Kentucky computer users are being alerted to a modified scam where con artists use a Microsoft reference in their unethical pitch.

The Better Business Bureau is warning Kentuckians to avoid falling for a new scam that targets those wanting the new Apple iPhone.

A bogus email is being reported that tells recipients that they have won an iPhone 5S through a promotional drawing, in an effort to get the would-be victim’s personal information. Similar scams are  appearing on social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
