Clickjackers tend to find the easiest target and expose it in the name of pageviews and clicks for their scams and this week they have taken to Facebook using Ryan Dunn as their motive. Dunn died this week when he sped off the road in his Porsche at 140MPH while under the influence of alcohol.

The scam artists are using various means to gain clicks from curious Dunn fans, asking users to take surveys to view videos and access other information, the most prevalent clickjacking scheme is a request to view a video of Ryan Dunn’s very last words which requires users to verify their age or other personal information.
