Perhaps because it is such a high-profile entity and is known all around the world, Disney tends to be a favourite target for Facebook scammers.
Some of the fake pages claim you can win fabulous Disney cruises. Others promise free theme park tickets. Still others offer all expenses paid vacations to Disney locations complete with spending money.
Some are survey scams designed to trick you into giving personal information via dodgy survey websites. Others are like-farming scams that are created with the goal of accumulating as many likes as possible in the shortest possible time.
So, be wary of any Facebook Page or post that claims to be associated with Disney and offers expensive Disney prizes in exchange for liking and sharing or participating in surveys.
Remember that official Disney Facebook Pages will likely feature Facebook’s blue “verified” icon beside their Page names.
A recent example:
Your chance to win a Walt Disney World Vacation with a $5,000 give-away for up to 5 people. Like/Share/Comment then visit: [Link removed] and register for a chance to win.
