Default FREE PC ? For real?

My friend sent me this message. Has anyone heard of this? Is this real?

Hey-

Check out this great site that is giving away totally FREE Desktop PCs!

I've joined and I think you should as well.

It's a completely legitimate offer, and this company has already given away $4 million in FREE stuff!

All you have to do is join, complete an online offer, and refer friends to do the same. That's it!

Here is my referral link. To help me get my Desktop PC, click this exact link to join, or copy and paste it into a browser:

You are banned, for real.

I wouldn't, this is the way people start getting bombarded with crap e-mails and phone calls. I bet you that when you complete an online offer, they save your contact info and sell it to other companies. That is how they can afford to give away so much. And I bet you another thing, they give away $4 million and make $8 million total!

It would be a major upgrade to get one of those free "crappy" computers.

This is true, but for most of use it is a step back. Maybe you should get one of those 'free' computers.
