Well, maybe not “delights”.

It’s time for your regularly scheduled bout of Tumblr spam. This is what’s currently doing the rounds at the moment: “Stop scrolling and get paid”, a work from home system being promoted by lots of unwanted Tumblr posts and a fake news website.

So I convinced my mom to buy me the work at home system at [url removed] because it was cheap as hell, and I wanted to try making money online. I made $190 in like 3 hours. It seemed too good to be true so I stopped doing it to see if they’d actually pay me.

So I spent the past 9 hours grinding hard yesterday and made $850. this is surreal and I am so [expletive deleted] excited. You guys need to break out your credit cards or get your parents to do it and buy this [url removed] (I know I posted this yesterday but it’s my good deed of the week to keep reblogging it, plus I found a cbs article talking about it. Get it while the getting is good! Article: [url removed] )

I’m not sure what I like more, the URL dropped into the text 3 times or the nag, nag, nag to rush out and wave credit cards at the computer (whether it’s you doing the waving or your parents). The site linked to is a particularly convincing CBS News fakeout, complete with (genuine) links all over the place for everything from the official Facebook page to various legitimate Twitter accounts.

If we take a look at the bit.ly stats page, we can see a bit of a flurry of activity in the last couple of days if filtered to “past 7 days”, along with a number of Twitter accounts all spamming the same link.

Our advice? Start scrolling and keep saving.
