Like many successful businesses on facebook, it appears that scammers are trying to cash in on our name with the intention of scamming our many followers.
The latest scam is a page / person – Jambons’wholesale Goods-Ltd – that is contacting people through facebook / messenger telling them that they have to reply to a message, like, share and follow their page, and then they will be guaranteed a prize. This is not from the official Jambons facebook account – Jambons wholesale goods Ltd.
These scams could be as simple as ‘Like Farming’, or may be more sinister, especially if they ask you for your payment details so that they can despatch your ‘prize’. There was a big scam on facebook a couple of weeks ago where a page purporting to be Aldi gained tens of thousands of likes and followers in a few minutes by offering a non existent hamper to people who liked and shared the fake page.
At Jambons, we take your privacy and security very seriously so please be aware of the following:
- We will never send you unsolicited emails or messages.
- If you enter one of our competitions or prize draws the winner will be notified via a video on our facebook page and you will be asked to contact us
- We will never ask you for payment or bank account details, or any other personal information.
- We will never send you a friend request as we are a business page.
If you receive a message that you think is suspicious, please report it to facebook and / or notify us at the official Jambons facebook page. Do not reply to the message and do not open any attachments.
The above is the official Jambons facebook page.
