“1933 Ford Vicky and Custom Trailer Giveaway” Facebook Like-Farming Scam

Outline:
Facebook post claims that you can get the chance to win a 1933 Ford Vicky car with a matching custom trailer just by sharing the post, liking the Facebook Page the post comes from, and adding the comment “Thanks”.


Analysis:
The Facebook Page is fraudulent. It is not giving away a Ford Vicky or any other prize. In fact, those who participate have zero chance of winning anything at all. The image of the Ford Vicky and trailer used in the scam post has been posted to various other websites including one that lists the depicted vehicle for sale.

The bogus post is designed simply to gather large numbers of new likes for the fashion related Facebook Page it comes from.  Via this bogus giveaway tactic, the Facebook Page can gain a great many new likes very quickly. It will thus have a considerably larger potential audience for subsequent posts.

Like-farming scams are very common on Facebook.  In fact, new scam Pages appear on Facebook every day.  Please do not help the scammers who create such fraudulent Facebook Pages by liking, sharing, and commenting.
