When you go to TigerDiect.com website (as I did today, 8-3-09) you get a pop up for a contest that asks for your e-mail, name and zip code:
contect link here:
note that in the link, there is no info about you opting into any e-mail, any expiration dates nor any rules link.
When you enter the info, you are taken to a landing page that says that the contest is well expired (expired Juny 11, 2009)
contest landing page here:
HOWEVER, they send you an e-mail that says to complete your entry you must click on a link.. No where in that e-mail does it say that you are signing up for any spam mail.
e-mail text as follows:
Subject: One More Step to Enter the Lenovo Desktop Bundle Daily Sweepstakes
Thank you for entering the Lenovo Desktop Bundle Sweepstakes. You could win a Free PC by Lenovo.
Click here (<-- that is a hyper link) to confirm your entry.
If you do not want to join, do nothing. You will be automatically removed.
Thinking that maybe they started a new contect I stupidly clicked there and instead was brought to a page that "confirmed my opt-in email"
EMAIL SUBSCRIPTION CONFIRMED!
but I did not want to sign up for any spam mail, was never told I was signing up for spam mail and am given no option on that page to unsubscribe from any spam mail...
Overall I find their practice deceitful, immoral and probably illegal (I also reported them tothe FTC)
