“Looks like a scam”

Written on: 31/08/2011 by jason_dude (1 review written)

Looks pretty much like a scam. When you accept your invitation, you've confirmed an active email address. If you then provide your *email login info* (!!!) it will grab all of your contacts and attempt to do the same to them. If you attempt to skip inviting friends, you get stuck. I invited a dummy email address, and you still get stuck. Nothing on the web page, and it looks like their email newsletter has been "coming soon" for 6 months or more.

Be aware that if you confirm your email address, you've likely provided a high quality email address to spammers, and if you don't confirm you're just like any other harvested email address: they'll spam it anyway.

If you enter your email login info to them, you should change your password *immediately*, it is most likely now in "the wrong hands" and there's no telling what could happen.

Perhaps they're legit, but I seriously doubt it. I've unsubscribed, so I don't expect any more email from DealWhale themselves, but don't have any such hopes from whoever they'll probably sell my address to.
