The content of the scam
If you live in France and you want the new iPhone 6, then it would may be the most exciting article that you'll ever read.
Here's the deal: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL) gives the new iPhone 6 64 GB version to french citizens for €1. Yes you read correctly a dollar.
As part of a special promotion, Apple works with Funkyclock its reliable distribution partner, to offer iPhone 6 which costs 99% off the regular retail price.
Why provide this crazy promotion? Director of Marketing, Joel Branson said, "last year, the market share of Apple in France was lowered to 35% and lost against Google Android in the world. Apple may resume french users by offering extremely low-cost iPhones people and convert them into loyal Apple customers who will spread the message to their friends"
It sounds too good to be true? This is what Richard Watkinson age of 29 Perth also thought. He decided tanter and he received his iPhone 6 €1 by mail a few days later.
Richard explains: "at first, I thought that it was just another scam on the internet, but then I did some research and I saw that Funckyclock is a development legitme company and partner of Apple. I decided to risk €1. That's less than the price of a cup of coffee anyway. 3 days later, I check my mail and I am glad to see a new shiny box with an Apple logo on it "."
Apparently, this tactic promotional "practically free" is a common practice among large companies with big marketing budgets. For example, Burger King launched a similar campaign in 2013, offering 20 000 free Whoppers on Facebook.

Why it's a scam in my opinion?
Already one dollar and one euro is not like that.

Already learn this €1, this is one euro and that much, $ 1, it is a (U.S.) dollar my coco.
Spelling errors and the turns of phrase in bad french for an official site
With large means, ladle. As there may be mistakes in a small site even there…
A promotion that ends tonight (undated) for 6 months
Still the same article with the promotion that ends tonight (instead of giving a specific date) and if you go tomorrow, ben it ends tonight, and this "tonight" hard 6 months…
you have an iphone and a free shuffle
Bigger is more it happening?
A luxury smartphone that costs at least 700 Euros proposed for 1 Euro? It's always weird.
Play on the emergency
Less than 100 in stock, it smells bad. Classic technique for sale.
Unable to validate a comment
You can not leave a comment, the button does not work, this is only an image and not a java script like the real facebook.
corollary: if it is impossible to validate a comment how comments could they appear?
It is that they are fake.
Profiles are not facebook profiles but from another site
Obviously comments are fictitious.
by clicking on the links I come across a pig site on pc
or at worst a scam because mobiledirect in the link is often made to subscribe to your blind to €4,5 /semaines with sms + without using your credit card (true scam that goes through your telephone operator, which is an accomplice).
If we are to believe the UFC Que Choisir. Users are then debited not only the sum of 1 Euro but also especially the months following, a recurring subscription from 50 to 90 Euros for music or online games sites. These names are: Rockyfroggy.com, Radioplanets.com, DealsOfToday.eu, or Wonkabonka.com.
I've seen the pub which proposed a reverse auction site, but the site has a robot that bids you never letting win. What is illegal and not honest.
Scam pure and hard.
