$750 Cash App Facebook Scams Feature Nikki Haley, Snoop Dogg and Paula Deen


Nikki Haley, Snoop Dogg, Paula Deen and others from the worlds of entertainment and politics are offering $750 prizes in the Cash App funding application.

Fact check

Facebook giveaways that promise $750 or other large cash prizes in the Cash App funding app will pretty much always be scams. We found at least three cash app In early June 2022, fraudulent giveaways that claimed multiple $750 prizes were offered by former United Nations Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, rapper Snoop Dogg, and celebrity chef Paula Deen.

The pages for Haley, Snoop Doggand Dean all used both their image and likeness without their permission, and appeared like this:

All of the pages that promised $750 in Cash App also used specific wording that we had seen with other scams that appeared to involve scammers from outside the United States. We have removed the scammer’s website link from the sample text below:

CONGRATULATIONS for those of you who received feedback from me were selected as winners
Step 1 = Like and Share
Step 2 = “DONE” Comments
Step 3 = Register here (link removed) receive my prize. And the gift will be sent after your successful registration (it’s genuine and official) God bless you
Good luck

The links in these Facebook giveaways all led to surveys on fraudulent websites. The Facebook posts appeared to have been created by people acting as affiliate marketers who were trying to make money by driving traffic to fraudulent websites. We found affiliate ID numbers in full website addresses resulting from Facebook posts.

It might be possible to take a lot of surveys on these scam websites and end up receiving something in return. However, these survey websites often require users to jump through various hoops to do so, all of which are usually spelled out in fine print on terms and conditions pages. For the number of hours and concentration that would be required to get any reward, we recommend our readers not to waste their time.

The American Association of Retirees (AARP) and the United States Better Business Bureau (BBB) ​​both have published pages with advice on how to avoid survey scams and what to look out for. Basically, proceed with caution before taking a survey on an unknown website. Some of these websites will ask users to sign up for free trials of various products which, in effect, will charge them recurring fees in the future. Also, keep in mind that if the reward seems too good to be true (like $750 in Cash App), it probably is.

Bottom line, no, Haley, Snoop Dogg, and Deen were not giving away $750, or any other prize amount, in Facebook giveaways in the Cash App, or any other notable entertainment or political figures.
