According to various posts that are currently circulating on Facebook, you can get free McDonald’s meals just by sharing and commenting.
The posts, which feature the McDonald’s logo and product graphics, claim that every person who shares and comments with the next 24 hours will get 3 large Big Mac meals for free. The messages urge you to hurry up because the supposed offer is only valid until a specified date.

The posts are scams designed to promote bogus Facebook Pages and profiles to a wider audience. Using such tactics, the scammers can effectively grow their audience and significantly increase the potential reach of future fraudulent posts.
After they have thus created a wider pool of potential victims, the scammers can begin promoting other types of scams that will generate revenue for them.
New versions of the McDonald’s giveaway posts with new “valid till” dates keep appearing on Facebook. If one crosses your news feed, don’t be tempted to participate. If you do so, you will be helping Facebook scammers target your friends and family. And, to reiterate, you will never receive the promised Macca meals.
