“So Gratis Networks has set up a site called FreeiPods.com that is giving away your choice of an iPod mini, a 15GB iPod, or a $250 gift certificate to the iTunes Music Store. All you have to do is sign up, click on one of their offers, and then convince five other people to do the same. We smelled a scam in there somewhere, or possibly seasonal, and since our whiny emails to the company asking them to explain how exactly this worked went unanswered, we decided to just call them up to try and sort things out.
The company rep we spoke to insisted that this thing was for real and that they had already given away about 400 iPods to people.”
Internet Marketing Prays on the laziness of The American People
When will we as Americans finally learn that nothing in this life is Free.
Freeipods.com will send you thru a maze of offers each supposedly bringing you closer and close to your ipod mini. Catch Phrases like “Your Almost There” or “Complete our Survey” never explaining to the user that they have to take a credit card offer and convince 5 of your friends to take one as well. But your friends do not receive anything unless they get 5 of their friends to go to the website and pick an offer. They play the odds that most americans will sign up and then give up trying to actually fulfill this maze. The have given away 400 ipods out of the 100,000 registration they have collected in the last 6 months.
Unless you are hooked up with a blog or newsgroups where people collectively work together for the free ipods, don’t sign up to anything that says FREE ever with a real email. These companies “whore” out the data to no end. If you are ever really bored and what to see how quickly and how much your data gets distributed.
1) Sign up to a new Yahoo account
2) Go to Freeipods.com and sign up for the registration page
3) Sit back for 24-48 hours and watch this mailbox get flooded with debt, mortgage, spyware, erectile enhancement and so on….
Please don’t sign up unless you know how the game is played and have the motivation to beat them at it. (https://methodshop.com)
