Hello.

There is a Facebook page that gives away free Apple products for like 100 winners a day. Is it not true right?

    Why would you think that any website is giving away free products?  I understand the site exists, but so what?

     

    If you want an Apple product, buy one.

     

    There is a huge difference in entering a contest from a major company to win free products and signing up for some silly facebook page that allegedly gives away free products on a daily basis.

     

    The site is a scam, report it to facebook.

    Yes, I do believe the page is a scam. But if some one asks a specialist a question I believe that the specialist job is to thank that person and explain that it is scam and will be reported.

    Unfortunately they got a RUDE, Sarcastic, and Un-justifiable response.

    If everyone that wanted a Macbook like myself could afford one we would already have it. Unfortunately not everyone can. So we Join stupid little contest to try our luck in winning our dreams.

    Well, when one of Apple's "specialists" comes along and responde (will not be happening) maybe they will be a little more polite.

    However, this is a user to user technical support forum.  Get over being offended.

    You are correct, sir, it is a scam.  Apple has nothing to do with this.

    you did not receive an answer from a specialist - these Apple employees' posts have a black banner at the top of their post and include the Apple logo. The remainder of the posters here are users like yourself volunteering their time to help. Also, Apple does not run or own Facebook, so any FB user can and should report such scams to FB.
