Apple iPad Scam

Apple iPad ScamIn the SPAMfighter lab, we’ve seen a huge increase in Apple related spam emails. Spammers appear to be working day and night to earn money, and when they see this kind of “opportunity”, they jump on it.

However, because our users report spam day and night, due to our large worldwide audience in all time zones, SPAMfighter blocks all new spam messages, even before the spammers release the “Send” button.

Update –  iPad scam – April 2, 2012
We have received reports in the comments of this post of a huge iPad phone scam going on now with Apple’s recent release of “the new” iPad.  According to reports, people are receiving automated phone calls and text messages with instructions on how to claim a free iPad. One particular scam reads, “Apple is looking for people to Text & Keep the New iPad 3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner.info and enter code BETA will receive it!”. Other messages claims that “Ipad 3 testers wanted” which is of cource also bogus.

Be weary of any calls or messages from unknown numbers, especially if you haven’t signed up for any contests.  Please tell us your story below if you are also receiving these iPad scam phone calls.

Update – iPad scam – April 20, 2012
New round of these ipad 3 scams seems to be going on. They are still using the “New Ipad 3” angle and it’s still bogus. Thank for the additions to the phone number list. We will update shortly….

Update – iPad scam – January 4, 2013
Scammers are active early 2013. We saw a Ipad for christmas scam in december but the volume is much higher in January.

  2. Stephen says:

    I received my spam attempt via a text message from 718-715-8025 at 4:50 in the morning. Not only is it a garbage message, they woke me up to deliver it. Thanks for that, lol.

  3. Tracy says:

    I also received via a text at 12:36AM…..like Stephen says! Middle of the night I thought something was wrong with someone. My text came from 718-687-7348. These people are getting tricky…since some contests are now via text you really need to pay attention to what you sign up for and if you elect to be notified via a text.

  4. Nikki Elliott says:

    thanks!

  5. Falkner says:

  7. Phillip says:

    I also received a text spam about an ipad 3 test and keep contest. The number for the text is 718-687-7348. Figured it was a scam as soon as I saw the message since I don’t give out my cell phone for contest unless I know they are legit sites ones for tv stations or radio programs.

  8. Jan says:

    I also received a text spam from text 646-620-6846. Received last month at 11:29P PCS. Erased message…positive it is not a legit site.

  12. Fran says:

  16. Crystal says:

    Mine came at 12:50 a.m. EST from 760-616-0690. Looks like they are using different phone numbers to “fool” us. I hate to know what happens if you use the hyperlink and enter “7777” code… Thank you for hosting this site!!

  17. JD says:

    February 24, 2012 3:23am from 760-616-0690 text ipad3winner.info

  19. Kelli says:

  20. pam says:

    I got this text this morning at 10:08 am est, The number is 209-327-6647, Wondering who sold my #.

  21. Beth says:

    I received two this morning on my cells (work and personal) for a free iPad 3, only first 1000 users that go to ipad3winner com code 7777. ATT is the carrier for both. One # is 831-254-8931 and the other 831-707-4607. There is no iPad 3. Lots of rumors, etc. but even Apple hasn’t said anything specific about release dates and given their past promotional history, we’d have heard of something by now.

  22. carey says:

    text message at 9:13 a.m. mountain time from 209-327-6274. Kind of knew it was spam as they can not even spell correctly.

  23. nicole says:

    I got this text from 12092777515. Also said to enter 7777.

  24. Sherri says:

  25. Amanda says:

    I received a spam text to win the new iPad3. I knew it was spam because it cam from a number I did not know (760-616-0690) @ 3:29 am EST.
    Not sure why I got this message, or how my number got on a spammer list…
    How do I prevent receiving other messages like this???

  26. Andi says:

    I got a text this morning from 760-616-0557, enter 7777 and win a free ipad3. Mine came at 9:27 am, but still annoying!

  27. Michael says:

    My wife recieved a text message from this number 17606160690 saying Apple was looking for iPhone5 testers. It’s NOT from Apple. When you follow the link, it takes you to Online Gift Gadgets and it’s one of those sites where you must complete X amount of Offers and Surveys before you get the item they’re teasing you with. Like they always say….if it sounds too good to be true, then it is.

  28. Sarah says:

    got a text from 626-241-5375 about winning an ipad 3. Scams are so annoying.

  29. g says:

    text at 1:35pm 213-361-2535…put in code 7777 you will actually receive it.

  30. John says:

    Some scam! Called from 1 626 241 5375 (3:53 AM)

    A BOGUS annoying scam.

    What is the number needed to protect yourself from telamarketers? I know there was a notice to protect your phone number about a month ago. Anyone know the number?

    Thanks,

    john

    Glad it wasn’t at 3 am like some of you folks.

  34. Tammy says:

    I received a text this morning at 2:16pm CT from 1-209-559-0873 with the following message (as it was typed): “You’ve just been Chosen to Win the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner info and enter code 7777 will Recieve it!”

  35. Barry says:

    Just got the same ipad3winner link with 7777 code. 12:54 pm PST from 805-640-5190. So they’re using a Calif # now.

  36. Anonymous says:

    You’ve just been Selected to Win iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that go to ipad3winners info and the code 7777 will Recieve it!

    (And that was them spelling ‘receive’ incorrectly, not me.)

  39. disgusted says:

    “You’ve just been Chosen to Win the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner.info and enter the code 7777 will actaully Recieve it!”

  65. Donnetia Hall says:

    text message from 805-395-1274 said i won ipad go to ipadwinner.info and enter 7777 to win why can’t someone do something about these people they should have their computers taken and their fingers broken. my money is hard earned and i am tired of these assholes you cannot get on any website without them getting your info and using it against you it is complete bullshit and they better pray i never find out who they are or i will do the govt. and the police’s job for them

  66. Rebecca says:

    I know this is a scam but I don’t get how they can get info out of us when they just ask for us to enter 7777, it’s the same code for almost everyone who receives the text.

  67. Janice says:

    I just received a text from 707-391-3890 saying: “You’ve just been Chosen to Win the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner.info and enter the code 7777 will actually Recieve it!”

    Jerks. I hope someone catches up with these guys and gives them a whack on the head from me.

  68. Maria says:

    On Saturday Feb 25 at 4:10 AM I received a text from 909-213-3366 saying: “You’ve just been Chosen to Win the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner.info and enter the code 7777 will actually Recieve it!”

  69. Megan says:

    Received text from 310-666-2476 “Ipad 3 testers wanted! The first 1000 users that go to winnerofipad3.mobi and enter code 7837 will get to test & keep a new Ipad 3”

    They can’t even get it right — it’s iPad not Ipad.

  70. Claudia says:

    Now, they’re pitching “enter code 777 at vipstockpicks.mobi..will receive real-time penny stock alerts”

  71. Binkie says:

    These thoughtless jerks left me text spam on my pay-per-use cell phone. My number isn’t listed, and I don’t use text messaging. I’d contact them to insist they pay me back what their spam cost me, but I doubt it would do any good, and my time is worth more than that. So I’ll console myself by posting what they did on several websites until I’m not so furious.

  72. alicia says:

    I received the same text message about a chance of winning ipad3.
    I wanna know who tried going on the link given and what happen?

  73. Gladys says:

    You’ve just been Chosen to Win the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto

    The text I received on my cell was “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto htp://ipad3winner.co and enter code BETA will Receive it!” capitals were as shown, and web site http:….. was underlined (which I cannot enter here or the address disappears)….I was fooled and followed the instructions… a pretty picture of an ipad peeking out from under a blue covering sheet appeared and asked for the code..and there was a comment attached warning me that my number could be given out to other advertisers…but I pushed continue….(so stupid I am),,,and then was left looking at a BLANK screen…and unable to read the comments that came up before the blank screen…So I used back arrow and redid that same “continue” after entering the code BETA. There was a check on my code seeming to confirm….as I said before…but then again a blank screen…HOW I WISH I HAD CHECKED HERE FIRST! Now I don’t have any idea what’s going to invade my privacy…PLEASE BE CAREFUL! I am usually very, very cautious about these things…and I was fooled! If it looks too good to be true…it really IS!

  83. Judy G says:

    me again…forgot to let u know the number it came from….was 12019129624….which is different than the numbers entered before me…BEWARE!

  84. Vikki Hall says:

    The phone number was 201-912-9738.

  87. Becky says:

  88. Pissed Inthemiddleofthenight says:

    At 5:07 AM saturday got my text from [201]748-9041. Not during business hours…
    Conflicting info about originator. Either Cellular from Jersey City, NJ.
    Or landline from NEWARK, NJ, or Hoboken, NJ.
    Must be a cell number because I can send a text back to the sending number, landline cannot do that.
    Text message states “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad 3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner.co and enter code BETA will Receive it!” {spelling and capitalization as per text]

  89. rbooth says:

    I received a text on my phone at 7:06 am March 31 from (201-706-0923) saying that Apple was looking for people to test and keep the new ipad3! but only the first 1000 that go to (ipad3winner.co) and enter the code (BETA) will receive it. My first though was a scam, from other reports it must be, watch out.

  103. Kiki says:

    Hey all–
    I have NEVER gotten one of these after 10 + years of various cell phones, not until about 10 minutes ago, ipad2 looking for first 1000 test users. Also a 201 number but it ended 9712. Interesting thing is I JUST applied for a credit card YESTERDAY for the first time in about 10 years which included my cell phone number since I no longer have a landline. Have any of you recently applied for a credit card?

  104. Jen says:

    just got a text from a number: 201-744-3689, April 1st at 12:20 am. it says “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto http://ipad3winner and enter code BETA will Receive it!” yeah definitely a scam. i got all excited for nothing. as if multi billion corp apple would give a expensive item free for testing. please, get real!

  105. lisa says:

    And now i come here and and find out it’s all a lie?! WTF, that’s not cool man!
    Hope those spamers stumble and fall and on the way down they catch one of their eye on an upthrust needle.

    I just received a msg on my android April 1st at 1058 am PST. “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner and enter code BETA will Receive it!”; the number came from 201-912-9092. Seemed to good to be true and i was concerned that if i went to the site on my laptop it would lead to a virus, etc being downloaded. I googled instead, learning that Apple never uses the public to test their technology (which makes sense), it was also noted in various places that this was spam. Also found this site, interesting enough different codes and phone numbers are listed (guess they have many worker bees). It’s unfortunate that many of you were awoken while sleeping (l’ve learned to silence my msg sounds at bedtime).

  119. Dianne-Maria says:

    Addendum to my comment , this was noted to be a “scam” (wrote spam)

    Upon following link, you arrive at their website and they prompt you to enter a code. Absolutely anything that you enter will work. They then want your name, email, and phone number. Following this, they want your zip code. They then want to know where to “send your new iPad”, the equivalent of “where should we direct our spam?”. You then arrive at a frontal assault of surveys and special offers before finally finishing at a screen where you must choose more special offers. These require information not as easily generated such as your credit card and what not. I hope this satisfies any curiosity as to what the link wants. Remember to always say “NO” to spam.

When I went to the site, it says the code is valid for an iPhone5. I didn’t enter my info…

    The message was the same (at least they corrected the spelling mistakes from earlier versions)

  134. Jess says:

    Tried the the site,,,bogus of course. Says to enter BETA as the code and it was from (201)912-9260.Called the number just for shitzNgiggles and a recording says not set up to receive voicemails,,,,go figure.

  135. Neelie says:

    Just received text at 6:00 pm from 201-912-9889 indicating Apple looking for people to test & keep new iPad3. Assumed it was likely a scam and, as a result, here I am – confirming this is the case. Thanks for the confirmation.

    Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ipad3winner.info and enter code BETA will Receive it!

    My guess is the number is a pre-paid cell (untraceable) and the website is offshore (most likely in China). Just delete this crap and whatever you do DO NOT reply to the text or go to the website – that only encourages these fraudsters to keep spamming.

    “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad 3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto ____(website)____ and enter code BETA will Receive it!”

    I actually assumed I had been spammed via Google Plus, as the telephone number was extremely similar to the messages I have received from Google Plus’ SMS Notification service.

    I did not attempt to visit the site. A general rule of thumb, is that if you ever receive a message about an Apple product, mobile phone, or weight loss; it is generally a serious scam. Don’t visit the site.

    ALSO, if you actually Google the term “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad 3! But only the 1st 1000 users,” you will receive MANY results… from COMPLETELY DIFFERENT PHONE NUMBERS. All 201 area code. New Jersey Scum–no surprise here.

    I like how we have “drunk goggles” instead of a Captcha here.

    I have NEVER given out my phone number to any business.

    I actually wonder if it is not the carrier spamming us. I have Verizon Wireless. What do you all have?

    Yes, too good to be true. Esp since with this 3rd version, does anyone really think Apple needs beta testers? And after the product has been released?

    IM IN Canada .. got a text from 1+201 921-9169 The first 1000 Test and keep the IPad3 to use the BETA code and respond to http:ipad3winner.info …. Just replay to the TEXT “STOP” says my carrier provider.

  184. Randy H says:

    Received April 3 10.48 am Mountain time from 201-912-9591. Go to ipad3winner .co and the first 1000 people to enter code BETA will receive an Ipad 3 to test and keep. I hardly ever use this phone–don’t have a clue as to how they found me.

  185. Leigh says:

    Received test message from 1(347) 255-0483 Apple is looking for people to test & keep the new iPad 3. Go to and enter code Beta

  186. Jay says:

    Got this spam message “Apple is looking for people to Test & Keep the New iPad3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto and enter code BETA will Receive it! I got this message on my cellphone Tuesday, April 3 at 1:05am. The contact phone number that was left with the message was 201-912-9198.

  187. Redstone says:

    Received the same text spam on two separate cellphone numbers as of today @ 19:30 PST. Nothing more than a “free iPad” scam.

    Forwarded it to the GSMA spam reporting service (Shortcode: 7726) which re-forwarded it my cellphone service. (ATT) Additionally filed a complaint to the FTC.

  188. Teresa says:

    I received a text message 4/4/12 at 2:29 am. It said, “Apple is looking for people to test and keep the the ipad3! But only the first 100 users that go to theipad.mobi and enter code BETA will receive it.

  189. Doug says:

    I recieved my “text message” at 5:18P on Apr. 1, so mine at least was not middle of night. Would be nice to know how they can have so many different phone #s with so many different area codes!!!! The one I got was 201-912-9199. It’s about time someone shuts these crooks down. With my cell plan I had the opportunity to call a number to block all unknown and telemarketer number’s and text’s, which I did. Still getting just as many as or more than I got before I put the block on my cell. Getting tired of all the crap these people are able to get away with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  190. Emerald says:

    Mine came thru my AT&T communications manager from 201-912-9199. Said to enter code BETA and test and keep it.

  191. Jake says:

    I got a spam text a bout winning I iPad from 201 912 9720

  192. Barneto says:

    I got mine at 3:56am. Enter the BETA code, first 1000 would get it. from +1210-616-9146.

  193. Denise says:

    NEW NUMBER: 201-423-5253 Same offer

  194. Loren says:

    Mine came from 347-735-9517 at 10:48AM
    “You have been randomly selected for a Free New iPad 2. Get it now at apple.com.todayswinners.info/?id=ycffhkfckc !”

    Heck, for a scam you’d think i’d at least be offered the latest model!!

  195. Isa says:

    Yet another number, got the same text message from (606) 272-3465 ipad3-winner.com

  196. Bill says:

    Called my no contract cell phone to tell me I won an Ipad. cost me $.18 and another $.18 to tell them not to call me.
    They owe me $.36.

  197. Derek says:

    Received the text from 724-710-1307 at 12:49am. Telling me to enter code 8172 to qualify for a free ipad3 if I go to ipad3winner.com. Isnt there an organization underneath emperor Obama that goes after these things. I mean you would think that if we are going to continue to spend trillions it would have some results somewhere.

  198. Nathan says:

    Got a text this morning that I belive is a scam… Ok it has to be. Anyways here it is.

    Phone# 201-423-5161.
    Apple is looking for people to test & Keep the new ipad 3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto (http: /theipad3.mobi) and enter code BETA willReceive it!

    Yup! How the hell did they get my number and why the hell are they able to access a number that isnt used? I looked up the 201 number and that number isnt even one that can be used. Even more.. A .mobi? yea, that sounds like something valid. There are several things out like this now. Just a couple months a go a couple people got hit with a text message on a smart phone and got hit for 1k bill on there cells. Be smart and remember NOTHING is for free.

  199. Gary says:

    It’s not called Ipad3…Apple calls it the ‘new ipad’, that should be your first clue.
    Your second clue should be the fact that this ipad has been released for several weeks…testing would have already happened long long ago, don’t be naive.

  200. OMK says:

    I received mine on April 2 via text from the following phone number – 201-706-0923.
    How does one prevent such scam texts from arriving.

  201. Dawn says:

    937-594-5638 ‘we’re giving away iPad3’s to the first 1000 mobile users that…..’ blah blah blah

  202. Ashlee says:

    937-594-5638 texted me today at 1:29 pm. It said “it’s true! We are giving away ipad3’s to the first 1000 mobile users that go to ipad3-winner.com enter code 8172 to qualify. My husband received a similar message earlier in the day from a different number.

  203. Josh says:

    another from 907-299-1390

  204. Gayle says:

    Received text from 612-212-3032 – “It’s true. We are giving away iPad3’s to the first 1000 mobile users that go to ipad3-winner.com enter code 8172 to qualify”

  205. Valerie says:

    I received iPad3 text from a number not lised above. It is 2019180731. I almost did it until I saw spam warning.

  206. Bad Jack says:

    Yep, got woke at 3:15 a.m. with “Apple is looking for people to Text & Keep the New iPad 3! But only the 1st 1000 users that goto theipad3.mobi and enter code BETA will Receive it!”.
    Number was 1-347-268-8002 I have not seen this one on the list above.
    So with all the crazy apps changing voivces, dialing someones number 100 times, How come someone cant make app to inundate them with msg’s?

    Get ’em Ma!

  207. liza says:

    I received a text from 937-768-0805. I just knew it was a scam!!!

  208. Chris Gross says:

    Received text today at 5:pm from phone #347-709-9404. Figured it was a hoax. What happens if you go to that website — which I of course did not do.

  209. Sam says:

    I have a corporate phone which I do not list anywhere and still got the message. The spammer now just message to every possible phone number combination, not just valid numbers. Even the Do Not Call list doesn’t prevent these. Very annoying, especially since I work for a telco and there is next to nothing we can do about it. The scammers don’t operate within the law but everyone else is suppose to. I’d like to bill them for all the cost to our customers plus an extra fee for annoyance!

  210. CJ says:

    I got the message from 201-912-9993 on 4/1/12 02:57 goto ipad3winner.info enter code Beta – test & keep the new ipad3 for the first 1000 users. I am charged for messages. And a few minutes ago, I received another text this time from 657-2069146 saying that I had won a free APPLE product just go to limitedfreeinfo.com within 48 hours to claim your reward. Don’t these people have anything else to do!

  211. Lauressa S. Medley says:

    I too received the message on 4/2/12enter code BETA to be the first 1000 to win an ipad.

    sign my name as cookingmama. the number that sent the message was 201-912-9103

  212. carl starr says:

    i received the same message,code beta and 12019129153

  213. Tamara Gregg says:

    I’m Canadian and I received spam from a 201 number at 3 am or something like that. I’m sure its because I participate in petitions that are from the States (no good deed goes unpunished). I didn’t read the whole message at first thinking its advertising from rogers or Apple waking me up. Then when I did read the whole message I thought “if it’s real from 3 am to when I wake up the 1000 people will have probably already passed. If it’s a hoax, and it probably is they’ll have already posted it online.”

  214. Tamara Gregg says:

    Another thing in regards to scammers in general. I once got scammed by getting a phone call saying I could win a free watch. They said they now outsourcing to Canada from LA and I’d won. He goes through his spiel and says his supervisor will call me back to finalize things. “Tell her I deserve a raise”. He thought he deserved a raise for scamming people just because I was outside of the country. I know people are desperate for work but how can people be proud of dishonesty?

  215. Bob says:

    201-423-5390 this morning at 5:59 am we do not hand our cell phone numbers out to anyone but family. This is the second time and my wife is getting this on her’s also.

  216. Melissa Sisco says:

    I just got one at 9:08 am from 606-259-1297. Only I ‘m kind of insulted. It was only an iPad 2. The spammers could at least have the decency to offer the newest version!

  217. Jamie says:

    My husband just ran up to me with his cell, saying “hey look, they want me to test out the new iPad, I just have to click the link they sent me within 5 minutes” … Poor guy was all excited… Till I broke his heart and yelled, “OMG don’t click that, it’s either a scam or a virus”… And yeah, the bastard scammers texted him at 6am on a hoilday (glad we were already up with the baby)

  218. andywolt@Hotmail.com says:

    Kind of funny I reversed look-up the phone number and it came back as Thief River Falls, MN. Nice…

  219. Ben says:

    Got mine from 347-770-6102. Told me to go to an apple.com website…?

    Got one as well at 5 in the morning here in canada. Did not bother to open it and deleted it right away. All i could tell you is that it from a 347 number that ended in 0808. Damn scammers woke me up. I bet you anything they now have auto-texters. >.<

  231. Martha says:

    I just synced my phone today and immediately got a spam from a new number you don’t have listed. 347-301-3852. Same statement as mentioned in previous emails today…..

  232. Caren Phillips says:

    I got one of these messages from the number (347)276-4307.

  243. Edith says:

    I got the same message from (347)326-1534 on Saturday, April 7th. I thought it was from my daughter so I thought it was legit. Dummy me! I started to go for it and entered basic Name & Address then it sent me to where I needed to enter my SS#. I entered it then got a reality check and closed it down without submitting it. Do I need to worry about my SS#?

  244. Vicki says:

    Another number to add to the growing list. I received this at 1:54 a.m. this morning. 1-347-255-2486 and the website address they are now using is ipad3now.co, with the same code BETA.

  245. Andrea says:

    My cousin got this text a few hours ago on his cell and asked me about it because it supposedly came from my cell’s number. I’m overseas and pay for each text I send back home and I have NO RECORD of this text having been sent, nor is it inserted into the history of our texts to each other. I HAVE been billed for texts I made after this one was supposedly sent, so I know that my billing record is up to date. I’ve gone nine rounds with my service provider (O2) and they cannot find any record of it having been sent from my cell (an iPhone 4S). It looks as though the spammers may have graduated to hooking the text onto someone in the recipient’s contact list. Either that or it really was me and I just got a free international text….. Any idea how to figure out the difference between these two options?

  246. Keetha says:

    Like everyone else here I received that same message. Mine’s from 201 – 912 – 9087. Unlike most of you, I actually received my email at 5:43 pm. I don’t know what to think of these spammers. Do these guys think that we are really stupid?

    I was deleting my old messages on my phone when I came by this message, so I decided to check it out. I have Norton Antivirus program on my computer and it wouldn’t allow me to go to the site saying that it was an unsafe site. I kind of figured that it was not a safe place to be. This site was listed as a safe site so I came to check out what people had to say.

  247. Donna Adams says:

    347-224-5037 texted me 4-8-12 at 12:03 am. It said “Apple is looking for people to test and keep the new ipad 3. Only the 1st 1000 users that go to ipad3now.co enter code BETA will receive it.

    Slow to mention, but I got the “Apple is looking …” message above word for word as a text from 201-912-9219 at 16:46EST, April 1st. At first, I thought maybe it was a friend playing an April Fool’s joke, but decided to actually search it since it seemed so scammy/spammy.

Had no idea this was wide spread. Crappy for me, cuz I have to pay for texts. I have no control over these dummies that like wasting my money. Wish there was a way to stop it. Not like I can post a “No trespassing or no Soliciting” on my phone. Great idea though.

I pity them. And thank you for your website in recognizing these “crooks.”

  430. Falkner says:

    Hi,

    It seems to be a scam. You are only entering a draw. In that process you have to give up your e-mail and i reckon it is easier winning in the lottery than getting you hands on that Ipad……

    Askew_Dorothea@ipadalert.net//
    Your mobile phone was selected to receive a brand NEW $499 Tablet PC!! ipad3.alert.net

    I had a feeling it was a scam I went to a computer to see where this number was from and found that it didn’t exist. That’s when I saw this website.
    Thank you. I’m going to tell my phone company to block that number.

  443. Marlene says:

    I just received a text from 4189 from iawobsm@ipad3alert.com message read / /Your mobile was picked as the winner of a brand new 32GB Tablet PC! gift.ipad3alert.com. I extracted the data – phone was 4189 email and web addresses as shown in the message.

    Got one a few months ago 5:30 AM from Best Buy supposedly. Figured that was a scam as well. I always check these out – if it sounds too good to be true….!

  450. Ace says:

    I have received 2 texts in the past two days, both from different “numbers” and both with different email addresses attached to them.

    Text 1: from 4182 – John_3_William@ipad3alert.com telling me I’ve been choses as the winner of a brand new 32GB tablet PC. then gives the website (not going to repost it). This one came at ~2:30 in the morning!

    Text 2: from 3764 – JoanLund.R@ipad3alert.com telling me that my cellphone was picked as the tablet winner of the day. Similar website, but not exactly the same.

    Sure as hell hope that I’m not getting charged for these texts.

  451. Marlene says:

    I received another one about 6 AM this morning. Woke me up, knew what it was, but I didn’t write the information this time as I was half asleep. I just deleted it as it was the same thing, just different email address. Wish there was a way to block these things.

  452. Vulture says:

    Just had a browser hijack page tell me I (randomly) won an Ipad, When they asked for my mobile number I gave them an 800-911 type number….;)

    Wonder how many time they are going to spam a 911 number before the cops just shut that place down???

  453. Jay says:

    I got one of those texts at 6:48am from text #4249. It said my mobile number had been picked to get the latest iPad3. When I googled it I found out there is no ipad3. Glad I checked.

  503. Scammed by Apple Scammer says:

    I was contacted by someone named Michael Anthony Bunting who stated he worked for apple and could get a discount on apple products. Long story short, this is a scam that Michael Anthony Bunting uses to get money from people. He never delivers products. I do not think he even works for apple, or have a job nonetheless. He needs to be stopped. He has scammed people out of thousands of dollars.

    This is the text i got early in the morning from 605-622-0892 (add number to ur list as i didnt see this one on there..thx)

    “Winner ID:33450 You have won a Ipad4 or $1000 Prize from Twitter! Redeem your prize here! bit.ly/Zbdvir”

    I guess im the first who has posted where theyr offering the ipad 4 …that or $1000!! ??? Why??
    What is the point of these peeps doing this?? I mean does it send a virus to ur fone or something if u click on the link? How does a scammer make money by doing this?? I really dont understand? Has anyone else actually clicked on the link to see what actually happens? Any info, insights, or thoughts on this would be interesting! Thanks 🙂

  571. Hi gr8fulnfree

    The number 605-622-0892 has been added to the list thank you very much.

    The scammers trick you into giving them personal data like address and credit card numbers. Always be suspicious, that is the safest option.

  572. T Bennett says:

    Great service this provides, thanks.

    Received txt today from 5747421036 (Indiana). Directed me to go to bit.ly/V….. gave a “prize winner number”. Didn’t bother to go to website. This phone number was not on your list. Message I received was similar to gr8fulnfree, except the messaged claimed the prize was from Facebook.

    Email, websites, text messages, phones, mail..even door-to-door and face-to-face. All of these methods have been used in successful scams. Scammers are everywhere, we all need to be vigilant. I find a good rule that works well for me: if I question it in any way–don’t do anything with it at all for 24 hours…and I question everything. By then, it looks so stupid that I wonder why I waited. I never knew until today that this place was here, however. Thanks for bringing us together on this.

  641. Nick says:

    No, SERIOUSLY HOW D-U-M-B or RETARDED one must be to beleive that someone would be giving them FREE GADGETS WORTH $500?!! Without asking them for survey of some kind, making a bid deal out of it publicly with press releases and photoshoot and all the PR stuff. Yeah f*in right, corporations have nothing better to do in America but to give free stuff away. Argh… USA is a country of eternal greed where money is an only idol and yeah, you expect that on a silver platter. Well you deserve to get scammed and get a reality check then. Start THINKING for yourself and taking responsibility for your own actions. Throw the zombiebox out, unplug the cable and start THINKING goddamit

  643. Amber says:

    I was on Facebook and a friend of mine posed a website and told me to check it out. when I clicked on the website this little box popped up that said I need to complete this survey if I wanted to continue. it was an apple survey telling me that I won a free I Pad as long as I filled in all of my information. is this a scam or does it really work. I don’t want to put my address and everything out to scammers so I would like to know.

  644. dake says:

    Got a call from 201-913-8213. A person was on the other line and directed me to the website ipadqualify.com, and asked me to tell him the ‘enrollment code’. I went to the website, which may not have been a good idea, which under the 4-digit enrollment code had a box titled ‘website to call’ that said cellphonesdata.com. Not trusting the situation, I decided not to tell him what I saw (although opening the website on a different computer got the same exact screen). The guy said that I had entered my information in a survey for a free ipad. (I had not–he had my name and email wrong also) He said the next step if I gave him the enrollment code was to go to freeipads.net. I have no idea how the scam works or what they’re after but I wasn’t about to find out.

  645. Barbara Knight says:

    Looks like the last thing was back in September….well the scam is going on again. Got a call yesterday and today from two different numbers. I deleted the number from yesterday but the number today was 878-102-7771. Both times it was a man with an accent….the one today I was actually able to understand a little better. Anyway, was told to go to ipadqualify.com. I did and was told to enter a code, I did and when I hit enter it took me to another page with another site listed. At that point I clicked off the internet and hung up. Both times I asked where they got my number from and was told the internet…today I asked where on the internet….was told I filled out a survey, I told him that no I didn’t so was told that I must have went to one of their sponsor sites. Anyway, there is another number to add to the list and for others to know about the newest ipad scam.

  646. Dan Zwicker says:

    On Oct 9/13 I was taken through the same ipad “you won” routine.

  647. Mary Moehle says:

    10-14-13 Received call from ?. Indian accented man spoke too fast to understand but said I had won an iPad, resulting from contact w/? Wanted info from me/told him I was not comfortable doing that, my phone’s battery was going low and gave him cell number to call. Did not hear from him again until this morning (10-17-13) when he gave me Code #712430 to input on Google site: ipadqualify.com, which gave me Enrollment Code #1098. I was to then contact: foleylawfirm.com which would supply me w/Authorization Code; last instruction (after filling in their blank Authorization Code) was to click on “Next”. Did not respond or give any info; it’s sad and more than offensive to know the morally bankrupt people behind these scams will never be held to account.

  648. Nina Kirkland says:

    Just got a call from a Texas number that was exactly as described by Mary Moehle on Oct 17 … even the same code #712430.
    However, I didn’t go to the ipadqualify.com page and give him the code, telling him I was having problems with my computer while I tried to fast google search on another page about this website to see if it was a scam. He did tell me, politely, that he wasn’t going to need any personal information from me but was on the phone to help me complete the qualification process. When I continued to stall, he hung up.

  649. Spammers and scammers will always try to find loopholes, not only through the iPad, the entire gadget will also get a threat like this. Be careful ..

  650. angel preston says:

    I also received a call and was told that I would be receiving a ipad by this past Monday and today is now wensday dec 2nd 2013 and I haven’t received anything yet

  651. angel preston says:

    sorry I put in the incorrect date today is dec03rd 2013

  652. Kim says:

    Same deal, male with an Indian accent said to go to ipadqualify.com. Phone number 573-111-3819. Was suppose to click on KAPinsurance web page (located in Canada when I looked it up). Said someone would call back and gave me a code of 1633313. Never received another call. I figured it was a scam from the start.

  653. Priscilla says:

    603-101-9252 Add this number same story as the rest…….. Free Ipad if I bounce from website to website but did not ask my personal information (thank god) What was the point of all this I am still wondering…

    hi
    January 13 2014 I got a call telling me I qualify for a free I pad .I had to two 4 different websites and put in codes then he said I would receive it in 4 to 5 days .he didn’t ask for any personal information said it was all paid for.i heard its a scam but one person I read somewhere actually received one.so I am waiting

  656. George G says:

    Got a call from #812-189-7414 (Indiana) on my caller ID. Indian accent and he said that I won an Ipad from a contest I signed up for a while back. Didn’t want any info, but he asked me to go online to IpadQualify.com. I googled the phone number and it’s in India.

    Then he gave me a 4 Digit code to enter.
    A 6 digit member code is 7—-2
    and some 7 digit code.
    He then asked me to go to three different websites, for just a second

    One of them was lokinsuranceagency.com

    He said his name is Daniel and that I will be called tomorrow to get my shipping info for the Ipad
    I was obviously never called
    I called back but now I’m scared I’m going to be charged a lot of money
    I want to know what they were phishing for and what information they got from me

  657. Doel Baughman says:

    I just received a call from (313) 160-9948. They asked me to go to http://www.ipadqualify.com. On that page there was a picture of an Ipad and a spot to input a confirmation number which the person gave me. Instead of typing it in, I closed the tab and told the lady to give my ipad to someone else. Hopefully I didn’t already download a trojan. 🙁

  658. Hi Doel

    I wouldn’t worry about that. I get no warnings when visiting the page. Their scam is not related to trojans.

    If you worry about those however please feel free to try a 30-day free trial of VIRUSfighter.
    http://www.spamfighter.com/VIRUSfighter/

    Thank you for helping out with a number Doel, it has been added.

  659. Sandra says:

    Just received a call for verification for a free Ipad. Was instructed to go to:
    ipadqualify.com, then I was given a membership code to enter, next in was asked to open a series of browsers and asked to tell what I saw. They included: nilesinsurancegroup.com, mylocalnationwideinsurance.com, Insureon.com, and finally, geico.com.
    I was asked to return to the ipadqualify.com browser and was given another code to enter. I was told that tomorrow I will get a call from the shipping office, who will get my shipping information.

    I don’t know if this is a scam, but it sounds like one!

  660. Kathryn says:

    I received a call today and the number was 315-191-2078. He told me to go to ipadqualify.com and i did, and he had me go to a few websites and type in some codes… I figured out it was a scam after we had gotten off the phone, im terrified that they used the codes to get to my computer information. I’m scared beyond all reason, I hope there are no virus’ and information that they took. I didn’t give him my name or bank information or address.
    Please let me know if I’ll be ok.
    Thanks.

  661. Mary says:

    I too received a call today Feb. 17, 2014 from that same phone # (315) 191-2078 was dragged thru the same hoops and tunnel obstacle course as you Kathryn. Funny thing is this would be the second time around first time was phone #(432) 123-6155 on Feb. 6th,2014. Both times the voice on the other end supplied the same access # and I’m just gonna put it out there 712522 because i have a feeling we all share the same number. Call it a hunch. First call was a man, second call a woman. The second call i informed the (Indian speaking) woman on the other end that i had already done these steps. I thankfully or maybe not was having issues connecting to my main browser. Well this lady instantly turned from phone sweepstakes Rep. into troubleshooter.CON. All i know is that I’m the daughter of a Federal Judge and I hate when people waste my time so in the memory of my Dad I’m gonna sink my teeth into this one till I get a viable answer. And I want to know do these companies (Metlife, Progressive realize the S–tstain being left on their reputation by these leeches? Also to Kathryn again I don’t beleive your personal info is at jeopardy. I think that when they get a person to the screen where they open a page say “Metlife” then have you close it then do the same with next two pages, they get a payment of sorts for each person who goes to those pages and opens them. Remember victory comes in numbers! This kinda stuff has got to end. They ain’t even in this country and they’re robbing us!

    Offered a free ipad but didn’t responded.

  663. hz says:

    I went on a website that said that i was the 100,000th visitor and was eligible to win a macbook pro, iPad air, 1000 visa gift card, or an iPhone 5s. It was an ad. I don’t think it’s real and these things are going wild.

  664. Sharon Pullen says:

    Well I get to be added to the list. 🙁 the phone number came up Ontario California 289-122-0328. Same thing as others recently called. Gets you to type in a code, go to 3 different insurance websites then go back to original page to type in a code. I think these are what as known as clickers. They get paid by the ‘click’ to a website. Looks like more people have visited a site than really have. I’m pretty sure I’ll never hear from anyone to get my shipping info. Saw something on the news about Facebook selling ‘likes’. Facebook sells ad space for a certain $ amount guaranteeing so many clicks for the dollar amount. I don’t think there is anything to worry about with personal info…they got what they wanted, your clicks. Still wrong but hopefully harmless.

  668. melody says:

    not sure if this counts as the same scam, but i just had a popup in my browser that read
    “Dear Eastlink customer, you have been chosen to receive an exclusive Ipad 3! Just complete our 30 second survey, and pay 4.99 shipping and handling!”
    I obviously did not fall for it.

  669. Jolene says:

    Got a Pop-up claiming to be from Rogers (which is a tv, Internet and phone provider in Canada – Ottawa, Ontario) asking to complete a survey – 4 questions ie gender, where are you using system – home, work and 2 more, do you have an iPad yes or no, and I forget the other question… When I completed the survey, it directed me to a congrats page where I could choose between an iPad with retina scan, wifi & 3G usually $449 now free only pay $4.99 S & H – only 4 left or an Android product, again only pay S & H – sold out… When I chose the iPad, I was directed to another page that asked for my particulars ie name, address, phone number… with a checked box i agree to term and conditions… Of course I tried to look at terms couldn’t… They did not ask for any card info or maybe I just hadn’t got to that part… So I called Rogers and they said there is NO SURVEY of the kind at this moment… Deleted all my info and got rid of page… Hopefully I’m ok computer wise… Just thought you might like to be aware of this…

  671. Leah says:

    Can someone from this site look at Jane’s comment on May 14 please? Surely this is a scam??

  672. Leah says:

    What I mean is that Jane’s comment is masquerading as a genuine comment that has passed moderation. It is not reading as someone giving an example of a scam email or comment. Someone may think this is genuine. To be honest I think it’s an intentional scam comment and not an example of one, otherwise it would have been presented that way. How did it make it through moderation guys??!

  673. Kim Falkner says:

    @Leah,

    Sorry you are clearly right. Comment from Jane is deleted now.

    The only option is ok – this has completely disabled my safari app as I cannot close the pop up unless I click OK. I’ve tried powering down and back on but without success. Please can you advise. Many thanks.

  700. Hi Tracy

    That doesn’t sound good. I’d suggest resetting Safari in settings.

    – Clear History
    – Clear Cookies
    – Clear Cache

    Tapping on each of these will clear all stored information and bring it back to default settings.

  701. Tracey says:

    Thanks Philip, that’s cleared it (phew!!) thanks for your help.

  702. jon says:

    hey Tracy, i had the same thing. i fixed it by quitting safari, rebooting and then opening safari and as soon as possible clicking on a different tab so the spam one isn’t active. then you can “x” it closed while it’s inactive.

  703. Ryan Moore says:

    I noticed an odd toolbar on Weather.com which had never been there before. There was a Mail button that was flashing, alerting me that I had a message. When I clicked on it, a very real looking message from Apple.com-luckywinner… popped up offering a free iPhone 7. I did my research before I started filling out the info. and decided to close out. I followed Philip Mahler’s directions and when I logged back on to Weather.com the toolbar was gone. I was on an iPhone 5s.

    Thank you Mr. Mahler.

  704. Stuart Bisset says:

    Hi just had this pop up on my wife’s iPad. Do not press ok. Press the home key to return to the home screen. Double press the home key to get to your current apps and close Safai by swiping it upwards.
    Reopen safari and close all tabs.

  705. Rachel says:

    I received the same pop up as Tracey while in safari. Had to shut down my iPad.

  706. I got a pop up on my phone says I won a free phone is it for real

    i just got same pop re: test winner i7 up on my i5s and i cant get out of it? so i shut ph off

  708. Marnix A. van Ammers says:

    Pop up said “CONGRATULATIONS! Your Apple device was selected because we need more testers for the new iPhone 7. Press OK to participate and receive a free iPhone 6

    I got the popup after clicking on some spot in my weather.com app.

  709. Jerry G says:

    I received a pop up ad that said “Congratulations your Samsung device was selected & you are a winner. Apple needs testers like you to test their new aIPhone/IPad. Then there was a box that had click here, so I clicked on the box & then a message came up that said Error 400 trouble loading company page. I searched for a way to turn them in as a scam/false advertising but I couldn’t find a website to go to. Does anybody have a suggestion or know of a way to turn these scammers in?

  710. Tracey says:

    I wish I knew how to report it too Jerry G – it’s happened again twice since my original post/query. I don’t know where it’s come from though, just happened to me whilst using safari app on the iPad. Wasn’t even on the same website when it happened again. Thanks to the replies though at least we can get rid of it.

  711. Seth Crosby says:

    Thank you, Mr. Mahler! Clearing worked for us too!

  712. Karen says:

    Thanks for the help of shutting off safari and then reopening it and xing it out. The same popup came up though so thought I would go into facebook and hit a link and when a new one came up, was able to x out the offending one. My popup that I couldn’t get rid of was Fantasy Sports this time. Last time I cleared history to get the iPhone scam out, but couldn’t figure out how to do it this time on the ipad.

  713. B says:

    Clicked on ‘OK, on congratulations you have won an iPhone 6’ as couldn’t get rid if it. Then ‘x’d it as soon as it started to open. Do I have anything to worry about?

  714. Victoria says:

    Got a different kind of iPhone scam. While I was playing Yahtzee with Buddies, I saw some flashing message icon at the bottom of my phone. I thought it might be my daughter messaging me, since we play this game a lot. Clicked on it and it said that my phone carrier (Verizon) had picked me to win an iPhone. There were the usual Facebook comments like, “Omg I thought this was a scam but I received my iPhone today” and what-not. They wanted me to confirm my address and phone number, but…with my OLD cell phone number (never had that number on this phone, and the carrier for that number was Virgin, not Verizon).

    I know enough to know that no one gets somethng for nothing, but it makes me mad that they use such deceptive tactics. Should I contact Verizon about this? I didn’t notice the company involved, I just closed out the window – hope I never hear from them again. How they managed to contact me through a phone that had an entirely new number and carrier is a mystery to me.

  715. Sandy H says:

    Just received a pop up stating Apple has chosen me as a winner for an apple i phone 6. I couldn’t get out of this until l clicked on OK. I didn’t go any further as l do know these can be scams. What l didn’t like was the photos of people saying this isn’t a SCAM! Terrible. How do these people take over our I pads. There’s no such thing as something for nothing. Look out for hptt/. These are scam sites. Real sites start with hptts/

  716. Sharon says:

    I too have had this pop up during a game app, http://Apple.uk-beta-iphone7.com–free.gift
    Then says , congratulations virginmedia Limited user! Your iPad device was selected because we need more testers for the new I phone 7 , press ok to participate in this revolutionary promotion ! That’s it no gift making it sound like Iam lucky be some sort of Guinea pig !! Watch out

  717. Chris says:

    I too received a “Congratulations (ISP name) subscriber, your iPad was randomly selected in (suburb) today to win a prize!
    I was suspicious because my ISP’s name was not quite right.
    I only had the button OK to choose, however, thanks to Philip’s help, I reset Safari & it’s now OK.

  718. Chris says:

    I got an email stating the I won a significant amount of $ an apple phone & a macbook then they said to send my info to. appleunit7@hotmail

  721. KLD says:

    How do you clear Facebook when the offer goes up? Uninstall Facebook? Or is there another way?

  722. Tracey says:

    To KLD, I’d remove the Facebook app then download it again. Am too wary to click on these pop ups. Thankfully I’ve not had one of these pop ups in a while now, but am having problems with my email being scammed now and sending out dodgy emails to my contacts from (what looks like but isn’t) my email address. If it’s not one thing it’s another ?

  723. Christina Urban Sørensen says:

    Dear Tracey,

    We are sorry to hear about your tech problems.
    It sounds like you have been a victim of phishing or hacking.
    I would recommend you to get a filter on your e-mail (as long as you are not entering your e-mail through an browser) this will prevent you from clicking on something bad, because all of the spam e-mails will automatically go to another folder.
    You can get our free spam filter here: http://www.spamfighter.com/SPAMfighter/Product_Info.asp
    These are the e-mail clients that SPAMfighter supports:
    Outlook 2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016 (Office)
    Outlook Express 5.5 (and later) (32 Bit)
    Windows Mail (Only 32bit)
    Windows Live Mail (Only POP3)
    Mozilla Thunderbird

    Also, I would recommend you go get an anti-virus program and anti-spyware program. All of our programs you can try out from free in 30 days.
    Download VIRUSfighter here: http://www.spamfighter.com/VIRUSfighter/
    Download SPYWAREfighter here: http://www.spamfighter.com/SPYWAREfighter/

    If this doesn’t help you, unfortunately sometimes you’ll have to get a new e-mail address.

  724. What’s up, after reading this remarkable piece of writing i am too glad to share my familiarity here with friends.

  725. Allyson says:

    I received tonight a pop up on my iphone 6 that I cannot get rid of !! http://www.best-iphone6s.com congratulations! You were selected because we need more testers for the new iphone 7 press OK to participate and receive a free iphone 6s.

    I knew that this would be scam however I pressed OK to see if it would go away and it didnt. I have tried clearing history in safari and also advanced website data, have reset the network settings. I don’t particularly want to reset all settings as I don’t want to lose content on my phone !! I deleted the app that I recently added which was “photomyne” tried it again still get the message. I changed the search engine to yahoo and it is fine but I prefer google changed it back and it still comes up !!!

    Can someone please help !!!

    Popped Up On my IPhone 6S Screen just now. Said it was Facebook offering a free IPad. It looks like a Facebook page, But when you click on the links to Facebook at the top right they don’t work. There is a second counter counting down from 3 minutes… I did not push any of their links to get the prize…. Here is the wording on this Pop-Up:
    ———–

    Sounds like a scam, dont click on anything if it comes up again.
    Facebook doesn’t do any offerings, so dont believe that.

  732. Bev S says:

    I received the “congratulations you’ve won an ipad pop up” in chrome. Selecting ok was the only option that was available but I did not click ok. I double clicked the home button, swiped it up and reopened and the message was still there so I deleted chrome and downloaded a new Chrome HOWEVER when I opened Safari, the same “congratulations you’ve won an iphone” pop up was in Safari. So I cleared that cache and page. What do I need to remove or clear to make this go away. Turning it off, swiping the site away, deleting the browser and clearing the cache didn’t work. What other option is available. Thanks

  733. Ԍоod post! We will bbe linking to this great article on our website.

    Keep up the great writіng.

  734. Christina Urban Sørensen says:

    Dear Bev S,

    This could potentially be a threat to the safety of your computer, and therefor I would recommend you to purchase a virus and spyware program, that can scan your computer and protect you, if you do not already have such filter installed on your computer.
    SPAMfightes offers 30 days free trail of their anti-virus and anti-spyware programs, and you can download them both for free.
    Please download VIRUSfighter here: http://www.spamfighter.com/VIRUSfighter/
    Please download SPYWAREfighter here: http://www.spamfighter.com/SPYWAREfighter/

    Once the programs are installed, you should run a scan with the program so that they can search your computer for malicious threats.

    Best Regards
    SPAMfighter

    I fillled out a survey for a free prize when i went to this one website. There were lots of options and i picked an iphone 6s. I checked to see if it was real or just a trick. On the bottom of the page (i have an android phone fyi ) it had people claiming they got their prizes,on facebook. I thought it was real,so i filled it out and clicked ‘ok ‘ after that it just logged out. Idk if i should have done it so i tried to refresh. Then it said i got 3 viruses. I was scared and did everything i could to get them out. I downloaded antivirus apps on my phone and it said i did have a virus. I cleaned it all out and everything looks good ,but im unsure of the survey. Please help. Ive never seen these types of surveys before SOS

    I have been receiving phone calls every day from 941-845-9119 from Palmetlo Florida telling me not to use my IPad until I talk to a Apple consultant at 1-800-815-5126. I discard the messages after talking to Apple Customer Service. They say it sounds like a scam to them. Any suggestions?

Had friends to our home yesterday, and they said they had received similar messages. It is a scam and you should delete, DO NOT OPEN.

    Hi guys,

    I received the same message in my laptop ( Congratulations Desktop user, You are our potential winner today!), and I put my second email address in the form (because I knew it may be a Hoax). You can believe me, I start receiving funny messages at this email address since, yet it was quiet for long.

    So I received this pop up today on iPhone 7S. I copied the entire page including the photos of the profile users and their comments and then went to Google and pasted the entire page that i copied . It pulled up over five other games saying you’ve one with the exact same people writing the exact same comments. I have copied and pasted it below so you can see what I’m talking about. I did, however, remove the profilers last name except for the first initial. Also if you click on the App Store
    at the top left corner of the page it should take you to the Apple Store. You can tell it is a scam if you click on it and it stays on the same page. Hope that this helps anyone.

  756. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or
    guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog centered on the same
    subjects you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work.
    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e mail.

  757. May I simply say what a relief to uncover a person that truly understands what they’re discussing on the internet.
    You actually realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    More people need to read this and understand this side of the story.
    It’s surprising you are not more popular given that you surely possess the gift.

  758. Please help, a pop up came up on my iPhone and I cannot get rid of it – it says ‘congratulations iPad! Your iPad device was selected because we need more testers for the new iPhone 7 Press OK to participate and receive a free iPhone 6 The only option is ok – this has completely disabled my safari app as I cannot close the pop up unless I click OK. I’ve tried powering down and back on but without success. Please can you advise. Many thanks.
