A Government Bailout? Pour Moi?

Surely a Facebook ad that promises that I can get money from the government to buy a house, pay bills, or start a business as part of “billions of dollars” of bailout money must be legit, right?
Oh wait, it’s yet another fake blog, but this time its sending us to the good ole “get government grants for free!” trick.
What’s next? How about a blog about someone’s incredible winning streak on an online casino, or the adult video web site that is absolutely free? When will consumers start to discount blogs entirely, or when will publishers stop this sort of nonsense? As for the latter scenario, don’t hold your breath, especially in this economy!
