The Facebook post and page below, which claim that rapper, MattyB, is giving away $100,000 and a new car to a lucky fan, is a Facebook like-farming scam. The Facebook post and page have nothing to do with MattyB, and is only a scam attempting to trick Facebook users into commenting on, liking or sharing it, by claiming that they have a chance of receiving the money and the new car that are being given away by the young rapper and his Dad, if they do so.
But, the Facebook post and page are fakes. Both have nothing to do with Matt and his father, because they are not giving away cash or a new car. If the post shows up on your Facebook Wall or Timeline, please report it to Facebook as spam.
