Beware of "Newport is Giving Away Free Carton of Cigarette to Celebrate Their 60th Anniversary" Scams

The Facebook post: "Newport is Giving Away Free Carton of Cigarette to Celebrate Their 60th Aniversary," is a scam. The scam will try to trick you into sharing it by claiming that you can receive your free carton of cigarettes at the website: "nph780707f.veboot.xyz." But, the website is fraudulent, is not giving away free cases of Newport cigarettes, and is NOT associated with Newport. The post and website are only a scam to get you to comment on, "like" or share the same Facebook post and website.

Please continue below.

If you have received the same post on your Facebook Wall or Timeline, please report it to Facebook or delete it. And, do not visit the fraudulent website: "nph780707f.veboot.xyz," that was created by scammers. The scammers behind the give-away scam will change the name of the website, so look out for the same scam on different websites.

    I am a Founder and Lead Admin of a gaming group on FaceBook. It is more than just annoying to see this type of scam popping up left and right within our group. So far, in the past few days, we have seen Newport and Marlboro cigarette scam giveaways.. as well as Jack Daniels liquor. I will be passing this information on to my group in and effort to stop this mania. Thank you for this article.
