Donations and Subscriptions
Just because a website is a religious one does not mean you should let your guard down. Beware of scams and fraudulent websites that are only phishing for your personal information. As previously mentioned, magazine freebies often involve a subscription offer, so be sure to cancel. Some music download sites may be the same.
Because many of the websites and organizations spend their own funds to produce, buy and mail the freebies out, they may ask for a donation. Use a secure form of payment, like PayPal, or mail them a check, if you wish to donate. Remember that a donation is optional. Consider donating to groups from whom you frequently receive freebies.
