Are you tagged in Tweets that read, “Friends, the surprise is coming. Are you interested?” with an image that says Ray-Ban is having a 90% off sale for only 24 hours? Be careful, this is a reoccurring scam!

Scammers use fake Twitter accounts or compromised ones to post Tweets of scam messages and tag people randomly, spamming them with similar messages:
