KFC “Free Zinger Burger Coupon” Facebook Scam

Outline:
Circulating Facebook post claims that you can click to get a free Zinger Burger coupon from fast food outlet KFC.



Analysis:
The post is fraudulent. It is not associated with KFC in in any way and those who participate will never receive the promised Zinger Burger voucher.

In fact, the message is a typical Facebook scam designed to trick you into first spamming your friends with the same fake giveaway and then divulging your personal information on scam survey websites.

This video from the Hoax-Slayer YouTube Channel discusses a survey scam that promises participants the chance to win a Range Rover.  Whether the supposed prize is burgers, holidays, cars, or even houses, the underlying scam is the same.
