Beware of "Amazon Spin the Lucky Wheel" Facebook Like-Farming Scam

Would you share this article with others to help inform them?

The "Spin the Lucky Wheel" promotion or contest located at website: "amzon.best-offers .gq," which claims that members get one free spin for a chance to win exclusive prizes at Amazon, is a Facebook Like-Farming or Like-Harvesting scam. The scam gathers together potential victims by tricking them into sharing or liking the scam, by claiming potential victims need to do so in order to claim their prizes. But, sharing the scam will only help to spread it to other Facebook and Whatsapp users.

The following message is used as bait to trick potential victims into visiting the fraudulent website: www.amzon.best-offers .gq:

“Look Amzon.best-offers .gq”

Once the potential victims are taken to the fraudulent website, they will be shown the following message:

Amazon Black Friday Offer Spin The Lucky Wheel

Amazon Spin the Lucky Wheel

Black Friday Offer

Spin The Lucky Wheel!

Only this Tuesday we give our members 1 free spin for a chance to win exclusive prizes!

Clicking the “OK” will display the following message:

Spin The Lucky Wheel!
Only this Tuesday we give our members 1 free spin for a chance to win exclusive prizes!

Once potential victims play the game or spin the wheel, the following message or something similar will be displayed:

Congratulations!

Your prize: Apple iPhone 7(Black, 32GB).

Please follow the instructions to win your prize!

The website will then ask potential victims to like and share the scam. But, sharing the scam will only help to spread it to other Facebook users. Facebook users who have already shared the scam, should unshare it. Click here for instructions on how to unshare, by removing things already posted or shared on Facebook.

    Today I rec'd a pop-up while on Google that had the Amazon logo with the shopping cart on my phone but it had no way to X out. It asked you to spin the wheel and it said that I won $1000 gift card and had five minutes to claim it. I then was able to close it and looked and found a similar story about it but it involves FB.
