Lockerz is a new website where you can recieve prizes that you earn with a special currency, PTZ.

You earn PTZ for logging in Lockerz, for replying to stupid questions and inviting friends.

It doesn't look like a scam, many people posted images and videos of their prizes.

Anyone wants an invite? PM me with your email address.

SuperV, well, what about time limited e-mail? (I don't want to share an original e-mail with a new site).

It's forbidden, but the site is legit, I've seen many images/videos of guys receiving their prizes, etc, and the faq explain how they get money and stuff.

You can just PM me your email address and I'll invite you.

Signed. It looks like social net + some kind of questionnaire.

Sounds dubious to me. Sounds like "earn fake money for looking at adverts all day and convincing your friends to do the same". The invented currency is only redeemable with them... so they can give you yet more branding and marketing in return for looking at branding and marketing!

Clever ploy. I'd stay away personally.

Nuh, it's legit. Many people recieved things they bought with PTZ.

And, on facebook they posted this today

this means more PSPs are coming! :)

I need to invite more people so I can get in the Z-List. Anyone else wants an invite?

I'm wondering how a photo of cardboard boxes constitutes proof that they will be sent out to anyone, or that they even contain anything worthwhile, or who these people who have already received things are, and whether or not they are hired to stir up the hype, or why a company feels it necessary to prove their legitimacy by publishing photos of warehouses, or how long they will stay in business...

Basically, I've seen these types of schemes before and they're never as good as they seem, remember the "free ipod" craze? It's just new ways to make people look at marketing without thinking they're looking at marketing.

Unless I am over-cynical and everyone's gonna be getting free PSPs for watching YouTube while I sit here and complain ;)

The real point about this sites is that you don't lose anything if you try. I've seen many photos of stuff that arrived to other people, and I'm only 30 days away (4 pts per day) to get a PSP. In my opinion it's worth trying.

OK, let us know if you get your PSP :P

How long do you have to spend earning your 4 points a day? What do you actually do to earn them? Because I can still pay with my time...
