Use Caution When Signing up for Free Stuff
As with any free stuff website, use it with caution. Be sure your antivirus software is working correctly before trying to download anything from a website, and do not download from a website you do not trust. Keep in mind the old rule of thumb: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. This will keep you from getting junk email, junk postal mail, phone calls, and possible identity theft when you get free Christmas stuff online.
