Looking for the Robin Williams’ Good-bye Video? It’s a Scam!

by Steve Ray on August 18, 2014

If you’re on social media today, you’ll likely see a Facebook link claiming to show a goodbye video message from Robin Williams to his fans.

Don’t fall for it.

The video, which claims to show the actor shortly before his suicide Aug. 11, is a hoax, internet experts say. The link – which has been shared more than 24 million times, takes users to a fake BBC page that asks them to go through a series of surveys. They surveys ask for personal user information and can be used to send spam and junk mail to those who take part.
