Hello Friend,

My name is Mark Zuckerberg, Chief Executive Officer of Facebook. We have recently partnered up with Apple regarding a one-time promotional event today, we are giving away complimentary Apple iPhones and iPads to randomly selected individuals who have been fortunate to be selected as one of our newest winners for today. We randomly selected users from our systems database and you have matched with our latest drawing.

We have partnered up with Apple inc to advertise their most popular product yet, the Apple iPhone and iPad. Once again, we are running this promotion for one-day only. All you need to do is CLICK HERE to go to our website made for this promotion and fill out this short survey to get yours for free. Simply make sure you enter your email so we can locate our records to guarantee that we have reserved one for you. That is it!

Congratulations on winning a free Apple iPhone4 and iPad2. If you have any question or concerns, feel free to e-mail me back. However, you need to claim your free iPhone and iPad first to ensure one will be set-aside for you before the deadline ends. We do understand that you may not receive this email until after the deadline, but, we advise you check the web site and enter your email to see if we still have yours on hold, which we often-times do because others haven't claimed theirs in time.

Mark Zuckerberg
CEO, Facebook
