(Links disabled) They have been on the list for awhile,  see here, and are in the Quick Summary. Also, don't post actual links, just the product name and supersamples.com. The mods have been deleting these as fast as they get posted, because they run a referral program , which violates FW terms. I'm surprised the mods on duty approved this post, as this thread is supposed to be under moderation. It may have slipped by because it isn't a shill post with referral codes attached, still it its best to disable links in some way (such as removing the http:www string and adding a space or two somewhere to break it up, as I did, or you could just uncheck the "Yes, automatically link URLs in my message" box before posting) . These people should definitely be avoided, the only ones benefiting are them from their affiliates, and it has been confirmed that they are not affiliated with startsampling, which is legitimate.

Wineaux said:   We all want freebies, but sometimes the bad guys play on that desire. None of these supposed freebies will ever come. The entire purpose of these fake freebies is to harvest your personal data for spamming, or worse, purposes. Don't fall for them! If you find anymore, please add them to the Wiki and I'll update the list.

how to recognize which free stuff is fake

Free corkscrew from Facebook.com/WineMakingSociety is another scam Facebook page. They currently are offering a free wine holder.

Free Lavender Oil (with newsletter signup) at prettyfoofoosalonandspa. com: MumzOf2;18311938 said:
This is a fake offer. Their website was hacked. Sub-domain is in the URL (up/signup)
The salon is very legit but they have no idea of the free offer.
Picture is a stock photo
http://www.canstockphoto.com/images-photos/aromatic.html#file_vi...
Go to the home page, no link to newsletter to sign up



Free Sesakiss sesame seeds with honey bar from Lowell Foods; lowellfoods.com/ is FAKE. Hacked Website. Business is real, offer is not

Free dog dental care kit from k9pearlywhites.com, Hacked Website. Business is real, offer is not.

Free latex coated work gloves from motogpwerks.com/ is FAKE, business is real, offer is not.

Free Kebroak fire starter sample for charcoal from kebroak.com /firestarters is FAKE, site was hacked into.

Anna's Free Chocolate sample at secure.annaschocolates.com/try/ is FAKE. You can put nonsense in the form fields, including 00000 for a zip, and it goes through. No mention of freebie on home page, no link to it.

Extra Strength Sandy Wipes free sample from sandywipes.com is FAKE.

Thanks to MumzOf2 for providing much of the detective work.

ETA: There was supposed to be a link here, WYSIWYG editor was apparently malfunctioning and I didn't realize it didn't post. Here's the link: How to spot a possible fake scamming, spam harvesting, phishing website.

Where Is Baby's Belly Button? Through Simon & Schuster. It was supposed to be free. It's a fraud! They sent me a confirmation, about a month ago. I never received it. I heard it was cancelled by others.
