Free Iphones IOS7 is not giving away 80,000 iPhones to Facebook users

A Facebook like-farming scam associated with advance-free fraud claims that Free Iphones IOS7 is giving away “80,000 iPhones” to 80,000 Facebook users who like the image they posted, like the Free Iphones IOS7 Facebook page, comment what color they want (black, gray, or silver) and share the post with their friends.

Free Iphones IOS7 giveaway scam

A deceptive Facebook page named Free Iphones IOS7 has recently published multiple Facebook posts in hopes to scam Facebook users. The posts contain images of closed boxes of the Apple iPhone. One image shows boxed iPhones in the back of a pick-up truck and the other image contains 2 men holding new iPhones in front of unopened boxes.

Is Free Iphones IOS7 giving away iPhones?

NO. Free Iphones IOS7 is not giving away free iPhones. The information published by the Free Iphones IOS7 page is entirely false. You will not be given a chance to win an iPhone by completing the instructions published in their posts. There are multiple Facebook pages with the same name that perform this same scam.

Why is this scam dangerous?

Facebook scams like this are very common and easy to point out. There are many similar Facebook scams designed to trick users into believing that they can win some sort of prize by following instructions published in a Facebook post. The reason why cybercriminals conduct these types of Facebook scams are to gather Facebook likes, direct users to a survey-scam website, and obtain targets potentially gullible enough to fall for future scams, including advance fee fraud.

Facebook likes are designed to make the Free Iphones IOS7 Facebook page seem safe and legitimate to other people. The more likes a Facebook page has, the more realistic it might seem to people.

Furthermore, Facebook users who are duped by scams like this will become targeted for other scams by the party behind the initial scam. The fake Free Iphones IOS7 Facebook page or another account associated with the Facebook page might send victims who followed the instructions private messages claiming that they won an iPhone or another prize. The scammers will then ask the targeted victim for an advance payment, for shipping or other purposes. However, once the advance payment is received the victim will not receive the prize and will most likely be blocked from viewing other content posted by the dubious Facebook page. This is called advanced-free fraud and it happens all the time.
