Summer Safari Water Park on Facebook is a scam

By Alan Ng - Apr 4, 2016

As we build up to another fun filled Summer, it looks like scammers are also doing their best to try and ruin your Summer fun in an attempt to withdraw hard earned money from your wallet.

We have been made aware of the fact that there is a Summer Safari Water Park scam on Facebook which is currently trending at the moment, attracting thousands of users in the process.

The scam involves a Facebook page that has been set up and duplicated several times, with the pages being identical except for the location being changed – Bournemouth, Durham and Plymouth were some examples that we had seen ourselves.

This event is promising a water park event right on your doorstep and we’re assuming that once enough ‘interest’ has been gathered, the page will then prompt you to give out your personal information in order to book tickets.

The issue here is that a mobile number form will almost certainly be required and this will lead to you losing money with the scammers setting up a premium subscription service which you cannot get out of.

Given that thousands of unsuspecting consumers have already fallen for the trap, we advise you to drop all interest that you may have already given for these water parks.

As far as we’re aware, the picture that has been used on every single page is actually from a water park in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Unless the organisers plan to travel at the speed of light, Water Park dates landing in the space of one day apart in different UK cities should have already raised alarm bells – seriously, what were you thinking?

Make sure your friends and family do not get scammed themselves and be weary of the Summer Safari Water Park Tour UK scams that continue to trick users this week.
