So, I’m sitting there doing a search for pearl necklaces on Google. Perhaps I should have qualified it with Jewelry! Check out the suggested search term from Google: Donkey Punch. Good thing they didn’t suggest the Atomic Donkey Punch!
A friend of mine at work was checking out Google Maps the other day. They have a new “Street View” feature that was getting the attention of everyone in the office. Soon, we all wanted to see if our house was on Google maps. This one lady pulled up her house on Google Maps and found something very disturbing: Her husbands car in the driveway with the car of her best friend on the street! What!?! Needless to say, there was a lot of splainin to do. Cool technology does not bode well for cheaters, but it’s really great for everyone else!
Google Maps 1: Cheaters 0!
I was so excited to hear that Monique had a question waiting for me at Fanbox. Yes, another day with a SPAM from Fanbox. Or as I like to call them SPAMBox. They’ll keep sending, I’ll keep posting. Good news on the Fanbox SPAM front though! Websites like Spam Huntress, Steve Riley, Techcrunch, and even my own blog show up on the first page of a Google search for the keyword fanbox or fanbox.com.
For newbies to the web, typing in the domain name into their default search page is fairly common. The more they can see that Fanbox is indeed a SPAM business, the sooner they can protect themselves from getting phished.
Fanbox.com SPAM! It’s what’s for dinner!!!
I really feel like I providing a great public service by posting about Fanbox SPAM. I’ve noticed that page views to my posts about Fanbox SPAM have gone up lately. Most likely because of their increased SPAMMING. And because I’m currently listed in the #1 spot on Google if you type in Fanbox SPAM.
It would be great to be listed at the #1 spot when someone just types in fanbox or fanbox.com. I’ve found that Internet newbies aren’t familiar with the URL bar. They actually type in the domain name in their Yahoo or Google search box. I’ve seen it happen first hand. These are the poor people who are most likely to get suckered into Fanbox’s SPAM scam. If you’d like to help protect poor, innocent newbies like my grandma, write a blog about Fanbox.com and link to this blog.
There is no need to tell Fanbox to stop. They will just ignore you and keep SPAMMING you and trying to phish your passwords. The more content there is about Fanbox being SPAM, the more the message will get out there. Communication with each other (non-spammers) is the way to fight SPAM.
