Hall of Scumbags: Media Top advertising agency and Veronica Scranton

Written by Mr. WellCultured, Saturday, March 18th, 2017 in From the Editor

Here at Well Cultured, we get a lot of solicitations from companies to review or promote their products.  We have never accepted an offer unless (1) we intend to review – not just promote – the product, (2) we explicitly disclose the relationship in the article and in advance, and (3) our review would be genuinely interesting to our readers. 

Today, we received such a scummy, trashy, and ultimately insulting “offer” that I felt that you should know about it.  

Media Top “advertising  agency,” through agent Veronica Scranton (likely a pseudonym), offered to pay us to “slip in” an online gaming advertisement in an article:

 

Media Top may want to review the FTC’s Enforcement Policy Statement on Deceptively Formatted Advertisements.

  1. Oh my gosh! Good thing I Googled Veronica Scranton and found this! I just received an email from her (around 13 hours ago) and offered to commission an article from me as well. I replied to ask for more details but haven’t received a response yet. If I receive one within the week, I’ll see how she goes with it too. Thanks for this!!!

  2. Thanks for this, I just received an email from her as well. It seemingly came out of nowhere and was so poorly written that I immediately considered it some kind of spam. Glad to see I’m not alone in my suspicions.

    I just got one from Regina Soto from Media Top… same idea, just less details included. I googled the company and found this post. Glad I did- think I’ll steer clear of this little deal.
