stereo411.com
Bogus Website

This website cons people into giving up their e-mail address. I am the owner of Herbie's Audio Lab and have a Manufacturers Listing at Stereo411. Here is one of their scams, which appears on the manufacturers listing:

"Sign up for to receive information on the latest products, promotions and special offers from Herbie's Audio Lab, delivered directly to your inbox."

If you "sign up" for this, you're just giving your e-mail up for someone to sell it or for SPAM purposes--nothing whatsoever to do with Herbie's Audio Lab. The manufacturer does not even receive any indication that someone "signed up" for their newsletter--the person signing up, however, will begin receiving e-mails from a variety of audio-related businesses. This kind of activity is not only bogus, a scam, but is surely illegal. It's gathering personal information by misrepresentation.

I have been trying for years to have my profile (which is outdated) removed from Stereo411. I have never gotten a reply to e-mails. The phone number that Stereo411 lists is bogus--it goes to a business that has no knowledge of Stereo411.

I've rated this site at two, "may harm you or your computer," because of the certain likelihood that you will receive unsolicited e-mails if you enter your e-mail address on this site or sign up for anything on this website.
