http://www.theregister.co.uk/2005/07/04/matrix_oft/ For all of those you who haven't still realized the fact that "if sounds too good to be true, it most likely is". All of the "free iPod", "free PSP", "free whatever" scams are typically either a) pure scams that don't give you anything in return, but want your credit card details or personal details and pass these to criminal organizations that eventually will sky-rocket your CC bills or sell your personal details to spammers, etc with a label "dumb, naive and very likely to buy your next scam promotion item" b) unlawful lotteries in which you purchase worthless item and hope to win something. CC details, etc have the same treatment as above. c) illegal pyramid schemes where only the guys who actually set up the scheme win something. Pyramid schemes are illegal in virtually all Western countries and for those of you who religiously believe that you might get something once you move a slot up in your pyramid -- with the time you've wasted on such schemes, you would have probably worked in real-life job and earned enough cash to buy 10 PSPs, iPods, etc.
