Scams

Facebook Scam: Jonathan Embry giveaways

A Facebook page for a fake person named Jonathan Embry claims that Facebook users can win money for liking his posts, sharing his posts, liking his page, and commenting on his posts. This is completely false. This is a typical like-farming scam designed to acquire Facebook likes and shares off of false information.

Facebook like-farming scams are usually harmless; However, many Facebook users are now reporting that profiles associated with the fake Jonathan Embry Facebook page (including the Facebook pages of Preston ParkerAubrey HarperAaron Simon, Doran Foster, and Jordan Embry) will send them private messages, or even call or text them at home telling them that they won and must send them money (usually around $100 – $300 USD) to gather their winnings. The fake Facebook pages will ask victims of the scam to send them an advanced payment through various services like Western Union. They may even ask victims for more personal information.

Furthermore, the Jonathan Embry Facebook page and the previously mentioned pages publish the same post on Facebook at the same time, which suggests that these pages are run by the same person or people. A Facebook user also pointed out to us that the Jordan Embry page was removed around the same time the Jonathan Embry page was established. This might suggest that Jordan simply changed his name and is the same page as before even though the permalinks have changed from EmbryFitness to Embry119.

Most of the “personal” images found on these Facebook pages were stolen from a company called ENTRPRNR (entrprnr.co). We reached out to ENTRPRNR and they supplied this response:

We looked through the Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/prestonparker119 and confirmed that Mr. Preston Parker is indeed using our pictures without permission. I have never heard of him and did not authorize any person to use our images.

The profile picture that Jonathan Embry uses was stolen from this Instagram profile: https://instagram.com/faisal_al_faisali/

The Jonathan Embry Facebook page appears to be a Facebook page that shares viral web content. The Jonathan Embry like-farming scam is essentially designed to gather more daily views for the potential viral content using unethical and dishonest marketing tactics and techniques. The people who like the fake Facebook page are then targeted by the fake page for a variety of marketing purposes and advance-fee fraud.

In conclusion, if you notice a post by Jonathan Embry claiming that you can win a certain amount of money, ignore it. Report it to Facebook if you wish! These types of scams do not do anyone any good.

    He is contacting me now and wants me to pay $199.00 to a lady names Kathleen See in Akron Ohio. He wants me to transfer the money Walmart to Walmart to this person who is supposed to be a merchant banker for the irs. He claims that he will personally deliver my $100000 and new car by 11 am and that he is in Ohio. Exact verbiage “okay the reason why i have contacted you is because you have won yourself 100,000 dollars and a brand new car !!!!” He included a picture of a concept car. He wanted to know if I had a valid bank account for my check and that I need to keep my business private.

  3. Yep! It’s a scam! 9/12/2015 I was informed that I won 950,000 dollars by so called Johnathan Embry. He friended me on Facebook, gave me contact info for his good friend so called john Weguelin supposedly the Chief executive director of zenith bank in London (also fake). These guys draw people in by pretending to be Christian and pretending to help people. Now I can’t access any of their pages and they have a new face and name up showing all the same pics and saying the same things, his name is Gage something. Take my advice and stay clear and ignore these idiots. What alet down. I hope they get these guys soon. Jerks!!!!

  5. I have written Facebook 4 times asking that the fake Jonathan Embry profile and three others like this be taken down. They do nothing. The pictures for one of these guys" homes" is the Trump estate! You think that being on the internet black list would mean something to Facebook. They get on people for fake names but yet a fake person is ignored. Bust these guys. There are currently 834,000 gullible people who have liked this fake page!.
