Hey Frame Tek guy


SGF, Supreme Grumble Framer
Jun 7, 2004
I think I saw that FrameTek reads the Grumble so I hope ya see this. If not, maybe someone can give them a call in the morning. We order their products through Larson or United, I don't know which so I don't have the number.

My girlfriend does online sweepstakes and giveaways for kicks. She showed me this link, which you have to be logged in to see so I'm also posting a screenshot... http://www.online-sweepstakes.com/forums/showthread.php?t=255213

It seems you've been lucky enough to be listed on an online sweeps board as being an easy freebee to get under the subject of "artwork framing". This happened about an hour ago, so when you start getting a deluge of requests for free samples from random people across the country that have no use for them ya know where it's coming from. This is the link on the sweepstakes page... http://www.frametek.com/HTML/samples.html

Good luck!

Also, they got some poor company offering free sample chips of wood moulding and mats.... http://www.pictureframes.com/html/customer_service.html#samples

Thanks for the heads up everybody. I'm getting my web guy on this immediatly.

What a scam!!!!
Wow! Did I ever learn a lot today. Scary!!! There are lots of web pages dedicated to helping folks find free stuff. A poor little company like mine could be inundated with requests for free samples (mine cost me $4.00 each - gladly given out to framers)

These folks just want anything that's free.

I did a google for "Free Samples" and was astounded! We are taking the word "Free" off of the site hoping that will help.

Pass it on!
It's amazing, ain't it?

My girlfriend is a responsible person. She'll go for free samples of things we can use and if we like it we'll usually buy more. Many of the people on those boards are the same. However, there are also a lot that just have to have one of everything that is free, no matter what. It's like they are junkies. They'll fly through your web form and not even realize what they are getting. They even have a program that attaches to their browser that fills in the information for them automatically whenever they come to a webform.
Latest update: For some reason, our web address was removed from the Sweepstakes pages. Thank you very much!

I had my computer/web guy change the "Free Samples" link from type to a graphic so that they can't Google "Free Samples" and find my web pages.

Phew!!!! Could have been a disaster.
