Fake Farmville Gifts

How to spot fake farmville gifts on facebook…

This guide targets something that I have been meaning to address for a long time now. Although the intentions of people sending these gifts are probably good, I think that many people are fooled into believing that they are helping their friends and neighbors out by sending fake farmville gifts. I understand that it is very confusing to distinguish which gifts are actually real farmville gifts and which ones are fake, so my intention is to assist you in making that differentiation before sending the fake gifts to friends, accepting them, or even posting them on a friends wall. These gift apps on facebook that were created with the sole intention of fooling players of the farmville game, even use the actual pictures of the real farmville, to make it hard to tell which is real.

As you can see in the picture above, these all look like actual gifts that can be used in the farmville game, but they are all fake. The only thing that you can do with these gifts is look at them on your wall, therefore slowing down and cluttering facebook for no reason.

I have had many friends and neighbors asking where to find their gifts that were recieved from these gift apps, because they wanted to use them in the game “farmville”. The answer is that you cannot, they are in no way affiliated with the actual Farmville application.

Here are some of the fake farmville gift apps.

I’m sure that many your farmville friends and neighbors are unaware that these gifts that they are sharing with you are fake, and their intentions are truly pure, so please share this page with them in the comments when they share one of thesegifts with you. If we all work together and get the word out, we will inform many people of the fact that the gifts are not real, and we will then have less fake gifts to delete from our walls and less fake gifts to ignore.

Tip to spot them quickly: If you hover over the link and it is not http://apps.facebook.com/farmville/ (Ie ends with farmville-vfaflkasd ramdom jibberish or if farmville is mispelled)
