A typical message reads:

THERE IS A VIRUS GOING THROUGH OUR COMMENTS. IT WILL START SENDING LINKS IN YOUR NAME. IT SAYS "I KNOW YOU WILL LIKE THIS" OR "LOOKING FOR SOME FUN". THEN IT HAS A PAGE LINK SAYING "NEW GIFTS FOR YOU". DO NOT OPEN THIS LINK. THEY ARE POPPING UP EVERYWHERE!! PLEASE COPY and put on your status and HELP WARN those in your circle!!

There are plenty of folks raising awareness of the so-called "New Gifts For You" virus, but so far I haven't seen any evidence that the threat actually exists.
