I donâ€™t usually agree with TechCrunch, but lately Iâ€™ve been pretty impressed with Michael Arringtonâ€™s pursuit of the online scammers. This is a problem which a lot of people have been involved with, but it took Arringtonâ€™s ScamVille writeup before anyone took action. As a direct result of Arringtonâ€™s article, most of the participants took action. OfferPal replaced itâ€™s CEO, while Zynga, RockYou, MySpace, and others all took a chance to tighten their anti-scam policies. As Arrington notes, it is likely just a matter of time before new scams re-emerge â€“ there is too much money on the table. But I still think Arrington deserves tremendous credit for rooting this out.
His latest article calls out Video Professor as a scam, and I think heâ€™s right on target again. If you donâ€™t put your prices on your website, youâ€™re a scam. Video Professor sucks. Go Mike!
