Facebook Free MacBook Pro Giveaway Scam

One of the newest scams online has taken over Facebook. This scam offers you a Free Macbook Pro or Free iPhone 5 claiming just a few simple steps to claim one of many free MacBook Pros and iPhone 5s. These posts are usually accompanied with a photo showing boxes of Macbook Pros or boxed iPhone 5s. There have been many different versions of this scam popping up, however, the most common is using MacBook laptops or iPhone 5s.

How The iPhone 5 & MacBook Scam Works:

There are two versions of this scam. One version has you like the photo and share the photo. The idea is to get the most exposure for their scam. The scammers are hoping that you will end up liking their Facebook page allowing them to then fill your wall with additional scams.

The other version that is very popular is having your Like and Share the photo as well as visit a website to choose which one you would like to receive. This website takes you to what looks to be a Facebook authorization page that asks you to fill out a survey to enter for your chance to win. These “surveys” are simply advertisements that the scammers get paid for you filling out. There is no entry and no prize to be won. See the screen shots below:

    I was tricked into believing the we love macbook scam and even though i never expected to win I actually did. Now finding out its all just a scam I cant stop crying. It was the one tiny silver lining that I had when everything is currently going bad. The funny thing? I wanted a macbook or ipad, and since I won the iphone I was going to trade it for one or the other. People don’t be fooled like me and become a sobbing wreck.

      You should never believe anything on Facebook again. Sorry, but you really should earn some money to get a iPhone. But I would prefer the Galaxy SIII.

    Depressingly 20,000 people are falling for this on FB right now.

      It is quite sad how many actually fall for this every day.

    I just “won” a MacBook off one of these sites. Shame.

    • Hua

      No you didn’t. But nice try.

      • Sondre Åvik

        Hence he put won in quotes hinting that he didn’t actually win a MacBook, or perhaps, in this case, he “won” a MacBook and only if he did a survey…
