But you said it was FREE ??

In today’s tough economy the term free has the ability to grab ones attention quite quickly.Wholesale buyers seem to be reaching their bottom lines sooner than expected these days. Any opportunity to extend that bottom line with free benefits is always well appreciated. Well it seems as though some are capitalizing on this attractive and flashy term although not with
good intentions.
With almost 5,000 qualified wholesale suppliers already connected within our network buyers can find quick success sourcing products. Buyers using our network will be pleasantly surprised, our supplier listings are real and not the usual ad-sense so often found on other sites. Buyers are encouraged to find and source form suppliers, there are no registration fees or annoying forms to fill out, simply find a supplier and start sourcing, that’s it!

Ok, you click through to take advantage of that attractive and flashy ‘FREE’ and WHAM! It’s gone, there is no free, nothing even close to free and instead the website asks you to pay. You click away mumbling beneath your breath about what a waste of time that was. Now start browsing again and repeat process.

‘FREE’ is cropping up all over the net and in truth it has really always been here. The current economy has just made this ruse sting a bit more than usual.

I guess we could all simply stop clicking on that attractive and flashy free link every time it pops up. We could avoid this joy to disappointment routine altogether.
