Facebook Page called “US Powerball” claims that you can get a chance to win a one million dollar jackpot by liking, sharing, and commenting on a promotional post and then clicking a link to enter.
The Facebook Page is fraudulent. It is not associated with Powerball in any way whatsoever and those who participate have no chance of winning anything at all. The Page is a scam designed to trick you into spamming your friends with the bogus Powerball post and then disclosing your personal information on dodgy survey websites.
US Powerball Facebook Scam
According to a Facebook Page that calls itself “US Powerball”, lottery game Powerball is offering free entry via Facebook to a $1 million jackpot. For a chance to win the jackpot, claims a promotional post on the Page, all you need to do is like and share the post, comment “done”, and click a link to an entry form. It claims that the winner will be chosen later in the month and notified “via inbox message”.
However, the Facebook Page is fraudulent. It is not associated with Powerball in any way and it is certainly not offering a $1 million jackpot. Those who decide to participate have zero chance of winning anything at all.
