    hI, my name is Dorothy Moreira. I was on Facebook and they told me I won a case of Marlboro but it never asked me for my address ZIP code; so I was wondering if this is a spam.

      Liking the scam will not put your phone at risk. It will only spread the scam to your Facebook friends, and will allow cybercriminals to send you malicious and phishing links, in an attempt to infect your mobile device with malware and steal your personal information, financial information, and accounts credentials.

      Please remove your "like" from the scam and be careful next time.

        Even if Marlboro gave away one pack per person they would lose billions. Let alone FIVE cartons? Come on, man.

    Hi, what's the catch to it?

      The catch is to, trick you into sharing the same scam, and then trick you into completing surveys. The scammers earn money from each completed survey. So, they will make thousands, if they are able to trick a lot of people into doing the surveys, thinking they will receive free cartons of Marlboro cigarettes. The people on the other hand, who have worked hard to complete the surveys, will not receive the cigarettes they were promised.

    Getting LIKEs and many shares isn't the only goal. They embed malicious content on the page. The person clicks the link, boom the critter goes right into the machine and takes over. Not just losing your Facebook account to a hacker who could change the password and lock you out, gaining a new spambot to attack your friends groups and pages, but worse. It goes mining in your machine for credit card info, key loggers grab numbers, password steal Trojans wreak total havoc, your bank can get wiped out if you bank online and even your identity can be stolen.
