After the Victoria’s Secret Valentine  Day Gift Card another new scam is brewing up on where scammers are pretending to give away free Vitoria’s Secret gift card for a limited time.

Victoria's Secret Gift Card Scam

The new scam is similar to the other Gift Card scams which have been doing the rounds of Facebook lately and asks users to complete a survey before they can get hold of the Victoria’s Secret Gift Card. The scammers ask the users to post the page to their profile and also like the Facebook page using the Facebook like button.

However, clicking on the "Like button" on the Facebook scam page will take you to a page where the scammers will collect your email address and then collect your personal information and then ask you to complete a survey before you can get your gift card.

It is recommended that you DO NOT click on such links or scam messages on Facebook. If you come across this scam message, please delete/remove the scam from your Facebook news feed immediately. Alternately, you can report the scam to Facebook Security.
