Hoax: ROACH TRAPPED inside vagina laid eggs
A very strange Facebook scam and hoax is one that claims a woman visited a hospital due to pain and found out that a roach had crawled inside her vagina while she was asleep, laid eggs, the eggs hatched and they all began eating her uterus.
Although this sounds possible, the story is absolutely false. This Facebook hoax has been around for a very long time. There are many different versions of hoaxes relating to roaches and some are sent via email messages as opposed to being a post or message on Facebook.
Most of the time these hoaxes are meant as a joke to disturb and frighten people; However, in other cases images and content may be used to bait victims into clicking malicious links that download malware or direct victims to suspicious websites.
Clicking links associated with Facebook scams may also result in a compromised Facebook account where scam artists and other entities can use the compromised account on the user’s behalf.
The example below is from a Facebook hoax that is sent as a message and can also be found as a post on a Facebook news feed that is sent from hijacked, fake, and duped Facebook accounts. This Facebook hoax claims that a cockroach climbed inside a woman’s vagina, laid eggs, the eggs hatched, and all of the roaches began to eat on the woman’s uterus.
What the what?!!!!! I have absolutely seen it all now… Soooo… A young lady comes into the ER last night. She was having heavy vaginal discharge and pain. She thought it was a yeast infection, I;m thinking a STD!! So, the Gynecologist comes in to do the pap. He pops her open and he almost fell back! She had a ROACH TRAPPED inside of her that had laid eggs and they all were ALIVE eating on the lining of her Uterus! She had an infection severely… She said she have roaches at home and one must have crawled in the bed and found a warm hole to lay her eggs! My mouth was opened like a dam Alligator! I’m done! I’m done! Lord!!!
