Nike ambassador recruitment campaign A Fake

21 June 2018
Fake news has infiltrated the sportswear world. A new scam tried to trick people into thinking that Nike would be serving up free sneakers and apparel on social media. The scary part is people actually believed it.
An account by the clearly dubious handle @nike_recruitss duped Nike fans into believing that by retweeting a post, they would become an ambassador and go on to cop free Nike gear.
Nike’s response to all the hype was clear and concise: "That is not an authorized Nike account."
So folks, next time something looks too good be true, remember this: if there’s no blue tick it probably is too good to be true.
