ANd I did post in my blog on there all the things that I learned. The whois search, the personal info… Those are the biggies for me.
I didn’t know about whois searches. I actually have a domain name that I purchased. I ended up not using it. But I did the search on my domain… sure enough, my name work address phone number and email address were all there. I also searched for myspace, just as a point of reference. They aren’t hiding either, and they don’t ask for anything that personal.
I think giving a SSN to these folks would be like giving it to someone who calls your house with an unlisted number and giving them the same info. i wouldn’t do it.
I signed up first and asked questions later because at first it didn’t feel like a MLM or scam… just social networking. But as I got more “friends” and got more comments and read more blogs… it’s all mostly about how to get rich quick.
THAT’s when I started to wonder…. then came here.
I never thought that this could be an MLM or anything close. I am used to the product peddling types, but this is really quite the set up. An internet based scam for an internet based world, huh?
I’m still on there and sending messages to my friends warning them to proceed with caution and telling them what I NOW see.
I’ve only been on for like two days and spent nothing and gave no info, but I already feel duped… mainly because when it still sounded good, I emailed it to my friends.
