https://www.reddit.com/r/roblox/comments/hh4t0b That (unfortunately deleted) Reddit post pretty much sums up the scam. Someone (unknown) has been sending this message throughout many accounts. Some people believe it has to do with the video because it was posted the day that reports about it started coming up on Reddit and the Roblox Dev Forums. Now, no one is accusing that the uploader had something to do with it, but it's all very suspicious. If anyone has been tricked by this, or has at least heard of it from a friend, then let's start talking. If any of your friends have fallen for it, please do consider giving them some advice to secure their account, or if it happened to you, then maybe you should consider it too. We need to get to the bottom of this, as it might lead to something bigger. Here are some posts from the official Dev Forums and the Sub Reddit talking about the situation:

It just so happened that the scam got sent to both her and her sister, and I immediately responded with "NO NOT AGAIN", so I guess she was either offended or not being 'gullible'. By the way, look what I was able to do:

I caught the hacker literally sending the scam in real time to another friend lol

Ah, very well then. Good thing you're spreading the word of this scam. If I hadn't know that this existed I would've probably fallen for it as well. Definitely one of the more devious types of scams.

I fell for the scam, but luckily my friend was cool about it and let me unfriend and refriend him after putting the link in our friends chat. I hope I haven't been hacked, although my account started sending the scam message to my friends literally a few hours after I put the link. So... yeah. By the way, I only fell for it because the friend it happened with just so happened to make games on Roblox, and he would ask me stuff like that all the time. So, when he asked for my texture, it seemed fine to do it. Little did I know it was a scam after he started saying "wait I didn't send that". I didn't believe him, but then I searched it.

Did you change your settings after that? Signed out of all sessions, changed password, added PIN and all the other stuff? Better safe than sorry.

I am doing it at the moment, as I wish to be safe. Let's hope nothing goes wrong, because this is serious.

It is explained in the Developer Forum post which is linked in the initial post. If you need a less technical explanation then they provide, please give a yell.

I mean, bots trying to convert me into Christianity doesn't sound so bad.

And yeah some people might fall for this scam, but it really goes to show.. literally never paste a script or url into your browser you get from a random person, or if you can't verify it's safety.
