And I have no interest in telephones, so should they also stop using those? ;)

lol after following through skipping the facebook advertising stuff, to apply for the voucher, you must complete a survey.
The survey allows you to win an ipad

The terms at the bottom of the survey website are as follows:

Planet49 Asia Pacific guarantees that this competition is carried out.
After entry into the competition draw, users are presented with a questionnaire and promotional offers from third party advertisers. Completing the questionnaire is not a requirement for entry into the competition, although users acknowledge and consent to their email address and other contact information supplied being provided to third party advertisers upon entry.

If it's on facebook, or has facebook logos & like buttons, it's a scam. No exceptions.

I swear if stds were contractible via the internet every single facebook user would be dead by now.

freitasm: Planet 49 runs all sorts of crappy ads around the "you won"... And it is not only on Facebook. Even TVNZ runs their ads.



Yes but apparently sometimes there is a winner.

Typical facebook bait/scam that will have you clicking through millions of survey's whilst giving your personal details to spammers.

Joking. Don't fall into such a trap, if it sounds too good to be true it usually is!

Ah they must have loaded some more vouchers, the counter went back up to 973, again :)




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

Ha I was just going to say that... keep refreshing and you get more chances! It's going to cost Bunnings a fortune. I wonder if it is targeted more to Aussies. I have never heard anyone refer to it as Bunnies before.

Also, interesting Bunnings aren't on the social network scene. Wonder if that is why they were targeted, makes it harder for them to get the word out it's a scam to ol' Facebook folk.

Nope.  These same types have done it with Woolworths and other brands which are big into social media.  Frankly, it's the same as those "we've got 5000 iPads to give away because we accidentally unsealed the box!" type scams.

Usually they're twofold - first is they hand your details to spammers and those crappy surveys that they get a few cents on each response.  Second, is that they get a lot of likes on a page that they then sell to companies as part of a "social media package".  You know all those places that sell pages pre-loaded with likes from real people?  This is how they get them.

I wasn't aware of people selling likes in that way.
