Warning: There’s a new Internet scam afoot involving the Casey Anthony trial, the woman accused but then acquitted last week of killing her two-year-old daughter.



If you see a post on Facebook about a Casey Anthony confession, or a link to a video chat, ignore it, warn tech experts.



The links will download malware onto your computer.



The Facebook teaser shouts "BREAKING NEWS--Leaked Video of Casey Anthony CONFESSING to Lawyer!"



But if you click on the link, you will see an "Age verification" box that reads "Are you older than 13 years of age? Click "Jaa" button to confirm and play video."



But the word "Jaa" is actually Finnish for "Share," according to PCWorld. One click of the button means you are granting permission for the malware to be shared on your Facebook network.
