Eduard Kovacs, writing for Softpedia, describes a Facebook scam where people are lured into Liking a Facebook page by the promise that one of them will receive a brand new BMW X6. He says:
Of course, BMW doesn’t have anything to do with this BMW Manager page or with the alleged giveaway. Instead, as Hoax Slayer highlights, scammers are simply trying to trick users into liking their Facebook page to increase its value.
The article is at Facebook Scam: BMW Manager Donates a Brand New X6. Of course, there are probably lots of legitimate pages that offer giveaways for Likes, but there are also a lot of pages that don’t represent the company they seem to. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy to distinguish between fakers and the real thing.
