Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “Claim your £250 Argos Voucher” SCAM

Avoid the free £250 Argos Voucher scam on facebook, also going for Amazon Vouchers, similar to the screenshot below:

Facebook WARNING: Avoid the “Claim your £250 Argos Voucher” SCAM

The scam message reads as follows:

Just got a free £250 Argos Voucher
Claim your £250 Argos Voucher Now. (Limited Available)

Why you should Avoid it:

This scam attempts to trick a Facebook user into allowing a rogue application that will end up posting the same message from your Facebook account without their knowledge in order to spread the scam.

As usual, the scam continues with a survey trick to harvest user information and earn the con artist commission. Do not complete any surveys and do not give out any personal information which can and will be used to harm you. Some surveys require you to download something in order to proceed to the next stage, but they usually contain viruses or other malware that can infect your system.
