The "Free Gift World" Scam

You see this type of offer everywhere, usually a pop up that gives you the fine print details but is the worst one because they don't use just regular pop ups but audio recordings that promise a "free prize".

Which in reality is not anywhere close to the term "free" because you have to complete a varying number of "offers" that not only cost money but that most people in their right mind would not be interested in hence their using a place like Free Gift World to get customers. Even if you complete your offers they find ways to not send your free gift. As one example, get tired of them spamming your email box and decide to "unsubscribe"? Gee you just lost your "free" merchandise that takes 180 days to first get thru the whole offer process then an additional 4 to 6 weeks for delivery.

What's sad is the numbers of people that get roped into this that do one or two of the offers, profiting the companies who help contribute to people being ripped off while knowing that the majority of people will never meet all of the requirements for the "free" gift.

There is no such thing as a free lunch...and Free Gift World is really "Fee Gift World"
