False Advertising - IPhone 5 Giveaway Countdown website theiphonepage.com

The IPhone 5 Giveaway Countdown promotion website below is bogus. This bogus promotion website promises an IPhone 5 after sharing and "liking" it on Facebook, when the ticking 24 hour countdown clock reaches zero. I think the intention of the scammer behind this promotion is to get as many Facebook users as possible to "like" and share this fake IPhone 5 promotion website.
