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.
