In summary: American media and how it shapes our view of the world. In the movie, the media is controlled by a small group of people who use it to their advantage. The media is in the business of selling newspapers, so they report what is popular, which is usually what the advertisers want to hear.

These things usually pay out somewhere between fractions of pence and several pence per advertisement viewed. Either way, reading that number of emails would probably drive you to suicide before you got anywhere near a reward.

What do you guys think? A scam? or a genuine offer?

Purchasing our eBook package for just $5.00 will grant access to your account immediately so you can start receiving our rewarding e-mails! After reading each e-mail sent to you, click the activation link which will then deposit credits into your account right away. There's nothing to buy from our sponsors! Our e-mails are worth whole numbers so you can earn credits much faster than any other program out there!

It appears to me that there are several possibilities. First, unless you sponsor other people it may take an eternity to get enough credits to receive said laptop. And/or, in order to continued receiving emails that add credits to your account, you will find that you have to pay monthly fees that will cost you more than the LT is worth. Or, there is no way that you will ever receive a laptop no matter what you do.

If its too good to be true then that's exactly what it is. :frown:

Yes, in order to get a bread toaster for free I need to save up 10,000 points.. where every box of tea has 4 points on it. So I need to use 2500 boxes, one box contains 20 bags.. that is 50,000 cups of tea! :eek:

Yeah, but most people are thoroughly detached from both.

Person 1: 'Guess why Monique has been on the toilet all day.'
Person 2: 'I don't know. Why?'
Person 1: 'She has just finished her 50,000th cup of tea this week.'
Person 2: 'Why so much tea?'
Person 1: 'She wanted a free bread toaster.'

You can see the conversation potential. :wink:
