    What do you think about getting people to sign up to those ringtone offers? I've found a way to get a lot of people to sign up to them and I told someone but they think what I'm doing is illegal because they don't know they are being subscribed to it... What should I do? Stop doing it? Do you think I am scamming them? Is it legal? Shall I stop doing it?

    Thanks

    I might share the method if I actually get some good responses, it involves e-whoring.

    I'm worried about the method, it's very unethical as they don't know what they are getting subscribed to.

    Obviously, you're being deceitful to those signing up but ultimately, I think the largest responsibility falls on the person subscribing and the service they're subscribing to. You're the middleman, enticing someone to subscribe by not being completely truthful but... deceit is a large part of what many do to get their offers completed. If you're not willing to deceive people, you ought to try something a little more "white bread."

    I guess a few of the "gut checks" for you are; Do you sleep OK? Are you looking over your shoulder? Do you feel guilty? It all boils down to your own personal comfort level with what you're doing.

    So, my answer is... if your goal is to earn money and you're doing that, then good for you. If you're worried or guilty or feel dirty, then do something else. It's shady but not the kind of thing that'll have the cops busting down your door.

    Hi


    I have an idea, on your website where people CLICK to go to the Registration Form page, OR at the Registration Form Page, you can type some words in a very small font / or light gray color text (#DDDDDD) on a white background saying
    "You will be auto registered with BLAH Ring Tone services...."

    This way you will feel a little better !
    This is a VERY LEGAL marketing technique and used by many many big companies. You can see at many advertisements on TV and on Newspapers, posters so on, saying some price like this

    Buy Now Only for $99.99
