Default A free iPod!!??!! What?

I heard about this site where you get a free iPod, from what I heard it seems totally legitimate, I know I want an iPod, so just incase anyone else wanted one too, why not? It only takes a second, and if you get a free iPod out of it I think it is well worth it... they don't ask for a CC or anything of that sor

Your free iPod


note: mods if this is against any policy, I am sorry feel free to delete/lock this... [/url]


EDIT... I spoke too soon... basically how it works is if someone here signs up for one of their offers I get a free iPod... like if someone off of my referral signs up for Ancestory.com, Columbia house, or something like that then I get a free iPod... then you can e-mail your own referral code out to people and if they order YOU get your free iPod... I think... I am now somewhat confused the more that I read this..

EDIT EDIT... the one option is to try some miracle burn diet pills... I personally don't beilve in these... but its only $5 for shipping them to you and that counts as your credit... so if you were thinking of doing this there is that option... or if you have good credit you can apply for the e-bay credit card and if you get approved that counts as your credit...

Just remember the old adage "If something seems to good to be true, it probably is" the older you get you will learn that you never get something for nothing. Everything has a price. There is no telling how many lists your name will go on if you sign up.

You could just use a 3rd or 4th e-mail address that you use only for spam... that is what I did.


Here you go...

4. Eligibility for Receiving a Free Item for Referral-based websites

(a) For this particular website, freeiPods.com, users must do the following to be eligible to get approval to receive their free product:

i. Complete and get credit for at least one offer themselves.

ii. Refer at least 5 unique people who join and also correctly complete an offer under the terms listed in this document.
So basically if you get 5 people to sign up under your reffrence then you get a free one... it seems worth it to me...

We also reserve the right to change the methods through which free items are earned. This may include, but is not limited to, increasing the number of friends you have to refer or adding more steps to confirm that you have a legitimate account. We may also add or remove any product listed as an incentive at any time. If we replace a product, the new product may not be of equal value.

so, basically, you have have to add 1,000,000 friends and your ipod would look like this

It'* called a pyramid scheme. Only the person at the tip top gets anything out of it in the end. You get hosed. I suggest NO ONE does this, as you will never get what you want. Even hardcore computer guys have seen this and tried to find a way to actually get it within their life. Sorry to rain on the parade , but this is a basically a scam.
