Better Business Bureau Warns of iPad Scams

The Better Business Bureau has warned consumers to be wary of e-mail and Facebook offers to get free iPads in exchange for being a researcher or tester or buying items first. “What’s past is prologue, and it was inevitable that scammers would take advantage of the excitement over the iPad to rip people off, just like they did with the iPod and the iPhone,” said Alison Southwick, a spokeswoman for the bureau.
