如果Lady Gaga要送她的“小怪兽们”一台限量版iPad,谁不想要?(【注】Lady Gaga称其歌迷为“Little Monsters”)一个出现在Gaga姐Facebook主页上的骗局,成功愚弄了很多粉丝点击赢一台iPad的链接。Sophos公司的Graham Cluley发现了这一骗局,据他说,这个假比赛的规则和注册都链接到了另一个博客页面上。发放iPad假消息的人并未逍遥法外,一小时内即被捕获。

"Lady Gaga's new iPad comes out in 3 days! So for the next 72 hours we will be hosting a massive giveaway to all the Mother Monster fans. Sign up and receive your special Lady Gaga edition iPad in time for the Holidays! For contest rules and registration visit the link below," a Sophos blog post quoted the scammers as saying.
“新的Lady Gaga版iPad要在3天内问世啦!所以接下来的72个小时,我们将发放大量赠品给所有的粉丝们。只要报名,你就能在圣诞节准时收到特别的Lady Gaga版iPad!更多比赛规则和注册详情,请点击下面的链接查看。”Sophos公司在一篇博文中引用了骗子的话。

But innocent fans were in for a shock as the scam link directed them to a site asking for their personal information.According to , "Lady Gaga's Twitter account had been hijacked to promote the same fake iPad scam. Lady Gaga herself later tweeted, 'Phew. The hacker is over! And just in time, I'm on my way to Japan! So excited to spend Xmastime with my TokyoMonsters!'"
但是天真的粉丝们免不了要遭遇打击,因为这个假链接只是要把他们引入一个网站,然后套取他们的个人信息。根据msnbc网的描述,“Lady Gaga的Twitter账号也已被盗,并发布了同样的iPad骗局。后来Gaga自己也唏嘘了一阵:‘我去,这黑客玩得太大了吧!而且那时我恰好在去日本的路上!我还那么兴奋地期待,跟我在东京的小怪兽们一起欢度圣诞呢!’”
