Did you come across a Pop-up either on YouTube or Facebook that tells you to ‘Claim 1k from Mr Beast? Are you wondering if the giveaway offer is genuine or fake? Will you win free 1000 when you complete the tasks? I’m sorry to burst your bubble! It’s all a scam.

Mr Beast $1000 Giveaway Pop-Up: Why It’s a Scam

Below are reasons why the giveaway promo is a full-fledged scam.

  • Mr. Beast would never pay for a promotion or ad in YouTube. Heck, he already has millions of subscribers. So why pay YouTube for promotion?
  • The website offering the promo was created recently and will be expiring so soon
  • It is not secured with SSL encryption. This means your financial and personal information are not safe
  • The person who created the website has clearly hidden his details. If it was indeed Mr Beast I know for sure he wouldn’t be anonymous.

How Does The Scam Works?

After clicking ‘Claim Now’ you’ll be redirected to a different page were you’ll be told to complete 2 free offers in order to redeem your $1000. But when you attempt yto visit the website, your browser (If you’re using a secured one) will flag as ‘UNSAFE’.

If you continue, you’ll be made to submit your personal details and answer some cheap questions. However, when you complete the survey you wouldn’t receive a dime. Of course, the free $1000 is just a sham. At the end of the day you’ll receive couple of suspicious looking mails. So clearly, the $1000 giveaway is not legit or real. The giveaway is fake.

If you stumbled on such offer either on YouTube, Facebook or elsewhere just have it at the back of your mind that it’s fake.
