iPod nano for just $49 (plus your Social Security Number)




Category: News and Press Releases
Link: iPod nano for just $49 (plus your Social Security Number)
Description:: Scoring an iPod nano for $100-off might seem like one of those deals thatís too good to be true, and guess what? It is. But that doesnít mean that a bunch of people werenít foolish enough to be taken in by this official-looking Apple clone of a site called theonedaynanosale.com that sprung up this morning. Yes, it came and went within hours, but that was apparently enough time for Apple to have to field a number of support calls about it.

Oh dang. I feel bad for the plants that were fooled by this. But that looks identical to the Apple website.... i could see how they would fall for that.

+1 for the scam looking legit enough to pass. Hey, in hindsight, that scam site looks dead on.

-1,254,345 for being a dick. Some people are going have some screwed up lives. That really sucks.
