A Facebook page named Daily Feeds falsely claims to be giving away prizes to Facebook users who like their page, share their posts, and comment on their posts.

The Daily Feeds Facebook page has published a post that claims if a user shares the post, likes the post, comments “i shared” on the post, and likes the Daily Feeds page that they will be given a chance to win a “beautiful tiny house.” This is not true. Daily Feeds is not giving away 3 tiny houses to Facebook users who complete their instructions.
Daily Feeds post example
<3 BEAUTIFUL TINY HOUSE GIVEAWAY <3
SHARE THE POST, LIKE IT AND COMMENT “i shared”
THREE RANDOM FANS WOULD BE ANNOUNCED ON OCT 3RD
WINNER MUST HAVE LIKED OUR PAGE Daily Feeds
Reverse image search
The Facebook post contains an image of a small cottage. When we performed a reverse image search of the picture posted to the Facebook page we were able to locate over 20,300,000 search results. Some of the results were exact matches for the image of the small house posted on the Facebook page. This suggests that the image used by the Daily Feeds Facebook page is just a random image of a small cottage found on the internet.
Needless to say you will not win a tiny house if you like the Daily Feeds Facebook page, share their post, like their post, and comment “i shared” on their post. It is a like-farming scam designed to gather Facebook likes for a variety of reasons.
Reasons why deceptive Facebook pages perform like-farming scams
- To gather Facebook likes – By gather Facebook likes it helps the deceptive Facebook page seem legitimate and safe to some people.
- To gather targets – If you are someone who falls for Facebook scams like this you will become a target for future scams. The Facebook page or a Facebook account associated with the page might even send you a message on Facebook claiming that you won and that you must pay an advanced fee or shipping fee to acquire the prize. In reality, you will not receive the prize and will lose the payment you sent to the scammer.
Although the tiny house giveaway scam might seem harmless it is actually a very malicious scam. Victims of these scams often fall victims to advance fee fraud and other scams related to the page. The Facebook pages will target people who mindlessly follow the instructions they post on their Facebook page.
