Your free gift is – 1 Best Buy Gift Card.
To claim your gift your must visit http://giftcard.chronine.com/ and follow the instructions on screen.

Unfortunately, Facebook has not teamed up with any company or retailer to give away stuff. Facebook give aways such as these are common strategies used by scammers to lure people into visiting malicious websites that would entice you to install rogue browser addons or application or answer surveys.

You may also be prompted to provide your personal information such as your contact number, which they can further use to send you more spam or bombard your with marketing garbages.

You will not receive the promised give away by “following the instructions” provided in those pages or sites.

Make sure to warn your friends about these fake rewards and offers, share this post on Facebook:

    I received a text this morning at 2:51am. Don't be scammed and don't click the link in the text if you should get one too. I would assume that's how they access your contact list for more numbers to scam.

    just last week i thought i won a free cruise to bahamas found out its for 2 days you have to pay all taxes and you have to pay for the other days of cruise. thats over o $1ooo i dont have. thats how they get you.

  12. Add “bit.ly/xptU87″ to the list of malicious text addresses. I received a couple texts on my phone offering both the iPad2 and the Best Buy gift card. Both texts list the “confirmation number 3129″. The gift card was from the chronine address, the ipad offer was from bit.ly/xptU87. Hope somebody’s writing them addresses down

  13. fakebook rewardless nopads.

  14. I really think that Facebook should be telling people about all the scams. That lure people to all these different websites. Maybe Facebook didn’t team up with anyone. But some people received gifts from someone. So who’s really the liar here? I really would appreciate if Facebook didn’t offer me anything except space to write my post. Thank you!

  15. Christy Mason says:

    I keep receiving emails on my non-email accepted cellphone. It is sub-titled "facebook@rewardfacebook.com."

    The title is that "I have won a $1,000.00 giftcard to WalMart!

    Although I do have my cellphone settings set up not to download the messages, since I choose not to have my cellphone set up to accept emails, and have to pay for each mb if downloaded, it is still a nuisance!

    Some of the emails do have the return email address showing…and offer a variety of different "Prizes Won!"…which I have tried to connect to on my PC, with no avail to ending them! ANYBODY ELSE RECEIVING THIS CRAP? HOW DO iI GET IT TO STOP? THANKS!

  16. This is ridiculous! I’m being harassed by txts for free ipads, vacations, gift cards…..how do I make it stop? I always delete because I know it’s a scam, but I just want them to leave me alone!!!
