Anatomy of of an Online Cancer Scam

10 years 5 months ago #17953 by Zachary

Its first offering is an analysis of claims made for a fictitious "Natural Herbal Formula." Scrolling over the text of a page designed to look an advertisement produces pop-up bubbles that comment on the tactics that scammers use to hook people.
