A Facebook scam is using the name of Rapper MattyB to lure thousands of unaware users to a malicious website. The MattyB Facebook scam claims that MattyB is about to give 100000 dollars and a new car to a lucky MattyB fan. The Facebook scam claims that the MattyB fan only needs to perform a couple of actions before they can participate in the MattyB 100000 Dollar and a new car Facebook campaign.
The MattyB post which claims that the fans are able to win a prize is a fake page which has no association with the official rapper. The Facebook scam has been launched by the scammers to phish personal information from unaware users, the scammers also use the unaware users to increase their likes and shares on Facebook.
The scam on Facebook
The scam is currently hosted on the https://www.facebook.com/MattyBOfficial1 page which is still public. The scam has already been liked by 30000 people and it has been shared around 44000 times.
The MattyB Facebook scam uses the following text to lure the unaware users to the malicious page:

As you can see from the MattyB Facebook scam example above, the unaware users are instructed to perform various steps.
The Official MattyB campaign
On the official MattyB Facebook page, you can see that there is no active campaign which promises the fans a chance on 100000 dollar or a free Lexus car. It is sad to see that the name of MattyB is being used by scammers to infect and lure unaware internet users.
If you take a look at the official website of MattyB, you will get the same information. There is no active campaign which promises the fans of MattyB a chance on winning price money or a car.
