Thread Details

AOL is having a Giveaway [onlinepromo.com] for items seized from a Spammer, including gold bars, cash and a 2003 Hummer. There's also a chance to win in the $1000 daily giveaway.

**Register daily until 8/19/05. Thanks Kickstand**

Secret Probably should be in the freebies, but a free Hummer would be slick!

Hummer, like nothing else! Crazylaugh

Um,

A link from the AOL home page would be nice. Doesn't quite look legit to me.

Thanks...

Edit: Guess I did see it on some of the news sites, ah well, probably legit.

This is interesting, from the Official Rules:
Information collected from entrant is used only for the purpose of the prize drawing and to notify the winner and will not be re-used, sold or shared in any manner by America Online, Inc., (the Sponsor), Marden-Kane, Inc., or any third parties. Once the Sweepstakes has ended, all information supplied by entrants will be removed from the database.

Usually I avoid online sweepstakes because you're basically trading your contact info in return for your chance to win. In this case AOL is saying they will actually use your info ONLY for this contest, then throw it away. Amazing. Jawdrop

I think I'm gonna do a whois on the URL anyway before I give them any of my info.

There is indeed a link from www.aol.com. There is a tab on the front page that says SWEEPS go there and the above link is there....looks clean.

Good eye. That means it's legit enough for me. And as for being an AOL customer - it says no purchase necessary, and that anyone in the 48 states is eligible...so after skimming it I didn't see anything about customers.

SD is great.
