Official thread - Please do not create Freebies threads from following sites - Scam Sites, Address Harvesters, Phishing Sites *Please update*

Posted 05-16-2008 by FromHyd-Back2India at 03:04 PM
As we have a huge freebies section it is important to have thread that has a list of all scam sites to prevent us either from posting threads or wasting time on items that never come.

Others on SD recommended me add these sites http://samspade.org/ and http://www.whois.net/ to get more info. thanks Isis

Adding information about such sites are also available at hiddenmysteries.org [hiddenmysteries.org]

I was hit some by below few of them in the recent past and (somebody on this forum provide me the link (couldn't find him name as my original thread was deleted) and thought it will help this forum. Please spread the word about this thread so that everybody on these forms can benefit from it

Here is a compiled listing of SCAM SITES, ADDRESS HARVESTERS, PHISHING SITES.

Feel free to add any that you find.

http://www.sutterscreek.com/ - offers free gifts that do not come, sometimes 'free with S&H' - payment will go through, but items wont come

Ringtonica ~ They post a new freebie each month which never comes, but spam does.




the mini football offer from theexerciseguru.com, BEWARE

I would add freemilliondollarbills.com/index.htm -- it is coming around again on smaller freebie boards.

http://getyourbeats.co.cc/
This is getting visitors from Facebook who believe they will get free beats if they 'attend' and invite all of their friends. The site is just making a profit from a content locker.

Good, but I don't think this belongs in the freebie section unless it's within the rules, or as something like

"Please do not post freebies from the following sites" in the title or something.

Should *never* sign up for anything unless they're a trusted and reputable company. Do your research before you give out your information!

Great idea OP, and about time someone did this.
I am glad it is a sticky.
I hate when people post sites and don't check them out first. Maybe we could add some info as to how to notice a scam site/freebies with participation.
I don't think a lot of people know what they look like and tend to rush to post stuff.nod

Great Job.Thumbup

RewardsGold should not be on this list. Every magazine I have ever ordered from them has always come & I have never once gotten spam from them. All the others I completely agree with. TY Op for posting this compilation.

Quite a nice list, and I thank you for posting it, However........I am concerned with seeing RewardsGold on the list. I have signed up for and recieved many a magazine suscrpition, free of charge, from them, and if I get a bit of spam in my inbox...well...that's what a junk email account is for Wink JMO on that.
The only "spam" I have received from Rewards Gold is offers for more magazines from them. There is a woman's magazine that offers a 4 year subscription if you join their club/website, remedylife.com, and they spammed me to death! If you want this magazine try to find an offer where you don't have to join Remedy Life.

Have ordered from Rewards Gold several times - magazines always came and never got any spam! Pretty confident about the spam as one was for my MIL and I set up a brand new email for her subscription.

Glad to see some of the others I've learned to avoid on the list!

Any way to keep it alphabetized? That way it would be easy to check a site before entering info.

Thanks!

Rewards Gold is not a problem. They send the mags but not the spam. Remedy Life, on the other hand, is SPAM.
