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.

Hmmm . . . I am fairly sure I got a t-shirt from travel USA. I will have to check when I get home, but I KNOW it was from a travel site. Which one is the one with the big eyes in the binolculars . . . I think it was from them. laugh out loud

What happened with the Speedway offer? Is it the one with the speedy rewards card loaded with enough points for a $10 GC?

I found thelink [speedyrewardsonline.com]on another site, but it does not work now.

Interesting development...

I emailed Speedway about that, telling them that there was a phishing site using their name and I included a link to the site.

Here's what I get back today:
Dear Mr.

This is an acknowledgement of your E-mail and to let you know it was a
legitimate promotion, it was a limited time offer and is no longer
available.

Each month our company offers new Speedy Rewards promotions. You can
find out about our current promotions at speedyrewards.com.

Thank you for taking the time to write us. We are always interested in
hearing from our customers whatever the reason.

Sincerely,
Linda
Speedway SuperAmerica LLC Customer Service

WTF? Confused I thought it was the general consensus (with some type of evidence to back it up) that the site in question was nefarious in nature....

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.
I agree. Every magazine I have ever done a review for has come..sometimes in doubles because i forgot I signed up before.

ur wrong, they will charge you 15 bucks if you dont cancel within 7 days of signing up, they say 30 day trial but if you read carefully in asteriks its only 7 day trial, and always use a vcc to avoid these types of problems

Get a free beer mug from freebeermug.com. You don't even need to give them an email address. The only catch is that the mug will have a company's logo on it!
