I’ve started to compile a list of fake agencies – those “companies” or people who are attempting to scam the industry by either creating fake agencies or piggybacking names of current agencies. While many of these companies specifically book media for the purpose of inserting malware into the tags, I’ve included companies that are also engaged in media buying for the purpose of not paying, inserting multiple ad tags to cheat the customer and similar stuff. This list will be updated on a regular basis as I get information, so keep it updated! Send your examples to email@example.com. Read this article.
