Online scams are getting more and more clever at conning people out of their personal information and we reckon this new Facebook Messenger one will catch out plenty.

According to Newstalk, users are being targeted by a personalised message that seemingly includes a YouTube link.

The user's name is included in the title of the video, with the message asking 'is that you?'.

On clicking through, the user is asked to enter their password and is then directed to a generic YouTube video.

If you received one of these messages and entered your correct details, your account could be vulnerable so it's prob best to change your password ASAP.
