The recent holiday festivities still have some daunting effects on some people; the food and alcohol binging, and the overspending along with scores of maxed out credit cards are just a few.

Those are some of the headaches that many people still have to deal with long after the love and joy of Christmas and welcoming the New Year is far behind them. However, for those small yet arduous feats, we oftentimes need a little relaxation and perhaps something free to reward us for our festive kindness.

56,000 signed up for promotion on Facebook

In this case, 56,000 people thought they would receive just that when they fell prey to a fake Ryan Air promotion on Facebook.

The contest was set up as a Ryanair giveaway but turned out to be a fake account.

With the four little words of “Beat the January Blues” many people took notice, especially adding that they were offering a free holiday package for a total of 4 persons to an all-inclusive resort. The Ad further went on to state that the winners would be able to select any destination where they would like to spend their vacation.

Furthermore, the heart-warming post stated that the recipients should only expect to relax and enjoy their deserving vacation special. A whopping 10 nights would be the time of stay and all meals along with drinks would be on the house.To further sweeten the deal, it also declared that taking off from work was no problem because the winners get to choose when they want to take up the offer.

Giveaway offers free spending money with all inclusive vacation

Another fabulous prize was added to the exciting trip; this time they would also give the vacationers $5,000.00 cash in spending money. Now, with that said, that would be enough to get any warm-blooded human being to fall head over heels with this magnificent giveaway.

However, this contest did not go over well with the official Ryanair Airline as a spokesperson for the organization reported that the contest was not set up by the company. The fake contest had the company's hotline buzzing with questions about the scintillating getaway to paradise, which was later removed after it was reported to Facebook.
