Why does the company do this? There are numerous reasons, all being for profit, for the company. By getting you to sign up for the “freebie” they are collecting your information, and more then likely, selling it to third party companies. Freebies usually get thousands of hits, and every time they collect new information, it means more money in their pockets.
If you have previously tried signing up for this “Pokemon Freebie” then you’ve probably noticed that the page is riddled with ads – Another way the company is making money, by their fake offering.
Sadly, this is one of those companies that does take advantage of people getting freebies – But thankfully, most freebies are legit. If you see “Free” offers from Mary’s Tailor Shop, stay clear of them.
