    My wife was sent a notice on messenger from a friend; thought it was real; unfortunately we did give them some personal info to them but when they wanted cash for our winnings.

    we felt it was a scam, we tried calling her friend, no answer and she didn't answer any more messages, BEWARE THE WOLVES ARE AT THE DOOR!

    They tried to pull it on me and my fiance. At first, we thought it was real even showed me a certificate. It was when they wanted a fee of 350$ sent to africa. That the red flag went up . So I checked the promotion they were running on Facebook was not authorized by Facebook. So I blocked them out and deleted them.
