Investigation

Vishvas News started its investigation by searching for any contests that Tata Motors had recently organised. We did not find any such contests on their official website. We further searched news articles mentioning any such content, no such news articles were published recently citing any such contest.

We further searched and found posts from Tata Motors Cars’ official Facebook and Twitter accounts stating that ‘it has come to our attention that certain posts in the guise of contests and free merchandise from Tata Motors are being circulated on social media with the malicious intent of enabling data pilferage and phishing of anyone who opens the links…

We then checked the link given in the viral post. The link in the viral post http://virginitycompassion.top/Tatamotorsasy/tb.php?pfdpvrmy1654529988090 is different from the official website link of Tata Motors tatamotors.com. The link asks multiple survey questions and prompts readers to share it with more friends on whatsapp.

We also found a post on Facebook where a user tagged Tata Motors stating that the post seemed fraudulent. In response, Tata Motors replied: ‘Thank you for reaching out to us. Tata Motors has not announced any such contest and we deny any association with such schemes. We strongly suggest that such fraudulent messages should not spread further on social media. Please refrain from clicking or engaging with such links/messages.’.

Vishvas News contact Shantanu from the customer service department of Tata Motors. He said that the viral post is fake and the link is suspicious. Tata Motors has not announced any such contest and we deny any association with such schemes.

Conclusion: The post claiming Tata Motors offering Tata safari in the contest by clicking on a link is a scam. The link given in the post is fraudulent and readers should avoid clicking on such links.
