Do you guys know about offers to be testers for products, sometimes expensive ones (such as laptops)? Can you really be a tester for these expensive products and get to keep it when done testing? How can one avoid being scammed out of personal info like phone numbers and home address?
Always read the fine print. Make true the doctrine that if something looks too good to be true - it probably is.
I have never participated in any of these "opportunities" but I know that they do say that participation is required. This participation leads to you spending money for that opportunity. Whether you keep the laptop or not I do not know but would advise anyone to stay clear of "too good" opportunities.
I would be very wary, there are opportunities out there, but generally a company will not just hand a trial laptop to anyone, since there is no guarantee it will be returned, or even reviewed!
I had a friend participate in one of these before. Or attempted to do so. It was a hoax. It was a third party gathering information to send more e-mails to make you buy other products. Every time she opted out, she was presented with another gadget to buy costing hundreds of dollars. She never made it through the maze to get the free product if there actually was one.

I participated a couple years ago with a young adult novel, but didn't have the time last year. This year, I have 35,000 words written already, and a bunch of character studies. I'm thinking my 35,000 needs revising so...
