A purported link of “Amul 75th Anniversary!!” is being shared on social media with a claim that through the link users can get a chance to win up to $ 3000 if they participate in the survey.
“Amul 75th Anniversary. Click to enter to participate in the survey, have a chance to win $ 3000,” read the Facebook post.
NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE.
Established in 1946, Amul celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2021 but we could not find any such offer/link available on its official website or social media channels.
We opened the link and found that the link did not take us to the official website of the AMUL. Instead, it directed us to a landing page featuring a large image of the AMUL Logo with the text “Congratulations! Amul 75th Anniversary. Through this questionnaire, you will have a chance to get 6000 rupees.”
After answering basic questions like gender and age, we ‘qualified’ and won the cash amount. Following this, we were asked to share the same message with our friends.
We noticed that the website had no other information regarding AMUL. These simple signs were a clear indication that it’s a fraudulent website.
Moreover, AMUL also put out a tweet on October 1, 2021, refuting the viral claim.
The tweet read, “A Fake message is being shared across WhatsApp and other social media with SPAM links. Request you to kindly do not click on this (website) link. We also wish to inform you that Amul is not organising this campaign’.”

Thus, it is evident from the information that the viral link is fake and it is a scam.
