I saw the same group.  No information on Google yet.  I'd say any group created by a 16 year old girl promising to give away laptops to half the people in the group is probably false.  I'm going to go ahead and report it on facebook.  It's how I roll.

100% hoax.  The group asks users to enter a javascript code into their address bar which grabs every friend's name and adds them to an invite for the group.

I guess we should all be lucky the JS isn't more malicious.  Because we all know how stupid people can be.

Re: Hoax.... Free laptop?

Not sure where you guys are seeing this on Facebook.  The above link only goes to the Facebook main page.  Is the ad coming from one of Dell's Facebook accounts?  If so, and you no longer wish to see them, click on "hide" located on the right side of the Facebook post. 

If it's coming from your Facebook friend, then you could un-friend them or tell them you no longer wish to see these promos.

Re: Hoax.... Free laptop?

It`s not from Dell, it`s from another company. There is also one on there now for free Ipads. Don`t fall for it.
