Have you received a link that says Jollibee is giving away prizes for its 40th anniversary? Beware! It is not from a legit source. NO, Jollibee is not giving out free gifts and cash for its 40th anniversary celebration.
This reviews exposes everything you need to know about the Jollibee 40th anniversary message circulating on social media, and why it is a scam.
Why It’s a Scam:
First of all, the Filipino fast food chain ‘Jollibee’ was founded in 1978, so it is 43 years not 40 years. Secondly, there’s no information about any giveaway on the official social media pages of Jollibee.
Meanwhile, a close look at the websites offering the anniversary prize show it’s not from the official Jollibee website which is jollibee.com.
Of a truth, the giveaway message was created by fraudsters who want to steal your personal and financial information. So how do they intend to scam you?
After completing the survey, you’d be taken to a phishing/malicious website. There, you’ll be made to provide your personal details/ credit card information for ‘processing fee’ and whatnot.
These scammers will remove every dollar in your bank account.

- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/JollibeePhilippines
- Website: https://www.jollibee.com.ph/
