  1. Great post! I have been looking around for some legitimate place to place an ad. I did come across inetgiant and was wondering if they are a good company. Its good to see that they are looking out for online scams.

    There are so many scams out there. But there are also true products out there. Its too bad that since there are so many scams out there that it makes everyone skeptical about everything. The scams put a cloud over the real products and truthfully its hard to find that real product.

    Maybe there needs to be more of a screening process when placing ads. Maybe these classified ad companies need to screen people before the ads are placed. Screening by actually calling them and verifying the product. It may take a lot of work, but maybe it would reduce the number of scams out there.

    There will always be scams, but maybe we can reduce them one at a time so that the real products can shine.
