DON’T FALL FOR FREE LAPTOP OFFER
DON’T FALL FOR FREE LAPTOP OFFER
UPDATE AS OF JULY 2nd AT END OF THIS BLOG
There are so many legit earning sites on the web but for everyone legit one, there are probably double that in scams. The latest offer I’ve have seen is where you take part in a case study and you get a free laptop. My suggestion is DON’T FALL FOR FREE LAPTOP OFFER that is going around on Facebook until you study the requirements and know what is required of you.
This is what some people on Facebook are post on their walls:
“What if I told you that you could be part of a case study that would give you a FREE LAPTOP when it’s finished? Do you have a Gmail that’s over 2 years old and unlimited, stable WIFI? I can refer you!”
Sure it sounds like a great way to get a free laptop but you have to look deeper, WAY DEEPER into it because there are certain requirements for the program. This is a run down of the qualifications of this case study.
The purpose of our studies is to test public interest in different styles of ad concepts. We do this by utilizing Google Ads, and tracking the responses of what draws the public’s attention to click on an ad.
The qualifications are listed below to be able to participate …
If you qualify and complete the study till the end, the laptop we send is yours to keep!
This study runs 4 – 6 months. (sometimes less)
Must be 18+
Must live in the USA
Must have reliable, stable unlimited internet connection
Must have stable living conditions (not moving in the next 6 months)
Must have active Gmail account for over 2 years
Must provide valid phone number & address (these will be verified)
Do you meet these qualifications?
Now here is the rest of this fabulous case study:
Here’s how it works.. We will run an ad through your google ads section. We do this by sending you out a laptop that will need plugged up An turned on for the entire study! We would ask for your gmail log in info so we can access this section. We do not access anything else but the ad section on your google account. Once again. The laptop that we send must be plugged up and left on the entire time we do the case study. Once you receive the laptop we will go over how to do everything. Once the study is completed…YOU KEEP THE LAP TOP, OUR WAY OF SAYING THANK YOU! The following is a must.. Must provide Gmail login information (gmail address & password) Must provide copy of State Issued ID or Driver License with your current mailing address. (If address does not match must provide copy of current internet bill with address clearly shown where service is) If internet is not in your name we will need the contact information (name & phone number) for the person whose name the service is in. We are sending expensive equipment, this is to verify your address. Must be available or have someone available to check the laptop during the day should we lose connection. Note, you may not use the laptop for personal use until the case study is completed! Do you agree to these terms?
If you were to accept the terms, they will have not only have your address, phone number and DRIVER’S LICENSE but also PASSWORD to your email!
I’m not saying they will, but by giving anyone personal information they can access every device connected to your home internet and everything that you do on it including, but not limited to, all of your passwords, bank account, and credit card info. And by agreeing to let them in you are letting them legally gain this access. Through it your computer can also be used as an access point for illegal activity (hence the 24/7 access requirement)
So a free product sounds super great but it’s definitely not worth the possibility of losing your identity and your life savings. You have to make sure you read any fine print and ask questions on every internet earning offer. Everyone can make their own decisions when offers such as this get spread over the internet, but you can’t jump into things without looking at the whole picture. My suggestion to everyone is to be very careful when checking out sites, not just this one, that sound too good to be true. You need to do your homework, just think what someone could do if they have your driver’s license, social security number, credit card numbers, address and bank account info.
These are my own opinions and in no way am I saying not to accept an offer like this or any others, I am only letting readers know to be very careful before signing up to any offer they may see on the internet. As an FB friend just mentioned, when someone has your email and password, they can change your password on any site, bank, etc. BE CAREFUL!!
