BBB Warns Of Scams Relating To Death Of Steve Jobs
Buffalo, NY (WIBX) – The Better Business Bureau New York is warning internet users and consumers to watch out for scams related to the death of Apple CEO Steve Jobs.The BBB says within hours of Jobs’ death, scammers began announcing that companies were giving away free Apple products in memory of Steve Jobs and they say it’s just the beginning.
Officials say in a recent Facebook scam, an ad instructed people to click on a link to get a free iPad.
After clicking on the link, users were asked to complete an online survey that required personal information, which often leads to identify theft.
The Better Business Bureau is reminding consumers that if it’s sound too good to be true, it is.
