Is Facebook Bonanza a Scam?

facebook bonanza scamHave you recently been on Facebook and have seen ads claiming that Facebook now has a work from home program?

Do you really think one of the most profitable companies in the world needs to run ads to hire people?

Facebook is turning away hundreds of people a year who want to be employed at Facebook but yet some of us have fallen for this Facebook Bonanza scam.

Of course, who wouldn’t want to work for one of the largest companies in the world and better yet work for this company from the comfort of our own home?

 

What is Facebook Bonanza?

I am sure you have come across ads for this company. “Are you addicted to social media and want to make hundreds a week from Facebook?” That would be great but the truth is, Facebook Bonanza is not connected to FACEBOOK at all. These two companies have no affiliation at all. But, that would be fine as long as there was still a path to learning how to social media market and earn money from Facebook.  This company does not have a plan of action to teach you, it just has ridiculous promises of how much money you can make without any training involved.

If there is no training how are you going to make $397 a day? How in the hell are you going to make $14,000 a month with a work from home program that has 0 training?

How about you take a look at this work from home program. It is a much better option and you will not get ripped off.

 

How this scam works

Facebook Bonanza will lead you to believe you can make thousands of dollars with this program. This scam almost gets you to believe there are limited positions and exclusive access. I am sorry to tell you but this is a trick.

When you click on the website and open the application page, you will be instructed to enter in your information. Name, email, address, that is to “check availability” of positions with this program.

On the next page, you will see a confirmation on being “accepted” into this work from home program. This is where you will have the option to download the ‘Facebook Millionaire’ kit to begin and it is only $4. What this program does not tell is that you will be charged $94 every single month until you cancel your account.

You most likely will not be able to reach customer support or find any way to close your account once this scam has your credit card information. You will need to call your credit card provider to cancel that card.

 

Fake news that promotes Facebook Bonanza

As facebook bonanza is a scam, it needs to be promoted with scam tactics to try to lure you into believing this con. The way this scam grew a lot of attention was by “news” outlets stating this is a great new work from home program from Facebook.

As we know Facebook has no affiliation with Facebook Bonanza, this has to be forged.

This is not a real click take from a news channel. It is multiple clicks edited and photoshopped to make it appear as it is a real news story.

This is a fake new presentation about Facebook Bonanza.

All you have to do is go to Fiverr and you will find people willing to create a fake news story for you. It costs a minimum of $5 and is how scam artists operate. They just make things up to trick us into believing their con is actually worthwhile.

  1. I have never heard of Facebook Bonanza but it is really scary that there are things out there like this. That is a lot of money for nothing. I like when sites let you do a trial for free.

    At least credit cards allow you to do a dispute I guess!

    1. The problem with a program like this is that it is very easy for them to change their name. All they need to do is change the ad. Change the landing page and they are back to scamming. If you see ads for work with Facebook, it is best to do research before you send them your personal information.

  2. I think I’ve seen those Facebook Bonanza ads or at least something similar, I always thought they sounded too good to be true, and now I know. It’s so hard to really know who to trust and I appreciate your write up about the alternative Wealthy Affiliate.

  3. Hi Kurtis,

    Many thanks for sharing this post. I had never heard about this Facebook Bonanza and it’s good to know that it’s a scam. I came across other online “get rich quick” scam programs and they all seem to operate in a similar way. I wonder if there is no online regulation for this sort of thing? How Facebook could allow something like that to happen? This is the worst kind of plagiarism and it should have a way to sue the people behind it.
    Thank you again for sharing.

    1. Marta,

      I am sure Facebook will try to do something about this. Possibly block those ads on their platform but when I was looking I could not find the actual owners of this scam. So, maybe Facebook knows exactly who they are and will shut them down.

  4. Hi Kurtis!

    Can’t believe that some people will try to scam you in this way. Thank you for rising the awareness. Great article, I believe that more people should read it before they would take any rush decisions. Does Wealthy Affiliate sign-up require any credit card details?

    1. Andrei,

      That is the problem with most scams is that they have a way to create a sense of urgency so you do not do any further research and buy in right away. The good thing about WA is you do not have to have a credit card to sign up. It is a free account, just a valid email and your name and username of your choice.

  5. Hi Kurtis,

    Thanks for pointing this out and bring this scam to my attention. It’s sad that people take advantage of others who want to work hard and try to make a better life for themselves and their families.

    Thanks

    Sean
