Hi,

just recently I have seen sources that say that websites such as free ipods.com are not a scam. News from the bbc also says that if you refer mates and sign up you will get a FREE ipod. is it all true or all a scam
Same with free flatscreens.com

What do you think

Thanks
Ben

Read these terms and conditions. You would be cheaper going and buying an i-pod,

Well, the cynical side of me says scam, that's probably why I miss out on things, but there's no such thing as a free meal ticket. It probably opens up a whole avalanche of spam.

Is this just another pyramid scheme, 5 friends have to sign up, and then each of them have to sign up 5 friends and before long to have millions trying to sign up for a free ipod
