iphone 6 for $1 scam masquerading as an article by a journalist
Yahoo you are allowing your pager readers and members to be ripped off. I wonder if any of them will take you on for damages for your negligence in apparently allowing scams to be placed on your home page without checking them out.
A company (supposedly Telstra or so it says) appears to have placed an article on the Yahoo7 home page showing how you can get an iphone6 for $1 in Australia.
This is a scam. I tried it and I am out over $125 and no reply from the company in over a week and no sign of a phone.
It seems to be tied up with a company called allyourmusic and you sign up for one month's subscription for $1 (actually 1 Euro) and you get your phone.
When I saw that the continuing cost to me was at least 80 Euro per month ($120) I emailed them immediately and said to delete my account and not under any circumstances to charge my account with any more money.
Two to three days after that my account has been hit three times ( 2 for 1 euro and once for 80 euros).
I've emailed them three times and all I've got was two automated replies. I'VE HAD TO CANCEL MY CARD TO MAKE SURE NO MORE CHARGES HIT IT.
DO NOT TOUCH THIS SCAM FOR ANYTHING. IT IS A RIP OFF AND THE PERSON WHO WROTE THIS STORY SHOULD HAVE DONE SOME INVESTIGATION BEFORE WRITING IT.
I had the same problem, it is a scam an Yahoo does not give a stuff as long as they get their advertising $$$$$$$$$$$$$$. I cancelled 30 seconds as I realised and was told I would get a refund, yeah right. Still waiting for my bank to pay me back.

I was lucky my card has international trans blocked, it is not until you get to the fine print stage does the scam become clear and there is only a 1 in 10 chance you might "win" a phone.
Unfortunately the above about IPhone 6 for $1 happened to me and they took $124.5 from my account returned $4.5 and refused to refund the $120
