I was about to log-in with my Facebook account, so I typed www.facebook.com in my Chrome browser, but instead of going to the main page of Facebook I went to a page telling me that I win some free gifts amounting to almost 2 thousand dollars. Here is the link that pop-out when I browse Facebook... http://youwin-facebook.com-prizes.com/win/ So I thought it was legitimate since it has a facebook.com in the address, but after clicking the "claim" button, I was send to another page asking me to pay for the service fee. So there I thought it was a scam. here is the link. https://www.5staroutlet.com/crown/v95/weborder.asp?sk=LZXAO1&oid=12345678 I check it with another IP address and it goes the same. So definitely a scam. Be careful about this guys.

From the first second on you should have known it was nonsense. Next time there might be some scam that doesn't require you to pay and you think, 'ah, it's by facebook' and you get all kinds of information stolen. Receiving free prices on the internet is just not real. Free doesn't exist.
