Fake DealsDirect iPhone 5 ‘Offer’ Is A Very Obvious Scam


Another week, another Apple-related scam. This currently-circulating message (with a faked DealsDirect sender address) is a solid example of the principle ‘If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is’. With iPhones at full price in short supply, why would anyone sell one for $150?

That said, there’s an even more obvious indicator that it’s a fake: the link in the email goes to some kind of football betting site (guessing from the URL). Notice also that ‘iPhone’ is capitalised incorrectly and the weird price format. Scam, pure and simple.
