    This is a recent update to an FTC action regarding senders of SMS advertisements of email submit offers.
    http://www.ftc.gov/opa/2013/07/revenuepath.shtm

    It seems the action was brought on because of the SMS messages, but a lot of detail has been announced regarding the email submit offers themselves.

    So I'm wondering what others think about this... Should we stay away from email submits as email marketers??

    It was brought to action because of the messages that were sent. Truth in Advertising. You can send SMS, as long as they're fully opted in and the offers are compliant.

    These "scammers" are sending offers that look like 1 thing, but then turn out to be something else or consumers are not receiving their gift cards, prizes, etc.
