H&M is not giving out $500 gift card on Facebook

Some of you might have seen the Facebook contest where you just share a page, Type Thanks H&M and get a free $500 Gift Card from H&M. Well, sorry to break your heart but that’s a fake.

HMGiftCardHoax

This is not the first time we see something like this. I remember seeing a Starbucks and Apple version. The biggest giveaway is the URL. Most company won’t hold contest on a weird URL. They will most likely do it on their own website.

H&M also clarified on their Facebook page that this is not organised by the company.

So please stop sharing that page on your Facebook. H&M is not giving out $500 gift card on Facebook.

IKEA recalls ANTILOP children chair

IKEA is recalling its popular ANTILOP high chair due to fall hazard. The children chair’s belt buckle can open unexpectedly when in use, creating a fall hazard. So far, there has been eight reports, including three resulting in minor injury when a child fell from the chair.

According to IKEA, only ANTILOP high chairs from supplier #17389 with production dates 0607-0911 (YYMM) are affected. The supplier number and production date are moulded into the underside of the seat.

Customers with the affected ANTILOP chairs can contact IKEA Customer Service at 6786 6868 or visit the Exchange and Returns Counter for a free replacement belt.

Online Scam: Free Starbucks $50 Gift Card

There’s another online scam going around Facebook now. The scammers are offering $50 Starbucks Gift Card after you click the Share button and say “I Love Starbucks!”. There are several variant hosted on different URL.

This is very similar to the Apple iPad giveaway scam few weeks ago. The biggest hint that this is a fake is the URL. It is very unlikely that Starbucks (or any big company) will do giveaway with a dodgy URL. And the logo is wrong too. That’s the old Starbucks logo.

Starbucks Singapore Facebook page also confirmed that they are not behind the giveaway.

I still don’t know what’s the motivation behind the scammers. Are they doing it for fun or did they managed to steal your personal information when you click on the share button. Anyone know?
