Ellen’s Degerezz is a fake Ellen DeGeneres Facebook page, obviously

It’s starting to amaze me how many people are falling for fake Ellen DeGeneres Facebook page scams. There are many fake Ellen DeGeneres Facebook pages and they all misspell her name. Why would Ellen DeGeneres ever misspell her name? Isn’t a name like Ellen’s Degerezz obviously fake? It has an apostrophe and two Z’s in it! Do you know anyone with a name like that? However, for some reason, people still think its a real Ellen DeGeneres page and are putting themselves in danger.

Ellen's Degerezz

The Ellen’s Degerezz Facebook page masquerades as a legitimate Ellen DeGeneres Facebook page. The fake Ellen page has published a series of posts claiming that you can win gift cards and cash if you follow instructions in the post. But, you will not win anything if you like, share, and comment on a Facebook post published by the fake Ellen page. You will only make yourself a target and put yourself in danger, so don’t do it! Why are you doing it in the first place?

Like-farming scams and advance fee fraud are common issues on Facebook these days. Every day new scams are produced in order to obtain likes (aka human targets) and trick Facebook users into believing they can win something (or can obtain something) that they really can’t. Scammers will generally attempt to deceive Facebook users into thinking they won something such as cash, cars, electronics, tickets to theme parks, coupons, and other stuff so that they can send the gullible target a message and ask them for an advanced payment or direct them to a website to gather their personal information. The scammer might claim the advanced payment is for shipping or another reason in order to coax the target to pay-up. Once the advanced payment is paid by the target the scammer simply moves on to the next target. This type of operation is called advanced fee fraud and it happens all the time on Facebook.

There are many fake Ellen DeGeneres Facebook accounts and pages such as Ellen DeGagares, Ellenn’s Dgenerse, and Ellen DeGgners Jr.. The fake accounts and pages are used to conduct scams. One of the most recent scams claims that Ellen’s Degerezz (not DeGeneres) is giving away prizes to Facebook users who like a post, share the post, and tag and friend and comment “money and car” on the post. However, this is not true. In reality, you won’t win anything if you do anything the post says.

Here’s an example of what a post might look like:

starting today,..
I will choose people randomly on Facebook everyone who * shares * will receive gift cards, cash, and big winners can win cars & homes “Share now” don’t miss !!! We watch
Until the weekend !!! I will choose 500 lucky people. $ 500,000 each only follows instructions. …
Step 1-like
Step 2 – Share ” Car ”
Step 3-comment “money and car”

This is an obvious scam that was posted by a fake Ellen DeGeneres Facebook page; It even spells her last name wrong. You can find the real and verified Ellen’s Degerezz’ Facebook page here.

Once a Facebook user shares the fraudulent post, likes the post, and comments on the post they become a target. The scammers will then contact them and tell them that they won a prize and in order to receive the prize they must pay a fee (for shipping or other reason). Once the fee is paid the scammer will then avoid the target and the target will be left with a hole in their pocket. This is how advanced fee fraud is orchestrated on the social network every day.

The scammer has also shared links that direct targets to a website (http://ellengiveawaytowin.blogspot.com/) that claims you can win $500,000 (or another amount). If you click on the page you will then be redirected to a new website that asks you to register using your email address. In reality, you are not entering any give away if you supply your information. It’s simply a trick so don’t get duped.

What to do if you fell for a scam

Do not share or like the post. This only promotes it to more people which is how these scams are usually spread in the first place. If you did, visit your activity and unlike the post.

If you completed online surveys associated there is not much that you can do. However, if you supplied your personal banking or credit information to a survey it is strongly suggested to contact your bank or credit institution for assistance.

If you sent an advanced payment in order to receive a prize contact your bank or credit card and file a claim against the transaction. Explain to your bank or the credit card company what happened in order to receive assistance for the matter.

If you used an online payment service to make an advanced payment contact them and let them know what happened. It is possible that you will be able to receive your money back from them.

Furthermore, terminate all association with the Facebook page. Unlike the Facebook page, report the Facebook page, tell friends that you might have tagged about the scam, and even change your Facebook password for safe measure.
