InformationWeek warns about a scam spreading across the social networking site…
Beware of a gift scam that promises to reward a limited number of respondents with a $400 voucher to Australian retailer Woolworths. The scam typically circulates via Facebook, after a user shares a link to a “Get a Free $400 Woolworths Voucher Now” page with their Facebook friends.
Interestingly, clicking on the included link — woolworthsfree.net — dumps most people onto a Google search page, with no further offers being forthcoming.
The scam is using common legitimate business techniques – requesting users share the deal and “Like” the page – to send users to pages where personal information is collected and possibly used for identity theft. So if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
