Jobs's Death Brings Out Facebook Scammers

By Sam Gibbs on at

Some people have no scrupules. Scammers are already capitalising on the passing of Steve Jobs with a fake Facebook iPad giveaway that's conned some 15,000 gullible people.

The utterly bogus competition claims to have 50 iPads to give away in memory of his Jobsness -- something that's actually banned by Apple even if it were true. So remember kids, evil people are everywhere and don't give away your valuable personal information to just anyone... unless of course their giving away Angry Birds plushies. [Sophos via The Register]
