FarmVille Scam Beware: Love Potion Notice
Posted on April 15, 2011 12:21 am by FarmVille Freak MaddMadamMim
The second most popular scam found today is for Love Potions. These scams look just like the normal Love Potion notices, except for a little wording and of course how you go about getting the Love Potion.
Take notice of the “Give Potion Please” text in the title, this looks like it’s written from the poster themselves, but it is not. It’s just another attempt at making everything look legitimate.
If you do happen to click the link your browser will take you to a FaceBook page for FarmVille-Items. This is not a post from the official Zynga FarmVille game!
Are your neighbors repeatedly falling for these recent FarmVille scams? Instead of deleting them from your neighbor’s list, why not share this FarmVille Freak article with them?
Here are some tips provided by Zynga, concerning FarmVille scams:
- Feeds containing art never seen in game are most likely not from FarmVille.
- Feeds containing offers that are never mentioned in game are most likely not from FarmVille.
- Feeds that offer Farm Cash for clicking are never from FarmVille.
- If the icon in the lower left corner of the feed isn’t our corn husk icon, the feed is never from FarmVille.
- If a link is posted by an entity other than FarmVille, and supposedly contains FarmVille content or a redirect to the game, we do not advise clicking on it as we cannot control URL’s that are in anyway removed from our game flows.
“Keeping these guidelines in mind will help assure that your FarmVille experience stays pleasant and fun. Thanks and happy farming!” (Source: Zynga Customer Support)
