Take a look at this Facebook page - really quickly:
It's Tesco's page isn't it. Isn't it? Actually, it's not. THIS is Tesco's page:
If you're quick, you can check out the fake page but it won't - hopefully, last long. How did I find it? I happened to notice that a couple of contacts had liked the fake page because they had an update which said 'we have 200 Kindle Fire's which have slight package damage therefore they cannot be sold. So we are giving them away absolutely free! Want one? Share and Like this photo! Winners will be announced and messaged tomorrow evening. Good Luck!
Seriously? Tesco giving away products worth £100+ for free because of a damaged box? It's unlikely. So I followed the link. First thing that I noticed is that it doesn't say 'Tesco' it says 'Tesco.' and that full stop is really important, because it's a different word. Next thing - 236 likes. For Tesco? The real page has over 1 million likes. Third, there's no extra content on the page, and it should be brimming with information. Yet - nothing.
So what's going on? There are no Kindles, and this isn't a Tesco page. It's a fake, designed solely to get likes and comments. That pushes it up the Facebook rankings, and if it gets enough, someone will sell it, and the content can be changed to anything anyone else wants.
This is a blatent con - yet Facebook does nothing to stop this. They only act when they're forced to. They have NO interest in you or your wellfare, because they could easily stop the sale of Facebook pages, yet they don't because the more pages there are, the more advertising they can push.
Please - think carefully before you like pages. Don't leave your commonsense behind you. Don't trust Facebook, and keep sharp - because if you get fooled by this, think how easily you could get fooled by a real scammer, who knows what they are doing? I don't often ask for retweets etc, but I'd really like to get this post seen by as many people as possible - so please do retweet, and share on Facebook!
