A scam claiming to offer free iPads has appeared on the Facebook page of pop phenomenon Lady Gaga. The webpage users were directed to was hosted on the free blogspot service, and has since been removed. Anyone who clicked on the link, and filled in online forms, may have unwittingly handed their personal information to scammers and potentially helped them earn revenue by completing online surveys. There are reports that the Facebook pages of the bands Maroon 5 and Blink 182 had also been hit by similar scams. It is, of course, particularly important that the administrators of popular Facebook pages – which can have many millions of fans – take security seriously to minimise the possibilities of passing a scam on. If nothing else, it’s not terribly good for the brand to annoy your fans or to put them at risk.
