Exposing Some New Trademark Poachers

sam.engel Jun 27, 2013

We've recently completed a pair of investigations: one centered around coupon sites and another on the URL shortener ADFly.

Our coupon investigation was just published on the HasOffers blog this afternoon, and covers a number of trademark poaching coupon sites—including what's most likely a new example of the mobile recurring billing scam. In the second piece, our AdFly exposé published by PerformanceIn, we uncover a number of misleading Twitter accounts that send users to interstitial advertising. These accounts pretend to be famous brands, most notably some popular soccer (football) clubs.

We hope you find these interesting! If you'd like any additional insight about either of these stories, feel free to reach out to us.
