 This is urgent. I do not wish to see Care2 members hurt. Care2 is seemingly unable to protect us in this instance; we must protect ourselves, and each other. Please send this around to your friends, as an important warning for each one. Please also keep notifying Care2 of your concerns -- keep trying! Also, notifying law enforcement, or getting Care2 to notify law enforcement, is problematical, but maybe someone knows how this could be done, better than I know how.

Recently, we have been subject to annoying, intrusive ads from people calling themselves Shen and Jen and Han and Shi and Chi and Xia and all sorts of other names, which appear to be Chinese. Also, the ads are all the same or very similar; long lists of brand-name products at startlingly discounted prices. These ads have been appearing every day, day after day; often, several of them are in ONE thread, in Care2 News to Note -- to the extent that people give up and stop looking at the thread! It is particularly annoying, when the thread is about some tragedy, human or animal suffering and death! But, "annoying" is the LEAST of it..... I am appending a sample ad later on, so you can see what I mean.

WHAT THESE ADS ARE NOT:

No, there isn't somebody calling himself Jen who happens to have a lot of Gucci, Prada and Nike products he is selling out of his Mom's basement in Cincinnati!

These are not "real" Care2 members. They HAVE NO PROFILES. It is useless to get mad at them, try to talk to them or "reason" with them! They cannot be dealt with in the same way that Care2 members who "spam" are dealt with!

WHAT IS ACTUALLY GOING ON HERE:

These "names" are EMPLOYEES. There are apparently several of them; they change their names every day. They are Hackers who have discovered vulnerabilities in Care2's system so they can invade, repeatedly, day after day after day, with apparent impunity. Care2 seems to NOT delete even their old posts which have been REPEATEDLY FLAGGED by us!

These EMPLOYEES, work for an ADVERTISING AGENCY. This ADVERTISING AGENCY is a SLEAZY, ILLEGITIMATE business. Their specialty, is to INSERT ADS THAT NORMAL CHANNELS FOR ADVERTISING, WOULD NOT TAKE. That is why they ALWAYS put ads on our threads. You will NEVER see these ads in "legitimate" advertising places. And, it is NOT just to "save money"!

You see, THESE ADS ARE FOR AN ILLEGITIMATE "PRODUCT". To sell such "brand names" as Gucci, Prada, Nike, Ugg, Air Jordan, and numerous others, I won't try to list them all, WHEN THESE ITEMS WERE NOT ACTUALLY MADE BY THE COMPANY WHOSE TRADEMARK YOU ARE USING -- that is an INTERNATIONAL VIOLATION OF COPYRIGHT; and a CRIMINAL ACT that is seriously punishable! ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIAL ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, THAT CAME ACROSS SUCH GOODS, WOULD LEGALLY CONFISCATE THEM. You KNOW -- if you have a brain in your head! -- you KNOW that at the prices given, THAT CANNOT POSSIBLY BE THE REAL BRAND-NAME PRODUCT.

Somewhere, one assumes in China, there are FACTORIES WORKING FULL-TIME TO TURN OUT FAKE BRAND-NAME PRODUCTS. Like these listed purses, shoes, sunglasses, shirts, hats, and more. Since even the REAL Nike factories have come under criticism for the way they treat workers, and working conditions -- but, at least Nike factory officials say they have improved, and Nike is now under International supervision -- just think, how HORRENDOUS the working conditions must be, like SLAVERY, to produce FAKE NIKES at one-tenth the selling price of the REAL THING -- and still make a profit!

But, that's not the ONLY thing to think about.

THESE CRIMINALS WANT YOUR CREDIT CARDS

THINK -- THINK. They are ALREADY an illegitimate, a CRIMINAL enterprise. ARE YOU GOING TO TRUST THEM WITH YOUR CREDIT CARD NUMBER?????????????????

It may very well be, that either the Advertising Agency, or the Company manufacturing the FAKE products, has a nice lucrative little sideline, in acquiring and then re-selling CREDIT CARD NUMBERS you send in when you order this crap!!! They are ALREADY BREAKING SEVERAL LAWS -- so why not?????????????

I am concerned, because Care2 has all sorts of members, from old to very young, from smart to stupid; and we have seen time & again, people falling for obvious and not-so-obvious scams. BY LEAVING THE ADS UP UNTOUCHED, FOREVER APPARENTLY -- Care2 is MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR SOME SILLY TEENAGER WHO THINKS THEY ARE GETTING A "REAL DEAL" ON A BRAND-NAME SOMETHING -- TO SEND IN THEIR CREDIT CARD NUMBER......[remember, there's a sucker born every minute!]

They may or may not even get the product: if you buy a fake Gucci bag such as I hear are being sold on the streets of New York City, at least you SEE what you are getting -- and at least you are actually getting a bag! [and paying cash!]. People may receive NOTHING in the mail, or just a box full of paper, or some indescribable piece of junk that falls apart.... whatever they receive, it is certain that it WON'T be the brand-name product they thought they were sending for!!! THAT is why I am concerned that Care2 leaves these ads up FOREVER -- not just because of the "nuisance" of it all!

PLEASE KEEP FLAGGING THESE CRIMINAL ADS FOR PHONEY PRODUCTS. PLEASE KEEP LETTING CARE2 KNOW ABOUT YOUR CONCERNS.

PLEASE WARN OTHER CARE2 MEMBERS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN, ABOUT THIS CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE THAT CARE2 IS ALLOWING, THRU INACTION AND INDIFFERENCE APPARENTLY, TO USE ITS PREMISES UNDISTURBED.

Here is a TYPICAL AD in the regular Format they all use:

These are precisely the FAKE PRODUCTS that these ads are about. This is from the change.org Petition Site:

Stop Raccoon Dogs Being Skinned Alive in China for fake Ugg Boots Suffering Slow, Sickening Horrendous Deaths

I think I might POST THIS the next time I see one of those DISGUSTING ADS!!!
Feel free to do that if you want to post it!
