Adsense Blackmail – A New Form of Online Modus

Do you know the newest from of Online Modus Operandi? It’s what I call ‘Adsense Blackmail’. What’s with this ‘Adsense Blackmail’ and how does this work?

I’m not sure if anyone of you already experienced this. But this morning, upon checking my mails, I got this comment for approval under PCO [http://www.pinaycelebrityonline.com/2009/09/alodia-gosengfiao-bikini-photos.html#comments].

Nothing new as the site has been used to receiving comments from Pinay Celebrity fans. But there’s something different from this comment. It’s not about Alodia Gosengfiao or her photos. It’s actually a blackmail as if commanding me to click on his adsense ads everyday and if not, he’ll click on the ads on the site and later get it banned under adsense. Here’s the complete comment.

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post “Alodia Gosengfiao Bikini Photos“:

Hi, this is urgent. I will click all your adsense ads many times everyday if you do not comply with what I am going to say.

Go to http://youtubemegavideo.blogspot.com/ and click my adsense ads 5 times (different ads). That’s it. If you dont want your adsense account to be banned, follow what I told you.

If you do not, I have records in my logs and if I find out that you did not comply with what I said, you will get what you deserve.

Well, well, well. At first I thought, who in the world in his sane self would do this kind of stuff? In great desperation to earn online would want to bring down others? Very crab mentality, I must say. I just hope you’re not a Filipino cause you’re a disgrace in this country.

So what did I do after reading this kind of comment? I actually approved it, for everyone to see what this guy is doing. And then, I actually visited his blogsite http://youtubemegavideo.blogspot.com/ but did not clicked on any ads. From the looks of it, won’t take much time till Google notice your site. The domain itself is already a violation.

Then after that, I quickly reported the incident to Adsense itself. Let’s see where this case will go.

If ever you have the same experience, a comment or an email coming from anonymous people blackmailing you, I suggest we create some action. Post a comment with your own experience and we’ll create a link of each others experience on this very bad blogging practice.
