Freebie hunters, take note of a possible fake deal from The Coolmind offering free 100% Cotton Women’s T-Shirts. Unfortunately it looks like the Facebook page is old/unpopular, and the linked store is no longer working. I also came across the exact shirt image on AliExpress and a few other similar stores which is not a good sign. The best case scenario is that this is a merchant who tried to get rid of some inventory, but I wouldn’t count on this one arriving for anyone who signs up.
Why I think this one is fake:
- The company has an inactive Facebook page which has less than a handful of likes.
- The store link isn’t working.
- The picture of the shirt they use has been taken off the internet from places like AliExpress etc.
- You can’t be 100% sure this is fake or expired but it should make you fake radar go off when you see these sort of forms because these has been a huge rush of fake Google Form and Microsoft Office form freebies going around in 2019 and 2020 and it seems there are more and more everyday.
As usual with fake freebies, avoid them! If you see them on other websites, do not sign up. Signing up with these kinds of sites can mean you get spam mail, spam emails, sketchy links from fake PayPal/Amazon/other websites, and worst case scenario – can fall victim to identity theft. Don’t trust links that ask for your password or any personal information, ever. Thank you for reading my fake freebie rant. You can see other fake alerts or freebie updates here as well.
