    Does anyone here know anyone who has done one of these programs?

    I was thinking about looking into one of these the other day while in my shitty 91 honda "Man even a friggin Geo with a red bull can roof attachment would be better than this"

    Cut forward to today an I see an ad flash away after a refresh on thedailyplate.com mentioning just such a program so I google it and see some terms that seem quite acceptable to me. You do however have to pay 30 bucks just to view the offers on freecarindex.com and I'm wondering if it's even worth it

    I have no personal experience at all with this sort of thing, but it sounds like it wouldn't be worth it at all (and that $30 merely to view listings sounds like a complete scam).

    I imagine that you would be required to drive X number of miles every day in certain "high traffic" areas of town. Plus, they would more than likely use GPS to monitor your progress while "working" for them. I can't see it being anything other than a big, ostentatious headache.

    Im with mj, Don't even touch it. It's Scamatron!!
    Especially If they need your credit card number accept your $30.

    Would Start With Trust -- Start With BBB first , even though sometimes it's hard to get info on smaller independant buisnesses

    ^The caveats is that you have lame ads all over on "your" car and you give the car back after 5 years, you pay for gas, insurance and maintenance. Haven't you seen a car or two with really lame advertising all over it or even some kind of product prop on the top? I use to see a geo with a huge red bull can on the top in woburn ma all the time.

    It might be less risky to look up state repo auctions.
