Rochester – Beware of HOAX Smoak BBQ Facebook Page
They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but in this case, its just a total scam. A fake SMOAK BBQ Facebook Page has popped up. The REAL SMOAK Facebook page posted...
Attention Smoak fans. We have someone out there with way to much time on their hands impersonating us. Notice how their name is Smoak’bbq, this is not us. If you receive something like the message below PLEASE do not open it and report it as a scam. Thank you to those of you that let us know.
Here's what was posted...
and how the real SMOAK responded...
I can't find the fake page now, so it could have been taken down by Facebook, but we all know Facebook and it could still be alive and well, so watch out for it. The tell is the little punctuation mark between SMOAK and BBQ.
