Cutest Baby Contest Scam

Cutest Baby Contest Scam: How It Works

If you are a parent, chances are you think your child is the cutest out there. Nothing to be blamed about, we all do it. Unfortunately, scammers know it as well.

The Cutest Baby Contest Scam is targeting parents and grandparents on Instagram and Facebook, same as another notorious one, the Mystery Box Scam. The crooks post this fake competition on Facebook and Instagram and give victims a chance to enter a photo contest for a fee. The scam continues when you are announced (along with all the other few hundred parents who submitted pictures) to be the winner! Then you are given the option to pay another fee in order to get a copy of a “cutest baby” book, with your child on the cover, as the winner.

Needless to say, you won’t receive any book or any refunds. But that’s not all.

    1. I also registered wid cutest baby of india,but wen i call them they say the agent is fired from the company….wat was my fault in this

  1. I would stay away from Baby Vote and My aunt is not happy! I wanted to surprise her but well, you live and learn.

  2. My daughter entered the bidiboo cutest baby contest and a gentleman wrote his pockets are deep regarding votes he is purchasing. This is not appropiate and should be removed.

  3. AN ABSOLUTE scam and disappointed I fell for it. Buying votes to win? That doesn’t make you the cutest baby it makes you " feel good parents!" Sad.

    We participated in cutest baby competition( We received tremendous support in public voting and got highest number of votes in contest. According to rules of competition, our baby should have been declared as winner. But they declared winner who was at 5th position. Even they didn’t provide any explanation after writing multiple emails. There is no transparency in competition. Its like black box. Organisers are biased.
