Findings (What makes it fake?)
- While there’s no Spam popup after submit (an unrelated offer pops up and wants you to fill it out. The scammers get PAID when you do! They’re tricking you into making them money), there are a TON of very obviously out of place ads on the page. That’s their motivation. They’re getting paid when you click their ads.
- Speaking of Google Ads, it’s the same ad code (same advertiser) as other fake freebie sites use! It’s a Russian owned fake freebie site, along with several others (such as freesamplesmail . com) and InTur freebies scam we uncovered – to name a few
- Product image appears to be photoshopped
- No company info and phone number is disconnected
This is not a legit offer; it is spam. STEER CLEAR! To stay safe we highly recommend that you read our Big List of Fakes and learn how to protect yourself on every single freebie you sign up for. Read also: Getting Started with Gimmie.

You may not realize it, but scammers and spammers are notorious for posting fake offers. There are lots of reasons why people post fake freebies, but usually it is about money. They build up a website or Facebook fanpage and then sell it for profit. Or, they take your info submitted in their alleged freebie form, and sell it to Spammers.
