About as trustable as the mafia. In 99% of the cases (unless it is a sample sent by a reputable company) there is some hidden cost.

Very trustable, as long as you remember one thing: Nothing is free, there's a cost to everything. One way or another somebody is going to pay that cost.

You're not referring to one of the ads one the top of the forums pages are you? Hopefully, it's not the ipod thing. There's nothing that's free.

Never underestimate the bandwidth of a station wagon full of tapes hurtling down the highway.

You have to sign up for something to get the "Free" item. You may need to buy a month of AOL, or be an active user at eBay, or subscribe to a magazine (Those are a few from the ipod thing)
And then you need to get 5 other people to do the same. They get enough money from those offers to give out an ipod and still make a profit.

My mum won a Hootie and the Blowfish CD once for signing up for something. She hates Hootie and the Blowfish now.

Unless it comes from a reputable company, it's most likely it not always a scam. Best way to protect yourself is avoid them at all costs.
