“We Are Giving 20 BMW” Facebook Like-Farming Scam

Outline:
Facebook Page claims that it is giving away 20 BMW cars on February 1st 2017, and, for a chance to win, all you need to do is like the Page, share a post and comment “done”.



Analysis:
The claims on the Facebook Page are lies. The Page is not giving away even 1 BMW, let alone 20. Those who choose to participate by liking, sharing, and commenting have no chance whatsoever of winning a BMW or any other prize.

In fact, the fake Facebook Page is yet another scam designed to accumulate large numbers of Facebook likes as quickly as possible. After the Page has collected a large number of likes, it can then be reused to launch other types of scam. Or, it might be sold on the black market to other scammers.

Like-farming scams continue to be very common on Facebook.
