Scam Alert: Free iPad Beta Testing
BetaTestingInc is a legit-looking site (it’s safe to visit) and all it does is ask for addresses of your friends. Get enough of them to reply and you get to keep an iPad. One TechBite subscriber took a bite and I’ve been getting lots of spam because of him. This guy got nailed with a predecessor of BetaTestingInc (same scam, different name) and lots of Facebook users have been pitched with the iPad scam, so pass along the warning.
Copy Machines, an ID Theft Risk? (Yep)
You know that copy machine you use at the office, the library, the local office-services store. [This is scary. -ksk] It has a hard drive that’s storing every copy you’ve made. Watch the expose. [Thanks, Don.]
