Ebay and the FBI Lay Down the Hammer on Cheating Affiliates


Interesting story on Business Insider: How eBay Worked With The FBI To Put Its Top Affiliate Marketers In Prison

A couple random things in the article, though:

"...and speak the arcana of affiliate marketing..." So cloak and dagger... and ridiculous. "The problem with affiliate marketing is that there isn't much money in it." No, affiliate marketing is not a get rich quick scheme. Some people make full-time livings with it, and most others use it to supplement their incomes. I am not sure how this would be labeled a "problem".


The rest of the story...

The overlooked part of the story is that during the initial raid the cat sat there doing nothing other than posing for photos. This really illustrates how little concern cats have for protecting their human's home. If there's a chance that someone is going to break in unannounced, go with a Doberman or Rottweiler. Heck, even a senile Chihuahua would have objected to the intrusion. :)

You can't trust cat owners

I've been saying this for a long time.
