No, The “Baby” Facebook Page is NOT Giving Away “20 Luxury RV”

by Brett M. Christensen

Outline:
Facebook Page named “Baby” claims that you can get the chance to win one of 20 luxury RVs just by liking, sharing, and adding a comment.


Analysis:
The Facebook Page is fraudulent. It is certainly not giving away any RVs, luxury or otherwise. Participants have absolutely no chance of winning anything whatsoever.

The Page is a scam designed to collect large numbers of Facebook likes as quickly as possible. After the Page has harvested a great many new likes, it can then be reused to promote further scam and spam campaigns. Alternatively, it might be sold on the black market to other scammers.

This bogus Page just recycles the same scam posts over and over by changing the dates. The previous version had a “winner announcement” date of February 28.  And, the same RV giveaway ruse has been used multiple times in recent months.

Like-farming scams like this one are very common.

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!
