Facebook Page called “Blameitonal” publishes a continuing stream of “prize ” posts that claim users can win cars, cash, and other valuable prizes just by liking, sharing, and commenting.
The Facebook Page is fraudulent. The competition posts are not genuine and participants have no chance whatsoever of winning the prizes listed. There ARE no prizes.
The fraudulent Facebook Page is designed to accumulate large numbers of likes as quickly as possible. By tricking people into liking, sharing, and commenting, the scammer is able to very effectively and cheaply promote the fraudulent Page across Facebook.
Once the bogus Page has gained a great many new likes, it can then be used to launch further scam campaigns, this time to a much larger potential audience. Or, it might be sold on the black market to other scammers.
Many of the scam posts link to other fraudulent Facebook Pages that are obviously owned and operated by the same scammers. All of these connected scam Pages regurgitate the same fake giveaway posts over and over again.
Don’t be fooled! Don’t help these scammers by liking their bogus Facebook Pages or participating in their fake giveaways.
