Beware of Offers from FreedomPop
I decided to click through. The page has a big pop-up that seemed to echo the email and assure me that it was a free offer.
Check this out, it’s not free. There is still a charge for the router. You know what, that’s fair. If they aren’t charging for the service it only makes sense that I pay the upfront cost for the equipment.
That’s not all though. I see the catch now. The free service, is only for the first month. There is a monthly charge of $18.99 if not canceled. I am sure glad I looked closer, else I would have been pulled in by the enticing messaging.
This type of marketing is despicable and grossly misleading. My guess is that they want people to sign up and forget or glace over the fee when they examine their credit card bill, or even worse, just pay it without looking. I know they are a young company, but that does not excuse this blatant bait and switch from seeing the light of day. Shame on you FreedomPop. SHAME. ON. YOU!
