However, after clicking on the “Adopt the Teacup Pig” link, you will be taken to another Facebook page that is not FarmVille. Note, that this fake share even has the correct spelling and capitalization for the word “FarmVille” located next to the corn icon.

If you accept the fake reward by clicking the blue Yes button, you will then be invited to share a Teacup Pig with your friends as seen in the image below.

Like other recent FarmVille scams, you will not receive your promised prize and you may actually be harming your computer with mal-ware. No matter how cute the reward prize is for these groups are, remember only links directly from FarmVille are trustworthy.

    This is getting crazier everyday.

  2. Jaye Reiser Says:

    I haven’t seen it, but am daily saddened at all of the scam links I see in the Facebook feed

    If you fall for this crap at this point, you deserve whatever you get.

  4. Kimberlee Says:

    I have not seen the Teacup Pig, but I have seen Lucky Pennies and a Cash Cow. what do you know about these? Thanks for your help!

  5. Amber Says:

    there is also a scam on the lucky pennies please watch out for it

  6. Elle Says:

    I don’t know how they can get away with this! How can they use the FarmVille name and logo and not end up in EXTREMELY hot water, to the point of being prosecuted legally? If Zynga took action against them they would be forced to stop and all this nonsense would come to an end! If it were me, I would make SURE that whomever was responsible for these scams ended up behind bars or, at the very least, banned from Facebook so they no longer had access to this stuff.

  7. Jesse Says:

    I see these over and over again and I see neighbors posting them over and over again. I’ve told them over and over again that they are scams!! I give up.

    This same page is also running a scam with the Wishing Well pennies and Rhode Island Red mystery eggs, where it says FarmVille and then takes you to FarmVille Bonus and wants you to like their FB app. There are actually two scams with the pennies that I’ve seen, but the other one doesn’t say FarmVille at the bottom.

  9. Johnnyafc Says:

    Haha with how terrible and rushed the pig looks … does look like one of zygnas

  10. Salena Says:

    I havent seen this one…but agree its getting out of hand. I do think the teacup pig is cute though!

  11. Emma Says:

    What is with the Fan Cow does anyone know, I saw alot of people getting this cow and they say it is real, but the only site that says they give it is also full of posts for cheats.

  12. malecsia Says:

    a new glitch appeared on my farm, and i think it works on every farm… FAN COW bug… if you take a fan cow out and put it back to your dairy farm a message will appear and ask you to share a fan cow to your friends ;)

  13. mdenbeste Says:

    malecsia: Check the FarmVille Forum at Zynga.com. The Fan Cow becoming sharable isn’t a bug. It’s a quietly released bonus.

    so look out for it

  15. Niki Says:

    another scam i have come across is the cash cow one. I knew it was a scam at first, but i have had this one on my feed several times. http://apps.facebook.com/-mysteryegg/?ref=nf

  16. Sneddo Says:

    Some of my Farmville friends post these all the time, So I just delete them for being stupid. Thats the nicest way to describe them,

    I just hate seeing all these post then they write underneath them don’t do it it’s a scam. Then they post more like wtf is wrong with you. As if Farmville will give away unreleased items for free.
