Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

FreeGiftWorld.com (parent company Modern Consumer) will entice you by offering attractive items for free for filling out 'a few simple questions'. You will register by entering your email, address, and other information. You will go through around 20 'offers' in a survey type form.

Afterwards -- this is where it gets good) -- you MUST subscribe to 3 'offers' on the first page, 3 'offers' on the second page, and 2 'offers' on the last page.

Offers from Discover, ColumbiaHouse, Netflix, several piles of natural suppliment crap and the biggest screw:

Nexiderm -- after paying for shipping they automatically charge your CC around 95$ enrolling you in there monthly program (giving you about 2 days to return UNUSED product and long rude service calls)

I call this the 'small print' WHICH is NEVER mentioned anytime or anywhere during your FREE item signup.

Upon completion of all the scams, you get NO confirmation, you get another popup offering a FREE Ipod - imagine that.

I did get an email from hd@anysleep.net (Owned by the dreaded BonusBonez.com) - The email itself was an image that linked to http://www.unlimitedfreegifts.com offering a free IPOD.

This image of an email contains several bogus links which is supposed to confirm your zip code. Wrong.

After major annoyances I've done some research and must tell my story until I get my $250 gift card from Home Depot.

As with the other posters, Freegiftworld eventually says you never signed up in the first place.

Modern Consumer NOT Associated with FreeGiftWorld

AUTHOR: Nicole - (U.S.A.)

Modern Consumer is NOT affiliated with FreeGiftWorld. AlliedPlus owns FreeGiftWorld and they used to be a client of Modern Consumer. The information on WhoIs was temporary and incorrect. It has since been corrected. If you contact Modern Consumer they'll just give you the phone number for Allied Plus or forward your info to AlliedPlus.

PLEASE do not contact Modern Consumer for any concerns you have with FreeGiftWorld.com

Allied Plus can be contacted at 800-794-9023, or at FreeGiftWorld.com, 1894 Highway 50E, Suite #4, PMB 472, Carson City, NV 89701. You can also visit www.offerup.com/services for info on your gift. If you call the number, you'll probably get voicemail because they are a small company without a fully dedicated customer service staff, but they do respond to messages quickly during business hours.

#2 Consumer Comment

Not a scam!!!

AUTHOR: Ace - (U.S.A.)

Freegiftworld is not a scam because I recieved my xbox on February 28th, 2005 and signed up for 2 offers on November 23rd, 2004 and the 3rd offer on December 29th, 2004. The website has not sent me any spam which I was really glad about. However, nexiderm offer did charge me for not returning the product. Tried to call them for 4 days and never got through. They didn't even send me any more cream.
