Remember last week with the bogus Apple page giving away iPhones that couldn’t be sold because they were “unsealed”, well a page has sprung up that, to us, looks veeeeeeeery familiar.
This time the “we’ve gone crazy and slashed all our prices to zero” warehouse claims to have 569 (Yupp! FIVE HUNDRED AND SIXTY NINE) ghd hair straighteners to give away. All you have to do is like the page and photograph for a chance to win (Remember this phrase!)
The official ghd FB page posted this warning, the page and the giveaway are completely bogus. All you’ll win is a nasty rash for your PC.
TIP: These scams are fairly easy to spot. The sheer number of items that they claim to be giving away is sheer lunacy! What kind of business can afford to give away FIVE HUNDRED of anything just because the boxes are open?
Any page that has offers such as this are more often than not hooked up to that old “dodgy brothers” survey scam that takes your time, information and gives you zip, zilch, nada in return.
Remember that phrase that we told you remember? (read up, we’ll all wait for you!) Pages that offer prizes for “likes” should be avoided or at the very least treated with great suspicion.
