4. What are some signs of scam freebie offers?For me the biggest sign of a scam offer is site design. If the site design looks very simple and basic, almost like it was a template and somebody filled in the blanks, that is a major vote of no confidence. The second big indicator is advertising next to the freebie offer. Legitimate freebies are given away usually because they want you as a future customer or subscriber. Scammer sites are just trying to make a quick buck, hoping you’ll click on one of their ads. Finally, I think an “about page” and contact information are extremely important. If they want your information, and will not disclose their own… run for the hills. If you are pro-freebie hunter, you can always check the domain name registration using a service like whois. If they just registered the domain name for the site the day before, hit the back button on your browser.
