Shcok The Monkey - Banner Ad

Sun Aug 05, 2001 7:31 am

You know that banner ad at the top of the page
"shock the monkey and win $20" then when you shock it, you go the 'treelot' page, and you have to click on the tree as many imes in 5 min. Has anyone actually done it, the put in their details and got the money??

Someone must have because the ad has been there for a while!!

I did and never got the money. The money seems to be redeemed by way of discounts on products only available to those living in America. I then received junk e-mail like I have never received before, advertising services, subscriptions and discounts on products to which those outside the US do not have access. Eventually I unsubscribed from all the sites that hijacked my e-mail address.

It's sad that people would stoop so low to put that crap on a sponsor banner..We all know the outcome..

I'm embaressed to admit that one night I was so bored that I did it. Nothing ever came of it though. Johan, I think, needs to screen the ads.

I too did it and got something like $400 in those trea dollar things. When I went to redeem them it wanted all kinds of info about me and my likes. I ended it right there. All that leads to is junk mail and spam. no thanks

I shocked it last one night as well, and I backed out of submitting my info. All you get is spam.

I just shock the monkey and stop loading before my browser leaves A.NET - also a advice - open up an account like spam_me_you_morons@yahoo.com and use that mail for such sites

When submitting info, submit the email address of the site administrator from the spamsite as your own. He'll send spam to himself  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

It is the worst ad I have every used. and seen. It takes the longest to load of all the banner ads as it needs Java and wastes my time. Also scrolling down from the top is slower. I am not impresssed.

I think they should make a new banner.
Shock the creator of Shock the monkey and win $0

That would make me click.
