FACEBOOK users in Gedling borough have been sharing a hoax post on the social network which suggests founder Mark Zuckerberg is to give away millions of his cash to users.
The fake post currently doing the rounds claims that Facebook founder Zuckberberg is to dish out £2.7million to 1,000 users.
It claims that all the user has to do is copy and paste a message on their timeline, and share it with five to ten friends.
Dozens of these messages have been spotted on the Facebook walls of users across the borough hoping to receive a share of the cash up for grabs.
Like many of these messages that circulate on social media, it’s all a con to attempt to cause chaos on the site.
A spokesperson for Action Fraud, which is the UK’s national fraud and internet crime reporting centre, told Gedling Eye: “Mark Zuckerberg is not giving millions of dollars to Facebook users who just copy and paste this message.”
