Don’t be Blinded by the Promise of a Free Pair of Oakleys…It’s a Facebook Scam!

Consumers are told that they can get a free pair of Oakley sunglasses for a limited time just by sharing or liking the provided link.

Unfortunately, if something sounds too good to be true, it almost always is and these widespread messages are actually scams. The link leads to a page which tries to trick you into sharing it further amongst your Facebook friends and you don’t end up with a new pair of sunglasses.

Don’t let your excitement for something “free” cloud your judgment and common sense. If you accidentally participated in the scam, remove the message from your newsfeed and delete any messages you may have inadvertently shared with your friends.
