Facebook luxury RV giveaway is a scam

luxury-753A page called “Luxury.RV” on Facebook claims it’s giving away 150 RVs and promising that Facebook users only need to like and share a photo of several RVs and leave a short comment on the post in order to qualify for winning one of the RVs.

The page states: “To celebrate over 50 years of being in business we’re giving away this luxury motor home this month! The winner will be chosen July 30th at 10:30 p.m. EST so be sure to like our page to see if it’s you! Good luck!” 

However, the “Luxury.RV” page is all a scam, according to Snopes, which says in part, “there are several other ways to tell that this ‘Luxury RV’ page is a hoax. First, while this message purportedly comes from a business that has been operating for 50 years, their Facebook page was only established on 21 July 2016. Second, the Facebook page claims that it represents Major RV, a company based out of California, but lists its location as Eving, Germany. The lack of contact information on the Facebook page is also suspect.”

    The reason crooks are posting a ‘free RV’ on facebook is because they notify someone they “won”, then ask for all sorts of personal info which they use either to steal your identification or ask you for a ‘delivery fee’ and of course, never deliver.
