    I keep getting those spam messages that I have been awarded free airline tickets, free TVs, free laptops, free cameras, free IPods, etc. I don't want any of those things. I want free real estate or a free new car. Anything else is piddly to bother with. People have to realize that there is an angle involved with these so called "free" items. I got $50 in the mail to complete a survey just recently. The money is free and clear and is an incentive to complete the survey. But you have to consider that they want a personal profile of you. :doubt:
