NEXT “Free £250 Voucher” Facebook Scam

Circulating Facebook post claims that you can click to get a free voucher worth £250 from UK based retailer NEXT.

The post is bogus and it is in no way associated with NEXT. There are no prizes and no winners other than the scammers who created the fake giveaway. Those who participate will never receive the promised free voucher.

In fact, the post is a typical Facebook survey scam designed to trick you into first spamming your friends with the same fake giveaway and then supplying your personal information on third-party  “prize offer” websites.

This Hoax-Slayer YouTube Channel video discusses another survey scam that claims that participants can get the chance to win a Range Rover rather than Next vouchers. Although the “bait” is different, the underlying scam is the same.

These types of scams continue to be very common on Facebook.
