I see a lot of "a friend from a board" or "somone my uncle's dog knows" or whatever.
Yet I see way more "hey guys, come to my link!" than actual people saying it came in. at them making only $7 per AOL referal plus my combing of their terms.. I find it to be a misleading offer. Numbers don't add up, and the terms prove that you have zero recourse.
I think there is a lot of baiting going on, sites like this have affiliates who pretend to be plain regular joes getting this stuff so they can stand to make a couple of bucks refering people. That is my experience. My board also has a thread on this.. 2 months later.. no one has yet to get an IPOD. Had at least 19 people complete the offer as illustrated(yet the find print petty much makes it impossible).
