Out the social news scammers (and take a C note off the table)

I’d like to try and out the advertisers and marketing firms on digg (and maybe even Netscape, who knows) that are paying folks to submit news for them. If you know of a firm doing this send me their name, the email they sent you, the URL of the story on digg/netscape, and/or who they are paying.

If your tip pans out I’ll send you $100 via paypal. Yep, I’ll pay you for ratting these folks out.

I will also keep your submission 100% confidential.

Also, if you’ve been paid for doing this in the past I’ll also keep your information 100% confidential. Remember, I don’t work at Netscape any more so I’m basically a very interested 3rd party. I just want to understand what these folks are doing.

You can send the emails to my personal account jason at calacanis dot com.

Again, 100% confidential. Let the madness begin. :-)
