Wetherspoon fans are being warned not to fall for a scam being promoted on Facebook - appearing to offer users vouchers for free meals.

Wetherspoon famously closed down all its social media activity in 2018 - meaning any account you see on Facebook will be fake.

Users are asked to like and share the post with your friends.

Users are asked to click a button to enter their details and claim their prize.

It is unclear what happens to your details once you have handed them over.

A Which? spokesman said: "Signing up to fake competitions and giveaways can lead to tracking cookies being added to your web browser. This can prime Facebook users to be targeted by more spam ads from the people running the pages.

"Users who have interacted with these pages can be caught in a vicious cycle where ‘likes’ inflate the popularity of the page, promoting it so it’s seen by more people."

Which? says it has reported a number of pages to facewnook and they have been removed.

Wetherspoon’s website states: "Wetherspoon does not use any social media. Any promotions on social media which appear to be from Wetherspoon are, therefore, unofficial and fake – so please do not participate or share your details with such adverts.

"‘We will continue to report fake pages and do apologise for any inconvenience caused by these unassociated spam accounts."

Which has a guide on what to do if you spot a scam.
