Facebook Scam – ‘Unsellable’ Roulotte RV Giveaway

According to a Facebook Page that calls itself “Vehicles Fans”, you can go in the draw to win one of thirty Roulotte RVs just by liking, sharing, and commenting.  “Roulotte” is a French word that means “caravan”.

RVs Can’t be Sold Because They Are Unsellable? — Wait, What?

The Page makes the utterly absurd claim that the RV’s cannot be sold because  they are unsellable and are therefore being given away.

-We have got 30 (Roulotte RVs) that cant be sold because
they have been unsellable. Therefore we are giving them away for free.
Want one of them ?! Just Share this photo & Like Our page and we will choose 30 people completely at random on April 19! as your Luck Big Day
Comment ‘DONE’

But, not surprisingly, the claims are nonsense. The Facebook Page is fraudulent and it is certainly not giving away any RV’s. There are no prizes and no winners. The suggestion that any company would give away millions of dollars worth of RVs  to random Facebook users in exchange for a few likes is simply ridiculous. And, the Page does not explain why the  vehicles are unsellable. If the RVs were so damaged and defective that they could not be sold, then they could not be given away as working vehicles either. The “unsellable” claim is meaningless and stupid.

Giveaway is a Like-Farming Scam

In fact, the supposed  giveaway is yet another like-farming scam that is designed to collect as many Page likes as possible in the shortest possible time. Once the  bogus Page has accumulated a large number of likes, it can then be reused to launch survey scams and other  types of fraudulent activity, this time to a much larger potential audience.

Alternatively, after it has gathered a large number of likes, the bogus Facebook Page may be sold on the black market to other scammers who will repurpose  it to fit their own nefarious goals.

By insisting that participants share and comment as well as like, the scammers  ensure that their fraudulent giveaway posts spread rapidly across  Facebook gaining many more victims as they travel.

RV Giveaway Scams Are Very Common

Facebook scammers apparently love the idea of promising users the chance to win (non-existant) luxury RVs.  In recent years, the scam tactic has been used over and over again. And, there are several other fake Facebook Pages that are using the same “Roulotte RV” giveaway posts to harvest likes.

Be wary of any post that claims that you can win a valuable prize  such as an RV just by liking, sharing, and commenting.
