Should AOL carry ads like this

What do you think? Should AOL run ads like this one. I don't think so, they are encouraging the gullible ones to waste their money. This was on their site tonight click here

I'm not with AOL anymore but I agree with you and think that they shouldn't be shown as that ad looks dodgy to say the least!

They are a tax on stupidity and people's belief that they can earn oodles of money for doing very little. There is no reason why they cannot run as they are usually within the law.

is not fully legal, in that it does not contain a geographical address for the seller.

Apart from that, it's a classic example of the type of thing which appeals to gullible people who think there's a formula that can make you rich for an investment of £39:50. Nobody with any intelligence is going to fall for it.
