The Internet is already the traditional site of various cheating and fraudulent websites that try to get sensitive information from their visitors. A common phenomenon is the competition for valuable prices, which often only strive to make money from users. We have warned us of such fraud several times on our site. Among the latest discoveries, another fraudulent competition has been added Polis SR within his Facebook page of Hoaxes and Scams.
Underwater competition on Not9
The site is called Samsung Slovakia (fb.com/samsungslovakia) is officially represented by a South Korean manufacturer in Slovakia. Meanwhile, he denied that this is his own profile. The site says that Samsung celebrates its 80th anniversary since its launch, and for that reason it puts the four newest phones in the competition Samsung Galaxy Note 9 on a photo depicted in 4 colors. Facebook users should have status, share it and tag another person from their friends in the comment.
The website says that the competition will be evaluated only if it involves at least 3,000 people. In these competitions, the organizer usually extends the base to Facebook fan sites and names people willing to participate in a fraudulent competition. These people are then contacted by fraud and in different ways they try to get money out of them as "winning or controlling" fees. It is often a small amount, but with a large number of fraud it makes a large number.
How do you know the bluff page?
Slovakia's police also warns how to recognize the common features of similar websites:
1. In the case of big brands, there are paradoxically few fans. Every big and well-known brand has been on Facebook for years with a large audience.
2. Absence of the text in the "Information" section, for example, the infidelity number or official email address is missing.
3. No website content except a single entry related to the competition. Possibly nothing to talk about statuses. No posts on specific persons, representatives of companies.
4. No innovative competition, just classic "share, comment, mark".
