People really will fall for anything

I’ve gotten two emails this week with publicity for the “Chapeau Blog Awards“. I’m not impressed at all.

Upon review, it appears to be similar to the “Who’s Who” publication scams (I’m looking at you, “Madison Who’s Who”) in that it requires entrants to pay from $195-250 to be considered for an “award” of dubious merit.

I feel sorry for those people who are so desperate for recognition that they’ll fall for this scam and end up doing nothing but lining the pockets of the people running these “awards” with money.
