Post being shared on Facebook claims that a Facebook Page called “Range Rover/Sport.” is giving away three 2016 Range Rovers. For a chance to win, claims the post, all you need to do is like and share the message, like the Facebook Page, add a comment specifying what colour car you would like, and click a link to claim your prize.
Both the post and the Facebook Page it comes from are fraudulent. The Page is not giving away any Range Rovers. Those who participate have zero chance of winning anything at all. The only winners are the scammers who created the bogus promotion.
This is yet another Facebook scam that is designed to trick you into spamming your friends with the same bogus giveaway and then submitting your personal information on dodgy “survey” and “prize offer” websites. In recent years, there have been a series of very similar Facebook scams that have falsely claimed to be giving away Range Rovers or other high-end vehicles.
This Hoax-Slayer YouTube Channel video discusses another version of the Range Rover giveaway scam:
