“iPhone 5 testers” SMS scam now targeting Android users
Apple’s iPhone 5 is one of this year’s most anticipated mobile devices, so it’s not surprising that some want to take unfair advantage of that. There’s an iPhone 5 testers SMS scam that’s been reported by iPhone users since early February (there’s even a thread over at Apple Support Communities about this), and now it’s targeting Android users, too.
As you can see in the screenshot below (taken on a Samsung Galaxy Nexus in Canada), the SMS reads: “Apple is looking for iPhone 5 testers! The first 1000 users that go to [scam website] and enter a code will get to test & keep a new iPhone 5.”
Needless to say, if you get this kind of message don’t reply to it, and don’t click on any link it may include. Because you will certainly not get any iPhone 5 to test and keep.
