i think it would be really nice if when we went to a website where you have to give your cell phone number if it could say that we would have to pay.  some of those things where its like take an IQ test and enter your cell number in actually costs like 9.99 a month and i cant spend my money on that to get $1 on FC. it would really helpful! :thumbsup:

They really won't charge you if you do that??? 
My cell got charged for something stupid like that also, but it was through some dumb facebook quiz- i didn't even get the fusioncash dollar!!! but yeah, i JUST took an iq test and it wanted to text the answer and it said it would actually cost up to 19.99/mo. not cool at all- i didn't do it, but yeah if i hadn't known about the previous charge i may not have realized this scam.

why are you even putting in your number on those pages???
that is NOT required to complete the offer and receive credit.  next time, click on "no thanks/skip"
when you get to the final offers pages (bronze,silver,gold) open 2-3 offers on those pages....that's it - click open, let load completely, click out. they are just tracking that people are looking at the suggested offers. everything between your email/name/address AND the final offers pages are just for you to look at = click "skip" OR "no thanks"

NEVER enter your cell phone number. Always going to be $9.99 per month.

It always says at the very bottom in tiny print or on the terms/conditions page of the offer. Either $9.99 per month OR 99cents per message sent/received. Don't put your cell number in those quiz, ringtone, etc. offers unless you expect to pay for it.

NEVER give personal information such as this without knowing the details. If they try to hide the details, They probably don't want you to see them!

i just dont ever do the one that require a #. i thought about getting the pin and then just cancelling but i didnt want to risk it. i have no money to pay for that. I would advise everyone else to do the same. the only ones i can really do are ones that credit like $0.50 to maybe $2.50.... not great but ive been credited almost ten bucks from those so im not complaining. :)
