Google Revolution: A Great Scam

Google Revolution uses Craigslist to scam new victims into their fold (
http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/gmail/thread?tid=7888f0a8b89178a9&hl=en). Job seekers are too broke to pay their bills, but they may fall for parting for their credit card, especially when Google Revolution hooks you for a free 14-day trial for $1.87, then they bill you a week later for $73.83 and continue doing the every month. The package they promise NEVER comes, so the too good to be true is actually as bad as it gets.

You can let their ISP, Single Edge, know that you're pissed and that you see them as liable for the web site they are running: http://www.singleedge.com/page.php/contact/Contact-Us.html

Where is this site running out of?

Resources, National domains@myebiz.com
National Marketing Resources, LLC
351 W. Washington
Kearney, Missouri 64060
United States
(800) 544-9459 Fax -- (800) 506-7838

The best part: there is no "351 W. Washington"-- it's just an empty field. You can complain to GoDaddy if the data for NMR Direct and Google Revolution is not accurate.

Drupal + Star Trek

I am a Drupal geek and a Star Trek geek. Take the two, sprinkle in some frustration, a catchy tune and Adobe Premiere Elements and voila:
