    Classic Fake Holiday used as bait for Like Farming Scam.

    No Terms and Conditions on FB or website . An extension on the Draw Date itself then no result.

    Have any of you seen the Allesandres RV giveaway? I’m presuming that’s a scam

  9. Sam Rawson says:

    Diamond luxury and Rachael boutique are also scams don’t have links as I have blocked them

  10. Rachael Scott says:

  11. Siobhan Lucy says:

    Really useful information 🙂

  12. Frances Heaton says:

    Invaluable information, helpful and informative. Your information gives us lots of advice about possible scam pages. It all helps us to keep safe on the web, thanks Di.

  13. Ali Thorpe says:

    Good information, especially for those unfamiliar with entering competiitons on Facebook. The lengths some scammers will go to is not to be underestimated; there was that “new hotel” one in 2016 which sent out prizes as part of an elaborate way to gain trust. I’m not sure what happened in the end but it was a bizarre situation which I suspect made many entrants disappointed and frustrated.

  14. Megan Kinsey says:

    Thanks Di, this is really helpful. Feels like there are more and more scams every day!

  15. Ruth Pickford says:

    Seem to be more and more…thanks for the tips Di..I have your book which helps too

    I feel this one is…..https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=cristal%20mobile%20homes%20ltd yet my friend thinks its genuine

  18. Yup_thats_my_opinion says:

    Here is another scam page.
    No one ever seem to win on this page.
    https://www.facebook.com/Guns-Knives-209063796229905/

  19. Weeteggs says:

    Ilovewallpaper.co.uk is genuine but they recently ran a comp to like and share for £300 worth of product on FB, they said the winner would be announced on instagram, loads of folk, not on instagram went on to it, started following them! They never announced a winner and the other day they put on FB, the competition is back on as the winner didn’t claim their prize

  20. pdbritmom says:

    Fashion House? they are always having give aways if you like the page, share, etc. I have yet to find a site where it actually announces the winner and awards the prize. That would actually drive 10 times the traffic to their site.

    Her Choice Giveaway of Kitchen Appliances Hoax?

  22. CledusSnow says:

    FB doesn’t allow you to report fake pages- they only offer to allow you to block them or hide them, but not report them.

  23. Regan Ashley Jolly says:

    “World Travels” on FB. Pretty sure it’s fake. ?

  24. Liz Marshall says:

    Platinum World Travel is another one to watch out for.

  25. Geoff Mse Fortt says:

    https://www.facebook.com/National.Lottery.News/?fref=ts I have entered several comps on this page ,just checked their winners page against the facebook posts and apart from 1 all the other comps have been won by people who haven’t entered.

  26. June Gaynor says:

    On-Trend is another one. No website. They ran a car competition last week, no T&Cs. Now all traces of the competition posts have disappeared and there is a new one this week for a MAC Make up kit.

  27. TalkIsCheap says:

    Obviously fake but people still fall for it. Surprise your family/kids by winning a Thomson Holiday. (Limited Time) Just share this post then go here: http://www.thomsons-holiday.com/?comps for a chance to win a Thomson holiday. Limited time only, winners are notified. Good Luck!
