Fake ‘Manny Pacquiao’ Facebook Page Promising 60 Free Houses Goes Viral in the Philippines

A Facebook community page called “Sen. Manny Pacquiao” blew up hours after the Filipino boxer’s win against Lucas Matthysse by promising free properties to 60 people.

To win the houses and lots, netizens were required to take three simple steps. They must “like” the page, share the post, and comment “congrats” underneath it.

In just 11 hours, the post — which was later taken down — garnered more than half a million shares and over 225,000 likes.

Unsuspecting netizens hopeful to win one of the properties shared stories of their plight in the comments section:

“Congrats. We really need a house, Sen. Manny Pacquiao. Our house has a lot of holes [in the roof]. We get wet every time it rains.”


“Congrats Sen. Manny Pacquiao… I hope to be one of those chosen for your housing so we can have our own home … My children live with my sibling while I work for their education. I’m widowed.”

“Congrats Sir Manny … God picked you. Now I wish to be picked so that we no longer have to sleep in other people’s house. I wish to be lucky, you are my hope to reach my dreams.”

“I returned from Saudi Arabia. I only lasted [working] there for a year because I received bad treatment from the son of the family I’m working for … If ever I am chosen I will be in huge gratitude… Our house is already too dangerous to live in because of termites and my husband is only earning enough that we cannot afford to have it fixed.”
