i dont know if anything like this is not supposed to be allowed, if so just delete it.

I know many of you probably heard of it. It's called freephotoipods.com, and its completly legitimate as far as ive experianced(spelling?). Pretty much all you do is complete any one(1) trial for anyone of the websites affiliates(usually well known comanies), i would make sure to cancel it when you get credit for completing the offer, then you get 10 people to do the same. When thats finished they ship off your free item. They also have freeipods.com(normal older ipod) and a few others including flat screen tvs, and desktop PCs, etc. If you dont believe me, google it, they can explain how they get this to work. youll have more luck with results if you google freeipods since its its most well known version. Its all run by a company called gratis. Pretty much whenever you complete a trial, the company you did it for pays gratis. With that they get the people who have completed their tasks, ipods or whatever they picked.

if you want to start and try and get the photo ipod and help me out too then just click this link http://www.freephotoiPods.com/?r=12404932

take note that they track similiar IP addresses and home addresses. You can do each offer once per household (as in free ipod once, free tv once, free pc once)

thanks for taking the time to read this, i just thought id cue yas in on the opportunity.

This sounds very much similar to what financial pyramides do. The catch is that only those who get in very early are able to get anything if at all. Beware.

Classic pyramid scheme. Also, if the company goes bankrupt when you haven't gotten you're free stuff, you're out of luck.

A little math reveals the implausibility of these systems. How many times can you expand the base of a pyramid by a factor of 10 before you get more than the number of people on the planet (let alone the number of English speaking people on the internet willing to fill out these forms)? Not very many. 10 steps is already more that the population of the Earth.

Even if you're working under the assumption that this isn't a 100% scam, it only takes a few steps down from the top of the pyramid before there is no one left to participate.

Anyone want to set up an email account to test the spamability of that site? I'd never submit an email address to a site that asks for it, yet provides very little info about themselves.

It's not an iPod.
There's discussion on it here: http://groups.google.com.au/groups?hl=e ... G%3DSearch

i know the whole factor of it eventually running out of people to participate. But i know Gratis isnt placing a scheme. They have been out for a good 3 or 4 years now and all the internet free stuff schemes were deleted within a year. I know it does work as the fact that i know people (personally) who have already completed and recieved it. i didnt ask for a debate, just for anyone willing to help..
