Currys Facebook Free TV Giveaway Scam: Samsung Scratched Televisions

There is a Curey Facebook scam post claiming Currys is offering 65 inch Samsung TVs for free that cannot be sold due to 'slight scratches'. The fake Currys TV Giveaway asks users to share and comment on it in order to receive their free TV. But, this is just another like-farming Facebook scam. Therefore, Facebook users who have received the fake post should just delete it. And, those who have already shared or commented on it, should delete the share or comment.

The Currys TV Giveaway Scam

"We’ve had 350 Samsung 65” TV’s delivered.

Sadly 27 of them had slight scratches and can’t be sold, share by 11pm tomorrow to win 1"

This collecting of information by scammers is another like-farming, data mining or information-mining scam that we have seen before, which collects Facebook users' publicly available information for scammers and spammers. Once scammers have gotten a hold of the information, they will use it to make their scams more convincing to their potential victims, by referring to them by their names and providing them with information that they think only people that they know, would know.

For the spammers, users’ information is like gold. They will continuously send unsolicited messages and emails to their victims. So, Facebook users should be careful of what they like, share and comment on.
