Herding the mob…

Great story on Wired’s site today Herding the Mob about how we can be manipulated and defrauded using online rating systems such as the one on Ebay. 

According to Wired

“As rating systems have become more popular there has been what some would say is a predictable response: the emergence of scammers, spammers, and thieves bent on manipulating the mob. Call it crowdhacking.”

A nice way to start Fraud Awareness Month…
