I was going through my Google Alerts and found a very odd Craigslist ad:
The ad was from http://seattle.craigslist.org/see/dmg/5508562124.html (still active after approximately 16 hours, at this writing) and starts out:
Are you an Active FB user? Do you also have a home computer/internet connection? If so, then you most likely qualify to make $100.00 from my company for less than 20 minutes of your time.
There’s an URL in it connected to the domain rentfb.com . According to Whois.SC, it was registered in mid-February, and a search for “rentfb.com” on Google doesn’t return much aside from domain information sites…
Except Craigslist. Run a search for rentfb.com site:craigslist.org and you’ll see a whole lot of advertising going on:
(… and no, Google, I did not mean RENT)
Since the ad asks for zip code I suspect this is advertising-targeting or otherwise geography-based, but I don’t know enough about playing Facebook to have an idea.
Anybody seen this? Any thoughts?
UPDATE: I posted this story at 13:33 and Google had it indexed for the search term rentfb.com within five minutes. Yow.
