"Major RV Giveaway" Motorhome Facebook Scam

The Facebook post below, which claims that Major RV is giving away a luxury motorhome to celebrate over 50 years of being in business, is another Facebook phishing scam. The phishing scam is an attempt to trick Facebook users into liking a Facebook post, by claiming that they have a chance to win the motorhome that is being given away. But, the scam is used to gather up the scammers' potential victims, by getting them to like, share or comment on the fake post or page. Once the scammers have gathered up their potential victims, they will start sending them fake friend requests. Once the potential victims have accepted the fake requests, the scammers will start sending them malicious posts with links that download malware that infect their computers with viruses/spyware/ransomware, or links that will take them to fake or phishing websites that will steal their online account credentials and personal information.
