‘$1000 Nike Gift Card Just In Time For Black Friday’ – Unmasked.
Please send us a Processing Fee so we can give you your ‘$1000 Nike Gift Card Just In Time For Black Friday’! That is basically the scam and this is known as Advanced Fee Fraud or The 419 / Nigerian Scam. A scam so prevalent that Nigeria had to bring into Law Article 419 but of course it still alive and well. They take many forms, the ‘clue’, is when they ask for some kind of fee. I only just noticed the word ‘Conglaturation‘ <- scammer typo done on purpose. More on that soon.
- If you send the fee, which I nearly did once for a swanky holiday from a brochure sent through the post, then you will not get what they are offering. Only they will take your cash. They may ask for more for other reasons but still you will not get what that carrot-on-a-stick.
- Instead, they may hound you with other 419 scams under various names with other fictional scenarios. This is only the surface but the template of this scam remains identical.
- So we see that typo and that is intentional in my view. Why? Well, if you do not notice it then they think you are new to being scammed and can go to work on you. Basically, if you don’t notice it then they think you have no clue what a scam looks like and are gullible. That is not me saying that but that is how they view it.
- Besides, do you really think Nike would send out something so unprofessional and trite as that image above? No – they do provide gift cards but you must pay for them. So you buy those cards with a predetermined amount for someone else to exchange in one of their stores.
- There is no way they are just randomly giving a way a ‘$1000 Nike Gift Card Just In Time For Black Friday’ Sales.
- Have you received this message in your inbox or been approached somewhere online with this fake winning? Do let us know below in the comments to help alert others. We have no idea at this moment how far spread this scam is online but one thing is for sure:- Nike’s website makes no mention of this.
- I linked the word ‘Nike’ in the introduction for you to go straight to their Gift Cards Page on their site and so you may view that yourself as proof this offer is not real.
What do you think about this? Have you given any payment for that offer or did they want all of your personal information instead – or both? So we could be dealing with a phishing scam also along with the Advanced Fee Fraud at play here. We welcome all of your own reviews below to help us all understand better what is going on with this Nike Offer Winner Nonsense Gift Card thing. ‘Conlaturations‘ – you now know this offer is not from Nike and is a fake.
