Claim

The post circulating on Whatsapp claims that Zara is celebrating its 46th anniversary and offering free gifts to customers. A link is also shared alongwith the post.

Investigation

Vishvas News started its investigation by verifying the authenticity of a promotion. We visited the legitimate Facebook page of Zara. We didn’t find any such promotion on the page.

We visited the official website of Zara, www.zara.com and didn’t find any such promotion as claimed in the viral post.

We also searched the Instagram of Zara and no such promotions were made there as well.

When we clicked on the link given in the viral post, it redirected to a page that displayed a message: “Access has been denied because this page may contain potentially illegal content.”

The link in the viral post is not the official link of Zara’s website on any of it’s pages.

We spoke to Sofia from Zara, an official from Zara store, he said: “This is a scam. This promotion is not rolled out from Zara.”

Zara is the fashion clothing brand in Spain with branches and outlets sprawling across the world. The brand has recently completed its 46th Anniversary as it was founded in 1975. But the link in the viral post isn’t legitimate.

Conclusion: Vishvas News investigated and found the viral post to be misleading. The brand has recently completed its 46th Anniversary as it was founded in 1975. But the link in the viral post isn’t legitimate.
