I have been browsing Ebay for various electronis lately (most of them I dont need/can't afford). Anyways, I always see a bunch of auctions selling information on how to get those products for free. Here's the latest example I've seen: [url]http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=318&item=2903678679[/url] Anyways, has anybody here ever actually won one of these auctions, and was it just a bunch of BS, or did you actually get something for free????

What was the question again?

It is a scam. They send you a link to a site of manufacturers, and you must act as a legitimate business and try to get free samples. First thing I got was an e-mail stating that I had been turned into the FCC for investigation. Apparently it is illegal to request free samples if you do not own a legitimate business. Luckily I do. Anyway, most will only give free "display" samples with a minimum order. I have yet to get anything for *FREE*.

Think about it, if they could actually get a $5,000 TV for free, don't you think they would sell it instead of the link for you to get it for free?
