These people offer a Free DELL computer.When you go through the registering process you have to order magazines , newspapers, etc...you go through two sets of pages Totalling 4 orders, as you start out, hey no big deal I could use some DVD's or Some Cd's.

Some of the items have monthly subcriptions of $70.00 Plus dollars (which you dont see unless you nagivate ther website to find out the cancellation process and its FREE for three days) As you go through the final page it offers you a direct way system which is $100.00 a mth for 15 mths ( total 1500.00) and Direct TV which is 40.00 a mth minimum for 12 mth contract that 480.00(Direct Tv is GREAT dont get me wrong we have it ) SO in total to get a free thousand dollar laptop (per Dell.com) its going to cost a minimum of 1900.00. You dont find this out until the last page until you have ordered 4 other products. Good luck cancelling them it takes up to 12hours.

Just say you wanted to do this, BUT you ALREADY have Direct TV OR Direct Way Theres another product that has a 400.00 set up fee! You are NOT eligable anyways ! After you gave those other companies your credit card and signed up for there yearly services! IF you get this in time (hopefully you do ) Dont go through with it! Dell is NOT AFFLIATED with this BUT doesn't that make DELL look bad ?

#1 Consumer Suggestion

More info for those unlikely to wander 'cross it.

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

I did a little investigation on my own. ProductTestPanel.com IS a subdivision of subscriberBASE internet advertising, but looking at the source code of the webpage gives you a little more than the name and address...how about the business phone numbers?

AdDrive, also a subdivision of subscriberBASE is located at
3830 Forest Drive, Suite 207
Columbia, SC 29209

phone is 803-790-8381
no answer? how about the fax? 202-478-0282

try the phone again and talk to
Ashley Lackore at ext. 237
Brad Defee at ext. 242
Nancy Margaret Jones at ext. 234

Dale City?

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

Hi it is Texino. We are getting a record number of fetal stem cells in The Dale City Area. We feel there is widespread instance of low sperm count endemic to that area but we do not know why.

Oh well, I saw this thing in my email for a laptop and I immediately knew it was some sort of nonsense.
Is this because I am smarter than you? I don't think so.

I do know this though. I might give you a laptop if you were working for me. Some company whom you don't work for and just spams an offer into your email, well they are not going to give you anything but a bad time.

There is just no percentage in playing fair in what they term cold call sales. They will trick you. The only way to play safe, is to only buy what you need on your terms when you have the money. Don't have the money? Save it. Get a part time job.
Do not use credit unless you can pay it off each month. Oddly, credit is for rich people.

If you do not go by these rules, you will lose. The only other way is to become a criminal and use other people's money.

You know Melanie means something, so why misspell it. I suppose you could be an African but I am not certain they can post here. Still it seems that they like to play with funny spellings. I have never met one so I can't say.

Whatever, just do not let this stuff keep happening or you will end up with no money.
