Post on the “Emirates Competition” Facebook Page claims that you can win 5 First Class tickets to anywhere in the world and £10,000 just by liking the Page, sharing a promotional photo, and typing the number 2 as a comment.
The Facebook Page and the posts it generates are fraudulent. The Page is not associated with Emirates in any way and it is certainly not giving away any free flights or cash.
In fact, the page is a typical like-farming scam designed to collect large numbers of likes as quickly as possible. Once the Facebook Page has gained many new likes, it can then be redeployed to launch survey scams or other types of fraudulent activity. Alternatively, the Page may be sold on the black market to other scammers. The more likes the Page has, the more it can sell for on the black market.
Scams like this are extremely common on Facebook. Do not assist the scammers by participating in their fake giveaways.
