iTunes Scam: "Send Us Your iTunes Card Codes"

| | Comments (0)
The below site:

itunes-multiplier.webs.com

should be avoided, as it's nothing more than a cheap con trick. The gag works like this - you go out and buy an iTunes card (which use codes that are redeemed inside iTunes to credit your account).

Then you see the above website promising it can double your points and start to feel a little greedy. Here is the "multiplier":

Yes, you too can enter your own code and send it to a stranger, safe in the knowledge that in a few minutes they'll have registered your code to their account. Still, buying music for scammers is very philanthropic. I guess.

I particularly enjoy the lame technobabble that scam sites such as this employ; this one is better than most, for comedy if nothing else.

"Here at our site, we work with some of the best names in computer debuggers and specialists to make things like this possible.  Over many months of research, our programmers have determined a way to multiply iTunes card's value.  What happens is:

Once you enter your iTunes cards information into our Multiplier, it is sent to our servers where our team runs it with a private program called WINMILL.  This program sends the information as a link directly to Apple Inc., who credits the card with extra uses."


...WINMILL?

I guess we know what the scammer sees when he opens his curtains each morning...
