    I bought something on EBay recently and a "POP-UP" sent me to a service called "FreeShipping.Com"? I couldn't figure out if there was a cost (hidden or otherwise). Has anyone use it and it worth the cost or effort? Thanks

    If it's true then how do they make money and stay in business? If it's not true then what other lies are they telling you?

    Run!

    No such thing as "free." Someone pays.

    Heh. That's actually not as sinister as I was anticipating. I thought they would be pulling one of those "the customer is the product" schemes where you'd be effectively exchanging the personal information of customers (as transaction data) for the service. The mined data could then be sold to targeted advertisers.

    Sometimes it pays not to click a button that looks too good.

    Perhaps one should avoid ebay at all costs; I know I have, and have never been the victim of a scam.

    At least they came on here and stated their case.

    Better then ignoring it like so many other companies do.

    If someone joins something like that it is their own fault.

    The axe forum could work or the Outdoor Gear, Survival Equipment & More forum.
