Diet spammers are not running out of new tricks. Background information about this spam campaign can be found from my other blog.
Today I spotted some suspicious tweets pointing to a Game Informer blog. I have not seen gamers posting about “Dr Oz” or “Garcinia Cambogia for Weight Loss” before now…
Screen-shot of the blog post:
Obviously it does not make sense to report this blog post as malicious although it is clearly related to the diet spam campaign. Game Informer should take action in case this kind of blog post violates their terms of service.
I have also tried to contact Pinterest, but only received an automated response. The amount of spam pins is increasing heavily. Twitter is clearly trying to stop this campaign, but I’m not so sure about Pinterest.
