A fake account claiming to be Oprah Winfrey promises thousands of dollars for shares and likes
Oprah is mostly famous for her talkshow and acting career. Her estimated wealth is 2.8 billion dollars, says Forbes. Of course she opens a private Facebook account, misspells her own name and gives away thousands of dollars every couple of hours, right??
„Hello good people, if you see this post, Share Now. This is Special from me (Oprah Winfrey), I will give $ 1,000,000 to anyone who shares and comments on this post. You can win a lot of money prizes, lots of opportunities waiting for you today.
** SHARE NOW **
Note: For those of you who downloaded my movie, there is a great chance to win the grand prize“

What this page is about
This page is obviously fake. It works in two ways: First, attracting new users by promising money. Next, baiting them into clicking the link to the “movie”. Are you really able to download the movie for free?

This profile is 100% fake and a phishing trap. Fans of Oprah are being tricked into clicking suspicious links and give away their data!
