    Hello all!

    Have you ever created macbook giveaway for facebook likes? And then just choose fake profile as winner?

    Is this a crime and can some one punish me (facebook etc.)?

    Yes this is fraud, whether it's a crime and how serious it is depends on your region.

    Where I am right now it is punisheable with up to 14 years in jail.

    Yeah man I tried it once.

    It worked a TINY bit for me. But for others it works wonders, and still others it does nothing for them. I guess it all depends on the person (and their friends) who shares your status/ photo. A lot of people don't believe this anymore. It's best to share it on a page called ".Apple.Computers-" or something like that. I've seen that happen and the photo absolutely blew up!

    It's not a crime (at least I don't think it is). If it was a crime then there would be some serious questions raised about the wasted time an officer would put in to catching these Facebook updates. There is no damage to the state done and no-one is getting robbed of any money. It's only a like.

    Good luck.

    Yeah works great for some. Try some other prizes that people really want. Giftcards are great to $100 Itune card, etc
    Its not a crime at all. No one at all knows that you are giving away nothing to a fake profile. Iphones work wonders for a prize also. Go for certain niches like golf and giveaway a set of Ping Clubs, build a nice page about golf and profit

    Its not really a crime, but if you are planning to build up an authority website and people get to find out that you have given out any prizes for real, it would badly affect your reputation.

    Also, once the giveaway is over, a lot of people would start unliking your page.

    TECHNICALLY it is fraud and considered a crime. But it's quite difficult to catch if you get a friend in on it and "give it away" to your friend.

    There's no way they could prove that you created the fake account if you're careful with it, I wouldn't do it though it's a scumbag move.

    Pretty much this.. they have no real way of proving it. Even if they can prove the account in question is fake they would need probable cause to get a search warrant to pull ips from the internet companys.. All in all you're fine they aren't going to waste time on such a petty crime that would require as much effort as it would require unless you're profiting millions of dollars off of it or something.
