HTC EVO being used in MyRewardsVault spam scam

Evo-myrewardsvault-scam

At a time when most scams use promises of free iPads and iPhones to trick unsuspecting people into giving up their personal information, I suppose we should all be "proud" that the HTC EVO 4G is being used as bait too. An offer to get the "just released" handset for free has popped up on places like FaceBook and Twitter, and while I'm sure you can find (fake) testimonials from people who claim that it's a legitimate offer, it really isn't.

MyRewardsVault, the company responsible for the offer, is well known to be a spam site that will end up being responsible for your inbox being spammed and your phone ringing and receiving unsolicited text messages once they get their mitts on your info.

To receive the free EVO, MyRewardsVault requires that you complete at least 8 "offers" that "may require a purchase to qualify." None of them can be done anonymously, so you may as well just go ahead and stand on the street corner passing out flyers with your name, address, phone number, and email address printed on them. Your privacy is worth a free HTC EVO, right?

If you refuse to believe that anyone would use the EVO for dishonest purposes, then hit the link below and let us all know when you get that free phone.
