Analysis:

Facebook posts shared heavily online claim to give away free iPhone 5S, for which users are told to participate in lotteries by simply following the said process of liking, commenting and sharing. These posts, in various forms and formats originated from the Facebook page titled ‘Iphone 6S Movie Theatre’. Let us see if it is genuine or one of those scams to trick users into marketing/promoting their stuff.

Does it Work?

As we followed the steps mentioned in the Facebook post, clicking the link, we get a warning mentioned below:

Sorry, there was a problem with this link: https://sportlobster.com/fan/Football.Loverss1
You can now continue to this website, or go back to the page you were on before.
Remember, only follow links from sources you trust.

Once we followed the link, we are taken to the website Sportlobster.com, which is a sports social network. Following the instructions, when we clicked the Facebook button on the website, after receiving and accepting the note (from their Facebook app) “Sportlobster will receive the following info: your public profile, friend list, email address, birthday and current city,” we were redirected to joining a Fan zone on their website. The rest of the instructions, comment, like and share, obviously, are to spread their Facebook posts.

The Facebook page has been repeatedly posting these messages ever since it was created on 8 July 2014, even asking users to share them 2-3 times and increase their chance of winning free iPhone 5S. They did not mention any date for lottery draw initially, however, after users raised these questions, they posted:

We are giving 50 Iphones On July 25, 2014
10 Lucky Winners Will Be Announced On July 25

They did not mention the year of announcement, and it would be no wonder if there are no winners declared in the lottery that perhaps does not exist.

About the Facebook Page

The Facebook page titled ‘Iphone 6S Movie Theatre’ seems to be created from Tirana, the capital city of Albania. No other information about the company/service is listed. Note the way ‘Iphone’ is mentioned against the standard style ‘iPhone’, also that iPhone 6S is not yet released (the Facebook page is exploiting the brand interest). Surprising enough, the Facebook page gathered more than 3 million likes as of this writing. Nonetheless, it was deleted later.

So all this concludes to saying the Facebook page ‘Iphone 6S Movie Theatre’ is a Scam that is luring users with free iPhone 5S giveaways in the name of lotteries that only generate traffic and fan base to a sports social network website, install the Sportlobster app and spread the message on Facebook. There won’t be any free giveaways; scams like this only exploit people’s interest in popular new brands like that of iPhone. Facebook has become a powerful social sharing platform, which, unfortunately, scammers often exploit in clever ways. Beware!

Hoax or Fact:

Hoax and Scam.
