Win a Christmas Trip to Lapland (Facebook Scam)

A Facebook like-farming scam claims that you can win a Christmas trip to Lapland if you like, share, and comment on a post. A Facebook page named “Christmas Trip Lapland” has published several Facebook posts claiming that you can win 5 nights in Lapland for your family. Included is a free flight (return flights), luxury cabin, and a meeting with Santa.

To be clear, you will not win a Christmas trip to Lapland if you like or share posts on Facebook. This is a common like-farming scam designed to gather Facebook likes. The goal for the scammer is to obtain people who might believe they won in order to perform advanced-fee fraud. Most like-farming scams like this are associated with fraud.

The Facebook page or another Facebook account will message people telling them they won. The page or person will then ask the target for an advanced payment of sorts. Once the payment is received the target will not obtain a prize, but will instead lose the money they sent to the scammer.

Lapland is Finland’s northernmost region, a sparsely populated area bordering Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic Sea. It’s known for its vast subarctic wilderness, ski resorts and natural phenomena including the midnight sun and the Northern Lights. One of the main points of interest in Lapland is Santa Claus Village.

The like-farming scam can easily be debunked because it is very similar to other like-farming scams and they use images from https://www.santaclausvillage.info/ without their consent. The website also does not mention the Christmas Trip Lapland Facebook page.

If you come across a page named Christmas Trip Lapland or a Facebook post that claims you can win a trip to Lapland for Christmas make sure to ignore it, report it, or tell the person who shared it that it is a scam.

Here are examples of posts the fraudulent Facebook page has posted:
