Fancy buying cheap Ray-Ban sunglasses to show off? Your friends on Facebook may have suggested links to stores with great deals, but you shouldn't trust them at all. We recommend being very careful with offers for Ray-Ban glasses on Facebook, because they can put us in danger.
Obviously, if $200 Ray-Ban glasses are advertised for less than $20, many buyers are already expecting to receive a counterfeit. They may be similar on an aesthetic level, but the lenses are not going to be the same, and that can leave your eyes unprotected. The serious thing is that our credit or debit card can also be threatened.
This type of offer usually links to recently created Chinese pages, which do not even encrypt our bank card number Apart from receiving a wrong product (or not receiving it), we may find that our account receives unexpected charges. The worst thing is that Ray-Ban ads on Facebook (or on Instagram) are recommended to us by users who seem legitimate.
And it is that Facebook accounts are being compromised to carry out this unwanted publicity. So on their Facebook profiles there are photos with the offers of fake Ray-Ban glasses and some tagged friends. In addition, it seems that the threat is reaching Spanish-speaking countries. Here is an example of a photo with the offer:
A worrying fraud on Facebook with fake Ray-Bans
The Ray-Ban hoax on Facebook was discovered by the security firm ESET, and recommends changing our password on the social network if these photos appear to us as published by ourselves. And then we will probably want to delete them, of course. If we have made the purchase, we must confirm that no unauthorized charges have been made to us, and it would even be good to cancel the card, because the number could have been leaked.
At the end of 2015 we learned of a hoax that used Ray-Ban glasses as a hook, so the issue is worrying. The truth is that scams do not stop appearing on Facebook, so we recommend beware of Ray-Ban glasses offers on Facebook and with any other offer that is too good to be true.
What do you think of this topic? Are you worried about this offer on fake Ray-Ban glasses on Facebook, or would you never have bought such a product on an unofficial page?
