Facebook Account Winner

  • Share via E-mail

How the scam works:

There is a new scam going around, coming to your e-mail inbox as a personal message from Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg. It contains the following text: "This is to inform you that you have won the sum of one million dollars from our 2012 Facebook Inc Sweepstakes. This is a bonus to promote our users worldwide through this online lottery, which is fully based on an electronic selection."

Indeed, just like many other winning notifications, this scam requires you provide your bank account and some other personal information, in order to receive the money. After you connect with 'the agent', he asks you to open a bank account at a financial-looking website (such as http://www.cash.plusbk.net). Then he will send you a bank account information and told you to activate the account by depositing amount of a few hundred dollars (or British Pounds).

How to avoid:

As cool as it is to receive a personal email from Mark Zuckerberg, this is just another scam. Look at the domain name or the email adress they're using. If they claim to be from a corporation but the email comes from a gmail or yahoo address, you should know that something is wrong. Always do your research and trust only legitimate companies. If you are really looking to earn money or rewards online or from social media, there is a couple of companies that are trustworthy and can offer you great opportunities:
