Wanted: Comment shills for a "large project"

Are you in the Harrisburg area? Are you able to type in English? Well some weird company wants you to shill for them, offering $50 for your trouble. Here’s the post:

We are an internet marketing company that increases market awareness for our clients and there is a large project with a March 29th deadline, requiring 50 comments for each brand.

All you need is an internet connection and excel. No posting is required, only the blog post URL and comment is needed.

The estimated time for 50 comments is 3-4 hours.

50 comments – $50

We will offer future work to quality comment writers.

This is an ideal opportunity for students, stay-at-home moms, or anyone with writing skills looking to make extra money.

Seriously: is this actually still happening? First, no social site worth its salt will be affected by “50 comments,” a fairly small number in the first place. I’m amazed that anyone would try this in this day and age but $50 is nothing to sneeze at, especially given the economy. Instead of flaming us in comments, get over there and put your skills to good use, readers!

Note: I’m not condoning this. I think it’s ridiculous.
