    How Do They Get Away With This?
    On mainstream sites I see ads "Michelle Richardson from YOUR TOWN is your average American Citizen. Recently married, she lost her job as a secretary a few months back. Instead of hunting for jobs and going back to the corporate environment, she chose to take matters into her own hands. Michelle is one of many Americans working from home seeking out new business opportunities from the internet. Read his story in our feature article to the left."

    A few problems with that: The town referred to is 40+ miles from any corporate environment. A search for Michelle in our local listings reveals nothing. Then, I see the results at http://www.google.com/support/forum/...45fc0ee1&hl=en showing a Mike Richardson with the SAME story in a different part of the country. Also Jason Richardson at http://makemoneyathome-online.weebly.com/ and many many more at http://www.google.com/webhp?hl=en#hl...a58bd951301a20 This is such a SCAM!! Yet, it was run on http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/spo...cle6939787.ece and I have seen it on other big name sites. I find it amazing that internet sites can basically profit from ad income derived from such blatantly misleading advertising. In the non-internet world it is called fraud and being an accessory to fraud.

    Look at all the diet scams that have ads all over these same sites.

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    Unfortunately, the ones who pay the hidden price for all of this is us. This type of thing becomes the public's perception of "internet marketing".
