    they ask users to complete surveys and buy products in order to claim their free ipad
    that's how they make money

    I was talking about the offer where the users send a sms to a phone number.

    I did one of them out of curiosity and all they did was send me a reply sms telling me to send another sms.

    So they bill the sms multiple time.

    That's sneaky.
