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

The Facebook page that calls itself "The Weekly Deal" (see below), which claims that Facebook users can like their page or comment the word "Win" to get updates on weekly deals, free stuffs and more, is a like-farming scam. The scam gathers up thousands of likes, comments or shares to promote unwanted products or trick Facebook users into disclosing their personal information on fraudulent survey websites. And, the prizes offered do not exist and those who participate have no chance whatsoever of winning anything at all.

The fraudulent page tricks Facebook users into spamming their friends with fake prize offers, and then trick them into supplying their personal information on survey scamming websites. Personal information supplied on the survey scamming websites will be shared with unscrupulous or rogue marketing companies who will subsequently flood Facebook users with unwanted phone calls, emails, text messages, and surface letters. The scammers who operate the "The Weekly Deal" Facebook page earn commission when people supply their personal details on the survey websites.

    I have been contacted by Weekly Deals saying I won the sweepstakes, but I MUST send a cash amount to an agent to get the 10 digit number, so they can send my mercedes, 1,000,000$ and 50,000$. Plus, they need my bank info to set up payments. Also I CANNOT tell anyone about my winnings until I pay and they update their stuff. Who should I report them to. They guarantee the money and prizes will be here the day I send the money.
