    I got it, gave them my PO box. If I get the case then ok, if I get some junk mail then that's what the trash can is for!

    I wish I were "highly respected" enough on androidforums to get cool scam pms like that... not gonna lie, I'm a little jealous...

    but no, in all seriousness, I bet it is legit. I could see that as being a decent promotional attempt by a case company. Would I still be cautious? Definitely. It also didn't help that I just looked up their "return" address and it looks to be a Wendys. But, the cases look decent enough.

    Looks like they're sending it to the people with the most posts. Good marketing strategy. They people most likely to talk about the thing where other people with evos hang...

    i got the PM... i responded..
    gave them my address...
    and not my real name.
    I used: Dan Dan330

    I dont see what harm they can do with that info. you can get my address from phone book.

    if I get it.. I will do a little review.

    PMs deleted and user banned. If they want to hand out free accessories for feedback there are better ways to do it than spamming PMs across the site asking people for their addresses - without warning the site staff.

    Sorry to those who were looking forward to one of these PMs or wanted the case. Should everyone revolt and taze me bro, I'll unban them and PM them a disclaimer I'll insist they include in future PMs.

    I'm not following this thread, should that be case (HA, case!!) someone PM me and link me here. Thanks!

    Seems reasonable. like they're trying to get free advertising on a site that is supported by pay ads. I think that's called spam. At least some members get a case out of it.

    If they were smart they should have given free cases to the mods first. Always tip your bartenders!

    FYI, I just got the case. Will post a review on Monday. Just wanted to note that a case was promised, then of was delivere via USPS with legit packaging. Like I said, I hope it's a small biz trying to make it. We could use more of that in this country.

    Yep they are legit. Great people.

    I got the case as well and it works great. I highly recommend the case, one of the best silicone cases I've used on any gadget.

    You can be too paranoid sometimes. I mean, they're not asking for credit card or bank info. Who the hell cares if you gave them your name / address?

    Even though I'm way protective of my info, this did not sound like a scam at all, especially since they were not asking for any credit card / bank info.

    A lot of us think we're a lot more important than we actually are.

    Too bad for you.

    You really need to understand how scams work and how to detect if something is a scam or not. This was no scam.

    Over a week later, and I still use it. That's a huge positive coming from me because before this case I never would have even considered a silicone case. It looks better than typical silicone cases.
