After all, we are the home of the Gimmie’s Big List of Fake Freebies to Avoid. We research all samples before we share to keep you safe online. You may not realize it, but scammers and spammers are notorious for posting fake offers. There are lots of reasons why people post fake freebies, but usually it is about money.

Some even deposit malicious code when you visit their website!
- The listed company giving away these samples is Rubicon 21 – A company *specializing in app development/marketing*. They just so happen to offer a poorly rated *Free Stuff By Mail App* In which you will get “Hand picked freebies, and samples every day“.
- When searching via google the address, and telephone number of said company distributing these *samples* 4283 Express Lane, Suite 139-063 Sarasota, Florida 34238 (phone) 1-941-538-6941 This looks to be a general address and the main telephone number given to MyUs.com (INTERNATIONAL package consolidation company) members.
- The physical address is linked quite a few negative listings claiming internet fraud, and to beware!
Example 1) cyclevendors.com/article/dealer-warning-do-not-take-orders-from.html
Example 2) complaintsboard.com/complaints/corporate-messengers-worldwide-middlesex-ub6-8xu-c263759.html
- When searching AromaSamples on Facebook, we found a foreign Facebook page, just made on October 13th 2014 with only 3 likes. Their listed website is https://aromasamples.ru/ and it is non working.
- L’Occitane via Facebook said they are not affiliated with the company giving away the sample, and directed me to their special offers page.They also thanked me for bringing the offer to their attention.
There are way too many clues pointing that this offer is bogus, and L’Occitane themselves confirmed they are not affiliated with the offer. Steer clear of this one!
