There is always a catch. You either have to big 10 friends, AND sign up for some online thing that costs money, AND do 10 other things that will probably lead to the loss of your first born child.

Dont fall for it. :tazz:

:) nice one, Justin! :tazz:

While I'm sure you won't have to give up your first born child...you will have to do everything else just short of that. I haven't found a single one of those "free ipod" type things yet that aren't scams.

From what ive rad you can technically do it, as long as you cancel all the payments to the things you have had to register once the "trial" period runbs out. But you still need to hand out credit card details and get 10 friends to do the same and you cant then be one of their friends either. While your technically able to do it, know one is actually daft enough to do it.

Well, you'll probably get your "free* ipods, but there will be a catch. You'll have to join a website and refer 10 friends or something like that.

These adds about free ipods and mp3 players are always junk - don't bother.

Almost anything that says "Free" has some sort of catch. I don't even look at these adds anymore. Every website these days has them.

Well the worst that can happen is that they can charge you 10x as much as the i-pods are in the shops....

No they can probably do worse, like identity theft or something. But it all comes with crapware that i have seen. And everyone should already know you can't get anything free, since its always "free". There's always going to be a catch period.

Post removed as it had a link (possible spam) disguised within the post. Please remember to NOT post links to things like these "free ipod offers". As stated elsewhere in the thread, many times it is actually a scam...and you can end up getting a lovely little parting gift for visiting. (read...VIRUSES)

first...i agree with scot you sound like either a spammer or a gratis employee...but since you didn't do any over spamming (link posting and what not...we'll let you stay for now

second

If you agree then you are condemning the intelligence of the USA.

i'm from the usa...we're known to be gullible...can't be avoided...alot of the malware infections we treat here are due to "offers" such as these..for free software and products...so..excuse us for being cynical...is a free ipod realy worth the possibility of being infected with loads of virrii and malware? i think not
