Scam?





LostOverThere
I saw this:http://www.freednr.com/.
And I cant help but if this is illegal or not?

Can anyone help me out here?
(Also, if I do win, which chances are slim, will I get me acount banned from FriHost if I use the domain?)
orno
i would wait a while before going ahead and trusting them with any kind of information...
need to have some kind of reputation first...

but yeah, my first guess would be SCAM

They are giving away one domain a week to the winner of the contest.
orno
or they are collecting a shitload of email addresses and selling them to spam-kings Rolling Eyes

Hmm... maybe it is scam, you should be careful!

it may not be a scam as you call it but definately it isn't much of a promise to begin with as you will be put inside a draw. the cost of purchasing domain doesn't amount to too much really.

I would say most definetly SCAM, why would they waste money on buying you a domain name for nothing?

The entire thing could be working if that contest would attract a lot of people, but most likely it's a scam, yes.

it even sounds like a scam, so i wouldnt have entered my website even if i was hard-up for a real domain.

I did a quick search on google it looks genuine though I have seen lots of adverts through forums and it looks like lots of people would be entering and considering it's a world wide compotition.

thats simple :
join their program with a new email account.
but make sure if you win, you own 100% the tld.

Yeah probable a scam.
But look at all of those Google ads.

Even it is real, it would take at least 1/1800 chance of grabing that domain, which is pretty slim.
lockwolf
After taking a look at them, they have a forum where you need at least 7 posts and 15 points to enter and make an additional 7 posts that week to be eligable. It looked like an image contest by the looks and they only limit it to 20 people
