Don't leave yet, we want your money

ave you recently looked into a job application, maybe a loan or just following a link on the internet to get more information ?

If you have you may have run into the annoying pop-up below:

Are you sure you want to navigate away from this page?

Your dream job is ONE STEP AWAY!

Register to view the latest job openings in your area. Press CANCEL to continue.

Press OK to continue, or Cancel to stay on the current page.

It's like someone there has come up with a way to keep you from leaving their page. Most of the time the site is possibly for a job or perhaps a loan or a school.

Having spent time recently on what I thought was a job application turned into a front for a school. Aside from the pop-up, I received three emails and two voicemails saying I had not completed the information.

How is that for someone watching what you do and where you go on the internet.

Imagine walking out of a market or retail store and a clerk steps in front of you and says, "sure you want to leave, you did not buy anything?"

The part that can be bothersome is when you get an email saying you were on our website but did not finish your purchase, application, form.

That can bother anyone.

I would hate to have a call from a store I was in today and have someone say you wandered the aisles but did not buy anything.
