Madeleine McCann Ebay Spam

Posted on: May 16, 2007

Ebay has started being spammed with Madeleine Mccann stuff. For some reason everywhere has started to say that all money raised will go to the Madeleine McCann fund. Maybe I’ve just been working online too long but it seems reminiscent of the email spam that I always get about these sort of issues.

An exmaple can be found at:

These could all be truthful attempts to raise money but I find the whole idea of promoting any product under this banner hard to stomach. Inherently I find it hard to trust people who use this as a way to sell something even if the proceeds do go to a fund.
