‘Win a Brand New 2019 Ford Raptor’ Facebook Scam

by Brett M. Christensen

Yet another car giveaway scam is hitting Facebook.

This version claims that you can get the chance to win a 2019  Ford F150 Raptor just by liking, sharing, and commenting.

Supposedly, the previous winner of the pictured vehicle could not accept the prize because she was under 16. So, claims the post, the vehicle is being given away again.

But, in fact, the post is a scam. As is the Facebook Page that published it. No cars are being given away and those who participate have no chance of winning anything at all, let alone the pictured vehicle.

If you participate in one of these fake Facebook giveaways, you are helping scammers make money and exposing your friends to the scams as well. 

Here’s a screenshot of the scam post:

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!

Brett Christensen,
