    Hi everybody, i do not know if this is the right place to post this but i've just got a facebook invitation

    http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=142248829150770&index=1

    It's in spanish, if you take a closer look they ask you to invite at least 30 friends to this event in order to participate in a raffle ( or draw? i do not know the correct word) where you can win an ipad, ipod or iphone. It really looks like a SCAM! they advertise the following webpage

    http://www.applelatino.com.ar/la/concurso/

    whereas the official apple page for latin america is http://www.apple.com/la/

    What do you think?? is there a way to confirm this with Apple inc??

    Take this thread down, you are only advertising for the scammer. You have your answer, yes it is a scam and you even answered it yourself.

    Hahaha, the black frame for the competition is made in Paint?!?

    But I think it's good that the OP published this, so people can see it's a scam if the get to this page by searching. :)
