Scams

Prestige World Facebook Scam

Various Facebook pages claiming to be a company named Prestige World have published multiple Facebook posts stating that they are giving away luxury Winnebagos (RVs) to Facebook users who like their page, share their post, and comment on their post. The post says that the company is “celebrating 20 years in business this September” and that “someone is going to walk away with the keys to this Stunning Luxury Winnebago.”

This is absolutely false. Prestige World is not a legitimate company and you will not win anything by following instructions provided in their posts. The name Prestige World was likely taken from the movie Step Brothers starting Will Ferrell.

There are local Winnebago dealers that go by the name Prestige but the Prestige World Facebook pages are not associated with the local businesses.

Facebook pages like this usually lure in unsuspecting Facebook users with provocative giveaways in order to perform other scams in the future. For example, the Facebook page administrator or another Facebook account may message Facebook users whom have become duped by this scam and ask them for an advance payment in order to receive the vehicle.

The Facebook scam also acquires Facebook likes by tricking Facebook users. This helps the page seem legitimate to those duped by it. If you come across Facebook pages like this do not like them, report them to us (Contact formFacebook page) or use the report the page feature to report the dubious page to Facebook.

This is an example of one of the posts published by the Prestige World Facebook page:
