Thinking how harmful could “Get Free Bathroom Samples” be? I followed that one.

Here is what I found:

By entering your email address and clicking “submit”, you agree to receive emails from Lifescript and/or trusted third parties containing promotions and other special offers and that Lifescript may provide your email address and corresponding information to such parties. If you do not wish to continue receiving such emails, you may unsubscribe at any time.

* No purchase necessary. In order to qualify for the Free Samples you must complete the Lifescript Advantage registration page providing your name, address, gender, date of birth and email address and then review a series of offers. Upon completion of the review of the offers, you will have the opportunity to choose from a selection of free samples. You may choose as many as you like. When you “click to redeem” a free sample, you will be directed to a third-party website and may be requested to provide information or take other actions (for example, it may request that you “Like” a Facebook page)….

(emphasis added)

The only upside is that they don’t ask for your bank account and routing information. 😉

Avoid this scam and go to Mastering Clojure Data Analysis at Packt Publishing. There is no TOC or sample chapters available at this time but it is a worthy topic.

Who would you report such a scam to? Suggestions?
