Fact Check: Viral Message Claiming That Tata Group Is Giving A Car On Its 150th Anniversary Is FAKE

A purported link of  “Tata Groups 150th Anniversary Celebration!!” is being shared on social media with a claim that through the link, users can get a chance to win a car after they participate in the event.

“Tata Groups. 150th Anniversary Celebration!! Click on the link to participate in the event to win a car! ! ! !” the post read.

Here’s the link to the above post. More such links can be seen here and here.

FACT CHECK

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE.

We opened the link and found that the link did not take us to the official website of the Tata group. Instead, it directed us to a landing page featuring a huge image of a car with the text, “Congratulations! Tata Groups. 150th Anniversary Celebration! Through the questionnaire, you will have a chance to get Tata Nexon EV.”

After answering basic questions like gender and age, we ‘qualified’ and won a car. Following this, we were asked to share the same message with our friends.

We noticed that the website had no other information regarding the Tata group. These simple signs were a clear indication that it’s a fraudulent website.

Moreover, the Tata Group also put out a tweet on October 1, 2021, refuting the viral claim.

“#FakeNotSafe Tata Group or its companies are not responsible for this promotional activity. Please do not click on the link and/or forward it to others,” the tweet read. 

Also, the Tata Group which was established in 1868 celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018 itself.

Earlier NewsMobile had debunked several similar claims which were being shared in the name of other companies like Amazon, Flipkart and Hermès.
