Beware of Tiffany & Co. Giveaway Facebook Scams
Jul 16, 2015
The Facebook posts below: "To celebrate the launch of our London store we're giving away a £5000 spending spree to 3 lucky winners" and "we are giving away this stunning diamond ring worth £20,000 to celebrate the opening of our new London store," are fraudulent, and are Facebook like-farming scams. The scams will attempt to trick Facebook users, by claiming that they can have a chance of receiving £5000 to go on a spending spree, and a diamond ring worth £20,000. But, the fake Facebook posts and page have nothing to do with Tiffany & Co., and is only a scam to get Facebook users to comment on, "like" or share the same deceptive posts with their friends. The victims of the scam may also be asked to complete surveys.

If you have received the same fake posts on your Facebook Wall or Timeline, please report it to Facebook as spam.
