‘£45 Tesco Voucher to Every Family’ Facebook Scam

by Brett M. Christensen

A post circulating rapidly on Facebook is claiming that large retailer Tesco is giving every family a free voucher valued at £45. The post features an image depicting one of the vouchers.

However, the post is fraudulent. It has no connection to Tesco and people who participate will never receive the promised voucher.
In reality, the post is just another  Facebook giveaway scam designed to trick you into submitting your personal information on suspect websites. The information you provide on the sites will be shared with dodgy marketing companies who will inundate you with unwanted phone calls, emails, text messages, and letters.

This type of scam is very common on Facebook. the scammers who create these fraudulent giveaway post have used the names of many popular companies around the world.

Importance Notice

After considerable thought and with an ache in my heart, I have decided that the time has come to close down the Hoax-Slayer website.

These days, the site does not generate enough revenue to cover expenses, and I do not have the financial resources to sustain it going forward.

Moreover, I now work long hours in a full-time and physically taxing job, so maintaining and managing the website and publishing new material has become difficult for me.

And finally, after 18 years of writing about scams and hoaxes, I feel that it is time for me to take my fingers off the keyboard and focus on other projects and pastimes.

When I first started Hoax-Slayer, I never dreamed that I would still be working on the project all these years later or that it would become such an important part of my life. It's been a fantastic and engaging experience and one that I will always treasure.

I hope that my work over the years has helped to make the Internet a little safer and thwarted the activities of at least a few scammers and malicious pranksters.

A Big Thank You

I would also like to thank all of those wonderful people who have supported the project by sharing information from the site, contributing examples of scams and hoaxes, offering suggestions, donating funds, or helping behind the scenes.

I would especially like to thank David White for his tireless contribution to the Hoax-Slayer Facebook Page over many years. David's support has been invaluable, and I can not thank him enough.

Closing Date

Hoax-Slayer will still be around for a few weeks while I wind things down. The site will go offline on May 31, 2021. While I will not be publishing any new posts, you can still access existing material on the site until the date of closure.

Thank you, one and all!
