A word on 'Free iPod' offers

Post by Hawke »

As mentioned in a few previous posts, the whole 'free ipod' offer, while it may not fully fit the definition of a 'scam', nonetheless is a bad thing in many ways. A recent article on sfgate.com investigates exactly what occurs when one signs up for this 'offer'. I suggest that anyone considering joining in this promotion take a good hard look at this article.

Good article, Hawke! Seems like people see that word "Free" and all common sense and reason go out the window! I wonder how much time, effort and BS the guy that sold his had to go through???

I am bumping this thread so all the new members we've gotten since it was posted can read it.

Hawke, you can ignore my message. I found it myself! Thanks!

The article is really gud. It iterates the fact that nothing comes free of cost.
