Disney Cruises (Facebook Scams)

The Disney Cruises Facebook scam is designed to phish personal information, including your full name, home address, email address, and telephone number. This is not information you want scammers associated with the Disney Cruises to acquire.

The Disney Cruises scam is a Facebook scam that uses a fake page which claims to be “Disney Cruises” in order to obtain your personal details. The fake Disney Cruises Facebook page will claim to be giving away free Disney cruises if you sign up and share their posts, for example a recent post the fake Facebook page says “win a Disney Cruise for up to 5 people.” However, the fake Disney Cruises Facebook page is not actually giving anything away and just wants to collect your personal information for marketing and other unknown purposes. If you sign up for the Disney Cruises giveaway you can expect spam email that may be malicious, junk mail at home, phone calls from scam artists and telemarketers, and more.

A simple way to tell that the Disney Cruises Facebook page is fake is that “Disney Cruises” is not actually called by this name. It is realistically called “Disney Cruise Line” and the real (verified) Facebook page can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/DisneyCruiseLine
