Lady Gaga Facebook Scam
December 19, 2011 by staff
Lady Gaga Facebook Scam, We all know that using popular products like the Apple iPad coupled with a celebrity’s name is a great method for scamming users on Facebook. This one, however, isn’t your typical Lady Gaga Facebook scam.
Scammers actually managed to hijack Gaga’s Facebook Page and send out the scam to all her fans. They even got her Twitter account too. The bands Maroon 5 and Blink-182 also had their Facebook Pages hit by similar scams, according to Sophos.
The Facebook version said something like “Lady Gaga’s new iPad comes out in 3 days! So for the next 72 hours we will be hosting a massive giveaway to all the Mother Monster fans. Sign up and receive your special Lady Gaga edition iPad in time for the Holidays! For contest rules and registration visit the link below.” It was then followed by a link titled “Lady Gaga Edition iPad: Lady Gaga’s Official iPad Giveaway!” The Twitter version reads as follows: “Monsters, I’m giving away FREE iPad2’s to each one of you in the spirit of the holidays Go to http://bit.ly/s5MTqM to receive one!”
The Maroon 5 version had the following description: “Hello fans! We’re giving away a bunch of iPads for the holidays! OBEY and sign up for one now. Excellent gift for anyone!” I wasn’t able to grab the text for the Blink-182 variant as it had already been taken down.
