NEW YORK – Don't expect Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to fill your Christmas stockings– or wallet– with any money this holiday season.
A new scam on the social media platform claims that Zuckerberg is seeking to give away millions of dollars to Facebook users.
This comes nearly a week after Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan announced they would donate 99 percent of their company's stock –valued at $45 billion– to charity in the name of their new daughter Max.
According to the post, thanks to Zuckerberg's "forward-thinking generosity," he plans to contribute 10 percent of his money as a form of gratitude for making "Facebook such a powerful vehicle of connection and philanthropy."
A Facebook spokesperson confirmed to NBC News that it's not true.
It's not the first time a scam campaign has generated false buzz on the popular social media site. One in September claimed Facebook was creating a "dislike" button that could be activated through a special "invite-only" option that required to be clicked on and personal information to be revealed.
