MELILO PARK, CA — Chances are you’ve seen them, those ads promising amazing “too good to be true” deals on your Facebook feed.

You know the ones offering a “free” I-Phone 6. Yeah, right!

And the other — A shocking video headlining a woman being decapitated by her husband.

Ok, before you’re tempted to get click happy, here’s a status check. Both posts appear to be scams and definitely not worth a like.

According to hoaxslayer.com those I-Phone pages are just a ploy to get your digits.Which means you’ll be subscribed to a pricey text message service that charges you every time they send a text to your phone.

Oh, as for the lady getting axed by her husband — another scam alert site says don’t fall for it.

The link apparently redirects you to a fake Facebook and requires an unknown plug-in before you’re able to see the video.

Yeah, that stinks of a scam to us.

So, if you’re thinking: “Hey, I would NEVER fall for that” … consider this… a reported 4,000 people actually have.

But then again, that could all be a huge sham too!
