    2013 BMW M5 Giveaway
    https://www.facebook.com/events/212513965596637/?hc_location=stream



    Some of you may have seen this already..
    It looks like more than 50 people in MY FRIENDSLIST are retarded enough to believe such crap, so i can't imagine the impact world wide.

    Now my questions: it's NOT a page, it's an event..how can you make money out of this?

    You have to "register', they ask for your name, email, and comments.
    But now my question, what can they possible do with this info to put it into value?
    Any estimations?
    Thanks!

    i'm assuming a combination of:
    1- having clients fill in CPA offers
    2- having clients fill in personal data to sell to other companies

    They make money for the advertiser who gets free leads from a network who terminates their affiliate for running a fake contest on a tumblr blog.
