Free Samples

Dear Quality Health,
Thank you for that lovely spam email offering me a free sample of the new Honey nut cheerios cereal bar simply by clicking on the link in the email and connecting to your website. The picture looked delicious! Then when I clicked on the link, there was no free sample, just a survey. So I typed "free sample" into the search box at the top of the screen on your website. What a great list of "free samples" you have!
I found urine samples and stool samples and even biopsy samples. Just so you know, I have boys. I get enough urine and stool samples. And I'm not really interested in any biopsy samples. In fact after reading about all of the samples on your website, I'm no longer interested in that free Honey Nut Cheerios bar sample either.
Thanks Anyway,
Cookie

Oh Cookie---I'm always afraid of those 'free' offers we get. I usually don't even go into those sites for fear of a virus/worm. You should contact the company that makes Honey Nut Cheereos and let them know what is going on. I think it's General Mills.

I'm adding you to my followers list.
Hugs,
Betsy

I never intentially click on that stuff. Anything that is "free" usually isn't.

That's nuts!
A similat thing happened to me on two other ocassions, one said I won a 50 dollar walmart gift card, I did the survey, n nothing happened but - 50 more spams!
I've never won anything but lost time in emails...
Better luck next week!

Oh geez! That would turn me off from the Cheerios too.

They actually have all of that stuff on the search engine of their website?!?! Gross! After that I don't think I would be interested any longer either!
