Just now received an email that Gmail has teamed up with Apple to randomly give iPad 2 to it’s users. When you read the email it definitely appears to be from a reliable source. In fact it reminds you many times about the security problems with links and email spam etc.
Well, do you think it’s possible. Let’s think about it for a second and judge ourselves, could it be really be getting an iPad for free…
Couple of things to notice here to confirm its legality:
- If it is from Google like it says it is, why would Google send it as an image attachment. If it was a pdf file, it would have been probably OK.
- Google and Apple for sure will never team up to promote Gmail. With all the changes in iOS6, you can understand what’s going on between the two companies.
- Why would Google giveaway iPad and not the Galaxy Nexus or Galaxy 7 tablet instead? Wouldn’t Google promote its own products to promote Gmail?
So overall, no matter how much this email sounds authentic, it is ultimately a Spam or hoax or whatever you call it. If you also got one like that today, then simply DELETE it.
Enjoy and have a good weekend.
