Walt Disney World Park is not giving away a Disney World Vacation and $5,000

Like-framing scams and advance fee fraud are common issues on Facebook these days. Every day fake Facebook pages are created and new scams are manufactured in order to gather likes and potentially trick Facebook users into believing they won something they really didn’t. Scammers will typically try to persuade Facebook users into believing they won something such as cash, cars, electronics, tickets to theme parks, and cars in order to then message them and ask for an advanced payment to receive the reward. This is called advanced fee fraud and it happens on Facebook all the time.

Walt Disney World Park Facebook

One of the most recent Facebook scams claims that Walt Disney World Park is giving away a free Disney World vacation and $5,000 to 5 people who like, share, and comment on their posts, and then visit and submit information to a cooperating website. But this is not true. In reality, you won’t win anything.

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

Your chance to win a Disney World Vacation with a $5,000 give-away for up to 5 people.
Like/Share/Comment then visit: http://wdisneyworld.momsfavorite.us/ and register for a chance to win.

This is an obvious scam that was posted by a fake Walt Disney World Park Facebook page. You can find the real and verified Walt Disney World Park Facebook page here.

Once a Facebook user shares the 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.

In addition, the fake Walt Disney World Park Facebook page instructs their targets to visit a website and register for a chance to win. The website will ask visitors a serious of questions and once the questions are answered the website will ask for the visitors email address and other information.

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.
