Easy Money, Sell Your Friends.

I recieved the following email in my MySpace inbox yesterday. Some company is buying up profiles with over 20,000 friends. Take a look:

Subject: TOP CASH FOR YOUR MYSPACE ACCOUNT
Body: If you have over 20,000 myspace friends in your account and would like to sell it, please contact me
I'm offering top dollar for these accounts. So, if you or someone you know wants to sell, then I'm looking to buy. ;-)
email me at: siteinvestor@yahoo.com

---------------------------------------

Ain't that some shit? Now all I need is Adder Robot and a few gmail accounts and I'll be able to make a quick buck. I wonder what they pay? I'll drop them a line and find out, I'll let you know what happens.

** Update: I contacted these people via email and I got a reply back. They wouldn't tell me straight up how much they would pay for a profile. Instead they wanted to see my profile and how many friends I had before they talked business. The problem is I don't have enough friends - so if anyone out there has 20K+ friends and is willing to play along let me know.

Thanks to Waxy and Boing Boing for linking to this!

If this is your first time at BSC please look around, it's possible there's more then one good post here.

So this company uses a yahoo email account and sends emails featuring winkie emoticons?

Yeah, seems legit to me.

check ebay anytime- advertise on someones myspace for $$, the more friends they have the more they charge for "top 8 listing" Myspace is being taken over by advertisers. I would like to know what % of the myspace's population are ads.

how do you know it's a "company" or any kind of spammer offering the money? for all i know it could be an idiot 14 year old girl with a lil too much cash on her hands.

Why don't you just make up 20,000 names? I suppose that's a lot, but a computer could make up that many.

MyAdSpace as the LiveJournal kids call it.

I think that this is crazy but if you can take advantage of it, why not? Think about it... if you had two accounts, one for your real friends and normal stuff and the other with 20,000+ people who you could care less about... some guy comes along offering you 100 bones to be in your top 8, DONE.
