Adidas gives Mother’s Day and Labor Day gift on WhatsApp website #fake

Fake – Because of Mother’s Day and Labor Day, Adidas is giving away free gifts to anyone who enters a website, answers questions and shares a link with friends on WhatsApp.

Do not think that it is easy to refute repeated fake news. It’s pretty boring. But, here we are to talk about another one of those rumors that circulate on the internet and, again, uses the name of Adidas. In reality, let’s talk about two of those rumors.

Two messages went viral that point out that Adidas is giving away free gifts. One of the stories points out that the motivation for the promotion would be Labor Day (May 1st). Another of the stories points out that the distribution would be because of Mother’s Day (which takes place in 2021, on May 9).

In both cases, the person would have to enter a website (just for a change, a page with .cn domain), answer some generic questions, participate in a kind of box game and, in the end, share a link with friends on WhatsApp. Read the text on the website:

Adidas gives Mother’s Day and Labor Day gift on website on WhatsApp?

Once again, there was no shortage of shares of Adidas’s “award” message. However, it is not true that Adidas is giving Mother’s Day and Labor Day gifts on a website on WhatsApp.

In fact, we have repeatedly denied false news involving Adidas promotions. The last one at the beginning of April . Another was on International Women’s Day. As the denials of yesteryear are valid for today, remember what was written:

The story is always the same. In reality, the website in question is a fake Adidas website. Even if you enter the site, “open the boxes” (they always say that you “won”) and share the link with friends on WhatsApp, in the end you don’t earn anything. You are directed to a very heavy website that will make your phone or computer crash.

We have already denied many rumors of the type that used the Adidas name: We have already denied stories that talk about donating masks , shoes and t-shirts , “ three thousand sneakers ” and even Flamengo shirts .

As we always do, we looked for the “promotion of Women’s Day” [neither of Labor Day nor Mother’s Day] on the official Adidas website. As always happens in these cases of rumors, we found nothing about shoe distribution for those who share a link with friends on WhatsApp.

In short: it is not true that Adidas is giving gifts because of Mother’s Day or because of Labor Day (which, in fact, should be called Labor Day). It is just a scam using the name of a company managed in this type of fake.
