iPad 3 For Free? A Scam Circulating On Facebook And Twitter

Most of the good things in life are free, but this doesn’t include a free iPad 3.

What if I ask you: Want a free iPad 3? Want the new iPad 3? and then say I got mine for free from this site www.********.com. It is very likely that you will respond yes to those questions and try to get it for free but this is just a scheme a scam, in order to get something from you.

Scammers are trying to make people believe that they can get an iPad 3 for free but the new Apple device isn’t even available yet. They are using all the social platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and maybe others, to attract people into “liking” a page for free iPads or “clicking” on a website.

Sophos a security company is warning users about this scammers and spammers:  “Of course, one group that isn’t bothering to wait are the spammers and scammers who frequently tempt the unwary into clicking on their links, or completing their revenue-generating surveys, by offering the latest Apple gear.. For free. And even though the iPad 3 doesn’t exist yet (and who can forget the iPhone 5 scams that all looked a bit silly once Apple actually announced the iPhone 4S instead?) we are seeing plenty of examples of Facebook pages and tweets that appear to be attempting to trick users into thinking they can get one for free. As Apple hasn’t even announced the existence of an iPad 3, these posts and pages (some of which have existed for months) are clearly up to no good. It would be great to see social networks like Facebook and Twitter do more to clean up such clearly dubious activity, to better protect their userbase.  Chances are that we will see Apple announce an iPad 3 very soon. But don’t be duped into believing there’s an easy way to get one for free.”

The new iPad 3 will be announced on March 7th at San Francisco. The Apple event will reveal all the new features for this device and other surprises that they prepared for their customers.
