The new iPad from Apple isn’t even out in stores yet, but scammers are out there waiting to steal your money and identity. In Colorado, the Boulder-Denver Better Business Bureau is warning people not to be fooled by iPad offers that sound to good to be true.
Scammers are sending out e-mails, have web sites and even using Facebook pages offering free iPads. One scammer is claiming that they need testers of the iPad and claim that you can keep the iPad after two months. This site asks for your e-mail address and password. Never give out your password to anyone!
You know you are being scammed when you receive an e-mail offer for a free iPad but they ask you to provide a credit card number. If it is suppose to be free, why do they need your credit card number?
On Facebook once you agree to try the iPad you are tricked into buying cell service.
The best way to get an iPad is to buy it an authorized Apple dealer. Once again, if it is too good to be true, it is a scam. Don’t be fooled, protect you identity and your credit.
