More Scams: No Freebies

There was a warning this morning on HLN news about fake offers on Facebook.

You have probably already seen these fake offers and even clicked on them to find a pop up that wants details that you should not even contemplate giving. They ask you to click on a link which they would like you to share with friends.

For this information they will give you a free iPad, tickets on Southwest Airlines or gift card etc. Not true, there are no freebies it is just another scam.

You could be innocently loading a virus on your computer. The information you give them could allow them access to your personal information like your phone information and that could lead to your credit card information. What ever the reason it is a Rip off so do not be tempted by these scamsters.
