A fake “Disney Cruise Line” Facebook page that surfaced over the weekend is the latest scam targeting Disney fans.
The page, created on Saturday, posted a link to a “contest” that has been liked over 12,000 times and shared 17,000 times. The post reads:
“We at ~Disney Cruise~ are currently having a great year and would like to share our good fortune with our loving fans! We are giving away Vacation Packages to any of our cruise locations. Which will include all expenses paid for 7 days (ROOM – SUITE & $3,500 SPENDING MONEY) for you and 3 of your friends.”
The terribly written post asks the user to share the contest and register by entering their e-mail and name into a Facebook contest form.
The “Disney Cruise Lines Fun 2013” page has nearly 2,000 likes as of Monday morning.
“Celebrating A Whopping $2.11 Billion in revenue so far in 2013 we at Disney have decided to end your summer vacation off with a bang by giving away 155 Tickets To Disney Land or Disney World to you our fans!”
That post was liked nearly 11,000 times and shared over 20,000 times.
