Free iPad offer on Facebook and Twitter is a scam

Every generation has its fair share of people who are gullible enough to believe that there is a free lunch – only to find out the painful way later on that they have been conned. Well, you might have spotted a message on Facebook or Twitter which offers a free iPad, and we would suggest you avoid this like a plague since this scam that spreads through hacked accounts will ask you to check out a website that touts to send free iPads to everyone who responds. Twitter and Facebook are aware of the situation, with the former countering this by sending out password resets to hacked individuals. Personal information is a very sacred thing, so it makes perfect sense to have some common sense (which isn’t so common after all) to be wary of all the “free” offers floating around the Internet.
