New South Wales Police are reporting a scam from a Facebook page coined ‘Royal Caribbean Australia,’ urging users to be wary.

The Facebook page, that appears to have been live since February 26, claimed to offer a chance for Australian residents to win a cruise by sharing the post and clicking on the link.

According to the NSW Police, the page is fraudulent and has no connection to Royal Caribbean International, an American global cruise line operator.

“The page is a typical survey scam designed to trick you into giving your personal information to dodgy survey sites,” they wrote on Facebook.
