By Tuesday we were the top charting world band on the site and getting over 500 plays a day.
Check out this link http://www.msplinks.com/MDFodHRwOi8vd3d3Lm51bWJlcm9uZW11c2ljLmNvbS93aGlzcGVyc29mdGhlZHJhZ29uLw==
At this no point we began to research the site and found that if we wanted to keep up this stairway to stardom, that we would have to start paying a monthly charge after our free 30 day trial. Still at this point it seemed very tempting to jump on. We had never seen this much activity, fan gathering and plays. As musicians its our dream to hit levels like this and we all believe that some day this could happen. It is all about dreaming.
Additional research on numerous blogs from around the world dating back as far as 2006 showed numerous musicians had been involved and lost money (it used to be the first six months for 35 dollars). In addition many had pasted their emails they received which were identical in there wording to ours. At this pont it really seemed to us that we were probably involved in a questionable site.
We then received this email:
I just got your mail via n1m
and had to tell you that your music is really good and I like it. BTW I'm from Vladivostok, Russia and recently I have been selected to be our college radio station (over 5,000 listeners daily) music director... I'd love to give you some spins..
If you want, please forward your best mp3 song (192kbps) along with a Press kit or a short bio to this email address: email@example.com
I'm looking forward to receive your digital package.
P.S. Our website in the works and will be available online sonn

Defiantly evidence of computerized emailing demonstrating our belief. The end point here is if youre a musician please dont get caught up in on this web site. Surely dont use your hard earned money on this type of marketing. As independent musicians we all have a short supply of money to put out in to marketing as well as time to spend on it. And pass this on to anyone you know.
