$66mill Winner Gives CASH For Followers
The Great Instascam!
Was it too good to be true?… Instagram account kelseyzachow_66 appeared overnight
with an image of Kelsey Zachow, winner of Michigan’s ‘Mega Millions’ lottery
- taking home an alleged $66,000,000 USD.
The first instagram post had the comment “My dreams have been answered 😍😍🙏🙏. RESHARE and leave your freakn email!!”
Then things got interesting…
The instagram account asked people to:
- Follow the instagram account
- Send an email with your email address
- Check your email, and apparently you then receive $1000 USD
The Instgram profile description read “God blessed me & I want to donate $1000 to the first 75k followers, that (sic) shout me out, then comment your email”.
While this article was written the Instagram account sat at 71K followers - leaving 4,000 people to apparently receive cash.
Interestingly, one of the posts included a screenshot of the official MTV account endorsing the promise “Follow @Kelseyzachow_66 on instagram.. She’s giving $1000 dollars to the first load of followers #BlessHer”.
Updated: the account changed to http://instagram.com/ashleykat555777 and posts were deleted.
Have YOU been scammed online?
