effort.
