    Glad you believe me Kryptenx. BTW, I found this post I made when I got the ipod last year http://www.exceem.co.uk/forums/showthread.php?t=3159.

    Anyway, no more talking about these sites then just incase I annoy anyone else here.

    EDIT: They only rely on referrals as the advertisors pay moeny for each person to sign up. Its not a pyramid scheme. Legit companies such as LoveFilm, ScreenSelect, etc pay money for the free trials because most people will continue their DVD rentals...

    Your referral link is at the end of that link. You also hid the link into a clicky thing. I don't trust it for those reasons.

    A fraudulent moneymaking scheme in which people are recruited to make payments to others above them in a hierarchy while expecting to receive payments from people recruited below them. Eventually the number of new recruits fails to sustain the payment structure, and the scheme collapses with most people losing the money they paid in.
    Obviously with the internet the definition is a little different now, but you get the point. Each user is relying on getting 10 people to signup under them. Eventually there are no more users left to signup and 98% of the people get screwed.

    Example of the tiers of people required:
    1
    10
    100
    1,000
    10,000
    100,000
    1,000,000
    10,000,000
    100,000,000
    1,000,000,000
    10,000,000,000 --> But wait! There aren't 10 billion people in the world, let alone with internet access. Kind of looks like a pyramid to me doesn't it?

    Remember kids: If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
    For real, I'm really tired of these referral crap most of people will end up with nothing but spam in their emails.
