I've been Number one in a couple of categories for a couple of years. What does that tell you? Ever heard of me? Terry Loder. But when they have the mysterious looking girls say things like I listen to ----------- every day, when are you going to make a video or I just discovered your other song and now I can't get enough of it, I cringe. Just ask them what part of the song is their favorite or if they would like to buy a Tee shirt or anything connected to their "favorite" song and you'll get nothing. It's a well conceived con. I love to watch stings and cons on TV. So, I chuckle and send responses just to make someone at the other end in Moscow or say "uh oh. Another one figured out the con. I've never had a single follow up from a fan, including an answer to my response when they send their "message" nor has anyone ever purchased music when they ask where to go. Come on. If you send Number One Music a nickel, you will never get that much back from them. Anybody out there ever get a real reward for your songs?
Final Note: When you stop your activity, watch how they send you email suggestions with increasing frequency. (Like every day)
