1: To collect as many likes, shares and comments as possible.
Pages with high numbers of likes can later be renamed and used to market dubious products and services to a large audience. Sharing images and adding comments helps to further promote the fake Page thereby collecting even more likes. Once they have gathered a sizable number of likes, the Pages may be sold via the black market. The bogus Pages may also be used for other nefarious activities such as launching further spam and scam campaigns and tricking "winners" into divulging their personal information to scammers.
2: To trick users into participating in bogus surveys.
The link in the "final step" of the bogus promotion leads to a survey scam. Users are told that they must participate in one or more surveys before they will be eligible to receive their voucher. The surveys may offer the chance to win further prizes. But, no matter how many surveys users complete, they will never receive the promised voucher.
Some of the surveys request personal information including name, address and contact details, ostensibly to allow them to go in the draw for a prize. Others invite users to download suspect toolbars, games or software. Still others will claim that users must provide their mobile phone number - thereby subscribing to absurdly expensive text messaging services - in order to get the results of a survey or go in the running for a prize.
The people responsible for these scams will earn commissions via bogus affiliate marketing schemes every time a user completes an offer or participates in a survey. Victims may also receive large phone bills for unwanted mobile phone services and, because they have provided name and contact details, they may begin receiving large amounts of unwanted promotional emails and junk mail.
