Eat for Free at Pizza Hut Facebook Scam
After the the Starbucks voucher scam and the free $250 Outback Steakhouse gift card scam, another bogus offer is yet circulating on Facebook. This time, the message says you can eat for free at the popular pizza restaurant Pizza Hut if you share or repost the message and its link, leave a comment and provide the information you are asked for.
The scammers behind these bogus restaurant and coupon give away scams are maliciously using popular names in the food and restaurant industry to lure Facebook users to visit websites which ask people to provide personal information such as names, email, addresses and contact numbers. These pages may also bombard visitors with surveys and ads.
Here is the misleading Free Pizza Hut Coupon message as it circulates on Facebook:
