Scam Alert: Beware of Facebook and WhatsApp messages offering free airtime and data from Coca-Cola
A message circulating on social media platforms, WhatsApp and Facebook in Nigeria claims Coca-Cola is giving away airtime and data.
According to AFRICA CHECK, the message reads: “COCA COLA IS CELEBRATING 70YEARS IN NIGERIA ANNIVERSARY WITH FREE 5K AIRTIME VOUCHER AND 10GB FREE DATA FOR ALL NETWORKS.”
“Hurry Now And Check If Your account Is Eligible to Recieve Reward, I just got mine foreward to others groups.”
AFRICA CHECK reports that the message links to coca-anniversary-rewards.blogspot.com, a site developed with Google’s free Blogger service. Jamb Result
The message provides several links for Glo, Airtel, MTN, 9mobile, and Mac OS network users to supposedly access the promised airtime and data.

According to AFRICA CHECK, the message’s first link, to coca-anniversary-rewards.blogspot.com, lands on a crudely designed and error-ridden website. The fact that Cola, a multibillion-dollar global business is unlikely to use a free blogging service for its marketing campaign, is a sign that the site is dodgy.
The site asks the user to enter their phone number and network provider, and then to share the page on WhatsApp as one of two steps supposedly required to get the free airtime and data.
AFRICA CHECK reports that the message’s following network user links – for MTN, Airtel, 9mobile, and Glo – all land on pages with the URL zeroquiz.com. The pages are suspiciously similar to Facebook’s login page and ask for the user’s email and password.
This message is likely a scam attempting to hack people’s Facebook accounts and to steal valuable personal information. Information Guide Nigeria
According to AFRICA CHECK, although Coca-Cola has launched celebrations to mark its 70 years in Nigeria, none of the reports on the celebrations mention an airtime and data giveaway, or the sites coca-anniversary-rewards.blogspot.com or zeroquiz.com.
