Hi all,

If this is true, I don't blame them at all. I'm sure we've all notice offerer for free this or free that....personally I ignore them all b/c I don't believe them to be authentic offers.

I look at it this way, lets say I make widgets and a third party is offering my widgets for free,if you fill in this form or this offer. As the manufacturer of my widgets, I might be afraid that a potential bogus offer for my widgets, could sully the name of my firm and the reputation of my widgets.

Perhaps the best thing to do, is to make sure firms associated with bogus offers or a bad reputation not sell my widgets, because it may impact my widgets negatively.

Please use the link for the balance of the article.

Take care,

Jay
