Woman hangs up on $10,000 call from Apple
Source: PRIZE FAIL
The source, it's broken.
Really? For something THAT important, they tried to phone her?
And not actually go to her home with a special event, like people in suits?
She was lucky Apple gave her another chance and called again otherwise she would have been screwed big time.
And a ridiculously oversized itunes card!
Apple are the ones who screwed up.
They should've known better that NOBODY would've believed a prize message delivered by telephone, nobody ever does.
It's called cold calling.
Edit: the more I think about it, the more it just plain baffles me, it's a company that deals in digital downloads for fucks sakes.
To buy shit on itunes you need an email address.
I disagree, Im someone who callers winners of our companies competitions. I have yet to have 1 person hang up on me
And calling them is just a tad more personal and companies liek to do that
How uninspired would receiving an email saying "Yay gratz you won, u 1337 bro" be? Id be happier with someone who called me with enthousiasm saying "OMG U WON U SO PWN GRATZLOL OMGWTFBBQ"
Well hoping to get the 20 billionth app to get my $20000
To be honest, if I wasn't aware of the promotion (like she most likely wasn't), and someone phoned me up telling me I had won a $10,000 gift card I probably would have hung up too.
Agree,everyone at first would think of it as a scam because its not like everyday you will get 10000$ from a phone call
Given the crazy amount of email and phone scams these days I would of hung up to most likly...
Apple doesn't simply GIVE money away, they take it.
I'd be skeptical as well if I received a call saying otherwise.
Post your e-mail address and I'll send you something from email@example.com.
E-mail isn't secure either.
it is called phishing
Come on, think that through a little.
If you bought the winning 10 billionth app, they'd know what it was, and be able to tell you that because of their records.
Love this clip!
Congratulations, you just won a $10,000 iTunes gift card!
sounds awfully similar to
Congratulations! You just won a free iPod nano!
$10000 in itunes?? No thanks....I'll take 5 or 6 macbook pro's instead and then I'll transfer my already vast collection of music to them. I would've guessed it was a scam by telephone or email, so either way I wouldn't have believed it.
