Have you ever heard the saying “If it seems too good to be true then it probably is” well these are words to live by. There has been a lot of fake Disney Contests and Scams on Facebook lately. Before you share a Facebook link make sure to do your research, because we wouldn’t want to promote a scam to our friends.
A lot of this common sense… If a Facebook page that is labeled with a big corporations name like Delta, or American Airlines, or Southwest we know these are huge airlines that have been around longer than I have, so they would not have only a few thousand likes on Facebook, most have several hundred thousand.
Of course whatever you see on Chip & Co is legit. We do our research and would never post anything that we are not sure about. Anyone can say “trust me” but we have a good reputation. In the world of blogs reputation is everything. Heck Chip even put it in our slogan. Disney Park News, Planning Tips, Giveaways, and more…
What it boils down to is just be careful and always double and triple check everything. Don’t be afraid to click on the links and check out the page. Just because a few hundred people are doing it doesn’t mean it’s legit. Investigate before you Like, Comment, or Share, and remember Google is your friend!!
When you find a fake contest report it to Facebook. Before long the page will disappear and you can go back to reading the best in Disney News here on Chip and Co!
Wishing you Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust
