Reasons why deceptive Facebook pages perform like-farming scams

  • To gather Facebook likes – Gathering Facebook likes helps the deceptive Facebook page come across as legitimate and safe to some people.
  • Phish personal information from surveys – Some Facebook scams will instruct Facebook users to visit a survey-scam website designed to gather personal information inputted by the user for various purposes.
  • 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 Free Iphones IOS7 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.
