BEWARE! Free Shea Hand Cream FAKE Free Sample!

First seen on freebie sites starting in October 2019, this free sample is a scam. All you will get from it is a lot of Spam, and they’re tricking you into getting them PAID!
Why do so many freebie sites post these as “real”? Firstly, this one was not obviously fake until it was shared as real many times. Then, they changed and added the spam popup which is a telltale sign of a fraud.

Findings (What makes it fake?)
- Spam popup after submit (an unrelated offer pops up and wants you to fill it out. The scammers get PAID when you do! They’re tricking you into making them money.
- Product info makes no sense! Here’s the write up on the hands and feet cream page: Our hands and feet are our daily tools grope through life and contribute. Therefore, the skin is often dry, brittle and cracked and needs a special natural care. In the field of hand and foot care, we offer you the following products.
- The poorly written or poorly translated product info is also found in a google search on this (now deleted) page which was on this German website: www.natural-cosmetics.de. Incidentally, that website now has a popup which sells surgical face masks. Of course, that’s totally unrelated to beauty and cosmetics and likely also a spam site.
- Product image is photoshopped (not real)
- Company info from contact page is a random office building that no such company is in.
