Facebook Santorini holiday scam

Is this Santorini Holidays Vacation Giveaway in Greece Legit?
If a free vacation offer seems too good to be true, it probably is.

The Facebook page "Santorini Holidays" is giving away a free vacation on a Greek island.

False.

On 9 April 2019, the “Santorini Holidays” Facebook page posted a set of picturesque images and claimed that any social media user who commented and shared the post would have a chance to win an all-expenses paid vacation to the “Grand Opening Celebration” of this new hotel in Greece.

For starters, this post provides no basic information about this alleged hotel. Despite reporting that the vacation would take place during the “Grand Opening,” this message does not contain the address of the hotel, a phone number, or even the property’s name.

In short, social media users who share and comment on the Santorini Holidays Facebook page’s “Grand Opening Celebration” giveaway post should not expect to win an all-inclusive vacation to Greece.
