Scam about Apple Ipad giveaway for Testing

I previously received some of these messages in my facebook profile telling about giving away of Apple iPad2 to test out. I don’t really believed such kind of messages. I tried to click the link that was given in the message and I was redirected to a website with a URL below;
http://mybrandprizes.com/ip/index.php?lid=ip_13326_2890e&add_offerid=7993191&addomain=rsgauge10.com&addomain_id=62&uniclk=true

They will ask you to select the color of the Ipad2 and the zip code of the city/country where you live. I tried typing the zip code in Cebu City, Philippines and Brussels, Belgium but they won’t accept it. I tried a zip code in Las Vegas, Nevada and then it goes, you can continue with the registration. Just a reminder, never ever register because this site is a Spam or Scam and with malicious adware according to MacAfee Site Advisor.

Be very careful with this scam and never ever give your personal information like full name, address, birthday, telephone number. etc. When I read their disclosure it says, “ Your information will be shared with our marketing partners.“. This is not really good.

Better delete it in your facebook profile or inbox if ever you received it.
Below are the messages that I received in facebook.

“Ruby Guess what? You know who just got a new Apple iPad2 to test out and keep without paying a cent. I don’t think this will last long, they are only sending out a limited supply of promo ipad2’s in each area so you should hurry. It did not come with any leather case or fancy accessories but who cares, it was free! This is where I got it from..
