I don't know if ezlaptop is a scam or not, but I gambled on it anyway. I question people who say they received their laptop in a "couple months" because I signed up in October 2004 and I don't believe I've ever missed an email. Maybe I am getting more spam, it doesn't bother me to click the DELETE button. As of today I have 178 credits, so I'm anxiously awaiting the next 32 messages. No, I don't read them - I just click the link to get the credits. It takes almost no time at all. You just have to remember to log in & read them before they are dumped out of your inbox (it holds 10 messages at a time). So, I'm trying to attach this PDF I made of the screen showing all the emails I've "read" so far. I haven't referred anyone, so I don't have any credits for that. I'm not sure if the people you refer have to just click your link or they actually have to sign up. I'm not recommending it to anyone until my laptop arrives! I'm working on a website to track how this goes, it should be up in the next few days @ www.geocities.com/jghaddock. I'll try & keep you all up-to-date & keep as much evidence as I can. Just out of curiosity, what would make someone believe I did get the laptop as promised when I hit 210 points? Hope I finally solve the mystery of ezlaptop! jenn

[FONT=Geneva][SIZE=1][COLOR=purple] Hi all! I'm new here and my name is Renee. I have found so many informative posts here that I decided to join! What I wanted to share was about ezlaptop. I have achieved my 210 points last week and I got my tracking number. I was told that it was up for approval when I put the purchase through for my laptop. I have since emailed them three times with no response. This is NOT encouraging to me because they usually respond to my emails. I don't have spam settings on so it's not that either. I am anxiously awaiting and it's getting harder! LOL I wish I knew how long this would take. If it works..I will do this again. We shall see...<crossing fingers> :tazz:

Heh, let me tell you this much. I got to 210 points about 3 weeks ago and have heard nothing yet from them. I have sent them emails with no response and when I enter in my tracking number now nothing happens. When I first put my order through it gave me the tracking number and said it was awaiting approval.

It's become silent from them. They used to be very good in responding to emails at one time, I used to get a response immediately back in answer to any question. I'm not happy with all the reviews I'm hearing about them so far, no one seems to know anyone who has gotten a laptop. So I sit here waiting to see. I have a ton of friends who will sign up under me if it works. Hmmmm The clock is ticking. lol

I did find on one web page that said someone waited about 6 months but finally got their laptop. So we shall see. :tazz:

Just reading the EZlaptop conditions it's obvious that the only way to accumulate enough credits to get a laptop is by getting other people to join the scheme and pay their money - just reading adverts will never do it. In other words its a carefully disguised pyramid selling operation. - Enough said?!!

I thought I just add my story here to sorta' "LICK MY WOUNDS". Signed up Auguset, 2004, completed 210 points May 27th, 2005. Logged on, cashed in my chips, got order # 827 and that was the last time I heard anything from EZLAPTOP. It's funny, we spend soooo much money on junk, but this $5.00 and the endless clicking on senseless UK and other BS-ads really ;) pisses me off! :ph34r:. Think for one minute: 210 points, each Mailer Package costs the advertiser $74.95 ( X 210 = $15,739.50) Almost $16.000 and they don't even have the courtesy to come up with some BS reason to deny the prize. :oops: I'll be happy with that!!! Just send an email telling me I did not meet the requirements for a FREE VAIO LAPTOP since I did not have any referalls. I commend them on this perfect Pyramide Scheme if I received an email like that. At least be honest about it. I have yet to see a person who has received a FREE VAIO. I hate to admit that my dad was right all along:

THERE IS NO SUCH A THING AS FREE LUNCH!

:idea: [bleep] I hate when he is right... :tazz:

I know EXACTLY what you mean. I would be happy with a simple email stating that they can't send it or ANYTHING. They are not replying to me STILL! I have decided that I am going to make a complaint to paypal. They said that we could do that so I think that everyone who is getting stiffed by ezlaptop should make a complaint with paypal. You can call them..they have an 800 number. Geeee imagine that!!!! It's because paypal is a legit company. LOL UGH.

Anyway...I did refer four people during my tenure of collecting points with ezlaptop...so I don't know what the heck the problem is. I am VERY VERY angry though and I wish there was something that could be done.

Any ideas anyone??? Other than making a complaint to paypal? :tazz:
