First off, I’m not saying this program is a scam. “Studies” have shown that people do get their iPods. What I am presenting here are the hidden costs involved, which is how they make over $250+ to pay for your iPod.

The most obvious issue is spam, although people do not always realize this.

Please note that the email address you enter on will receive spam as a result. It’s easy to deal with, however – make sure you enter a “junk mail” address, one that you use to receive spam with.

I will update this with a report of the spam I receive – keep going down to see it.
