Someone is impersonating Gazeta.pl. You see a fake link – please help

Recently, links have appeared on the Internet – mainly on Facebook – impersonating Gazeta.pl websites. By luring them with sensational headlines, they try to extort data and money from readers. We warn you and ask for help in reporting them.

Texts prepared by fraudsters are most often published as “sponsored posts”. They use the style of Gazeta.pl websites, the names of our authors, but also photos of Polish celebrities who supposedly made a lot of money in a short time by clicking on one link.

How to spot a fake post?

This alone should make the reader anxious, and rightly so – Gazeta.pl absolutely does not encourage investing, and we do not provide financial advice. We are journalists, we provide information and comments, we do not advise on your finances, we do not recommend investment methods.

The second thing to pay attention to is the domain in which the text is published. The scammers’ texts are based on the strangest domains, which are constantly changing, but often contain the word “betting”.

These are not our websites. The websites belonging to Gazeta.pl include all those whose addresses include Gazeta.pl (with a dot), as well as Sport.pl, eDziecko.pl, Plotek.pl, G.pl and Buzz.pl.

What to do when you see an unsafe link on Facebook

We report the links that we identify to CERT and Facebook as violations. But others appear. Therefore, we ask:

If you see a sponsored post on Facebook impersonating Gazeta.pl

  • click on the three dots in the upper right corner of the post and select “report post”
  • then select “advertiser impersonating someone”
  • provide a link to the Gazeta.pl fanpage: https://www.facebook.com/gazetapl

This will let Facebook know that it has false and dangerous ads on its platform.
