    is this another way to trick people into downloading parasites?

    if so, i think it's disgusting to use our troops this way!

    They are affiliated with this:

    Not sure if it's legit. It 'seems' to be, but I have never heard of either of these before...

    Buyersport private labels out it's shopping portal and software to charitable organizations. There are a few they do this for. You can see the different ones I've found thus far at http://www.affiliatefairplay.com/merchant_list.html They have (powered by Buyersport) beside the site link. Buyersport has always included charities as part of their business model with their shopping portal.

    Zeus,

    The Arthritis Foundation was actually the first one I stumbled across way back and how I realized Buyersport was doing this. I had gone to the Arthritis Foundation web site looking up something related to Arthritis and found that.

    BTW, TopRebates also does this cobranded/private label thing. In fact, I just found 2 more sites powered by TopRebates I need to add to that list.

    CashBackBuddy promotes their platform to charities also. Although it's not completely clear to me how that works for the information on their site. It looks like it requires the organizations members joining CashBackBuddy and registering their credit cards. :eeks:

    Looks like LS merchants like Overstock are up to their eyeballs in a chain of BHO's while saying their squeeky clean. Haiko ended the Morpheus flame wars here by declaring them exorcised after their goons manhandled some ABWers. Now they syndicate (pimp out) their merchants, and their BHO, to 3rd dubeous charity/rebate/point fronts paying sleezeballs for drive-by and hidden bundle installs.
