Disney Cruise “Last Minute Cancellation” Facebook Survey Scam

by Brett M. Christensen

Outline:
Circulating post that comes from a Facebook Page called “Disney Cruise.” claims that, due to a last minute cancellation, Disney is giving away a seven day cruise for four people. For a chance to win, claims the post, you just need to share the post, enter the word “Me” as a comment, and then click a link.



Analysis:
The post and Facebook Page are bogus. They are not associated with Disney in any way, and those who participate have no chance whatsoever of winning a cruise or any other prize. There are no prizes and no winners other than the scammers who created the fake Facebook Page.

It is yet another Facebook scam designed to trick you into giving out your personal information on scam websites and spamming your Facebook friends with the same fake prize posts.

In recent years, there have been an ongoing series of similar Facebook scams that have falsely claimed to be giving away Disney cruises and other Disney related prizes.

This video from the Hoax-Slayer YouTube Channel discusses a similar survey scam attempt that promises participants the chance to win a Range Rover rather than a Disney cruise:

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!
