    ^That's not a bad idea if anyone wants to risk $20 on a test...even if it is an obvious looking scam.

    The thing is though that they have provided contact details...well, a phone number anyway. But then again, it might not be real. I'd stay far away from it. I want McAfee to test it and see what they say...

    From what I can tell it is like those "Get a free PC/Laptop/IPod/etc." sites. You need to fill-out surveys, questionnaires give out your personal information AND make purchases from their affiliated vendors.

    Heres a article about these types of sites: http://blogs.pcworld.com/staffblog/archives/003893.html

    I'm sure the site is as legitimate as www.waycheap360.com and www.1cheapps3.com - although they probably found just enough suckers to make the scam worthwhile [​IMG]
