Facebook scam promises free Macbook Air


Compromised Facebook accounts are being used to send out scam posts promising free Apple Macbooks.  The scam does not make reference to the death of Steve Jobs as others have.  The link leads to marketing affiliate sites that ask for a user’s mobile phone number – users are then signed up for premium mobile content with high monthly charges.

The text:

OK guys my friend’s company is doing a promotion and offering free Apple macbook air’s. This hasn’t been released to everyone yet but I’m sending it out to you guys to get a chance to get them first.
