It’s a common technique for flogs (fake blogs) to use photoshopped pictures to misrepresent their product or business. I’ve shown examples of this in the past with the “American Anti-Aging Association” and their ever changing headquarters building.

Recently I’ve been getting a pop-up of a Google Cash scam with a hilarious photoshop. The company is called “Internet Payday” and their headquarters building is quite impressive. As you can see from the screenshot, they’ve got “Internet Payday” on the entry way at the bottom of the page and then at the top of the building they’ve got their logo:
What’s interesting about their building, however, is that it bears a striking resemblance to the GM headquarters, so striking in fact, that I have to conclude that either a) the architect who built the GM building used the same design for Internet Payday or b) this is a poor choice for a building to photoshop.
By the way, if you want to enjoy the whole site in all its glory, here’s the link to the page, and I’m giving them some free inbound linking: Google Cash Scam.
