Survey Scam

The post, which has been seen in heavy rotation on Facebook, claims that you can enter to win one of 144 free cases of rum to celebrate Captain Morgan’s anniversary. You may have seen a post which looks like this:

Note that the URL isn’t “captainmorgan.com” but “captainmorgan.com-uu.xyz” which is a domain that was only registered in October 2015. The landing page mimics the color scheme of Facebook and immediately asks you to share the post with your friends. It also has a “countdown” of remaining bottles, presumably to hurry you into sharing the page.

Note that if you leave the page open long enough, it will not only count down to zero, but it will continue counting into negative numbers!

Also note that the person who put this site together wrote “71th” instead of “71st.”

After you share the page, you’ll be sent to another website which prompts you you to sign up for a rewards program. In this program, you’ll be required to perform a number of tasks, such as recruit friends, share posts, or make purchases.

You’ll no longer see the Captain Morgan giveaway mentioned, as that was simply a ploy to get you to share their post and sign up for their program. There is no Captain Morgan giveaway.

Bottom Line

The Captain Morgan free rum giveaway is a bogus trick to get you to share their page and sign up for a rewards program. This “program” requires a number of tasks to be performed to get even their most basic “reward.”

It’s a scam.
