Sneaker scams come in all shapes and forms — and they’re not always about fake sneakers. Doing the rounds on social media, a fake Nike recruitment campaign promising free sneakers and apparel has caught out a number of aspiring ‘influencers’.
Bogus advertisements have been shared by accounts like @nike_recruitss, asking users to follow and repost the image in order to become a Nike ambassador. Sounds totally legit to us.
Nike have debunked the campaign on Twitter, but did they really need to? Who the heck spells recruits with two Ss?
That is not an authorized Nike account. Let us know if we can help you with anything else.
