I never got my free Pirates of the Caribbean DVD!

Does anyone have any contact info for the Freebiz scam? They actually did send me free subscriptions but I want the DVD. If enough people start raising hell they'll may send out the discs.

For numerous free DVD offers from Freebiz, no one in this forum seems to be in the first 150 ever.

I'm sure we aren't the first forum/people on the internet to see the offers and that's why I don't even bother trying.

HA! you got spammed. deal with it. Read the fine print..

IF YOU QUALIFY. you didn't qualify for the dvd. Infact, they don't even tell you what it takes to qualify to get the dvd.

And what, exactly, was the "scam"?

(Gotta love people who cry "scam" when the terms, conditions and results aren't to their liking.)

Freebizmag rocks. Don't knock on them. I've gotten many many free magazines from them. Most of these free dvd offers are posted on fatwallet, and even then, by the time they're posted, its most likely gone.

Shouldn't this be in the store forum?

Or, as the jerk in me types: Nice Bargain

Has one person here ever gotten a t-shirt or dvd? Just curious. I've happily gotten plenty of mags, but never anything else.

Although that is a really small number I still think someone in this forum would have scored something by now if it was truly legit. We are some of the most active surfers on the net...

Wouldn't it have to be a store first to be complained about in the store forum?

As this is only one forum vs the entire world, I am not suprised that nobody got one.

We are low in the food chain. Usually we get run off's of Fatwallet, but even by the time we get to pick apart the spoils it is already to late. The chain of information passing on these deals go through so many forums that I'm not surprised that 150 would have been claimed within the first few seconds of it being discovered. Not to mention if they were really 150 as you had to qualify with unknown qualifications

I didn't say I was surprised, and I realize there are other forums. The point was that there have been several of these offers and many of this forum's users check fat wallet too. That is why I referred to us as active surfers. Statistically speaking, someone should have at least received one of these by now...
