  • Vultures Surrounding the Carcass: Scammers Use Go! Comi Site for Fraud

    Widgets Magazine
    Story on ANN.

    Apparently, some scammers have taken over the old Go! Comi domain and are pretending to be the company, attempting to "revive" itself, and asking for donations.

    A warning has already gone out over Twitter from Audry Taylor, former Go! Comi creative director:

    @AudryT AudryT
    WARNING: MY FORMER GOCOMI.COM WEBSITE HAS BEEN TURNED INTO A SCAM. IT IS NOT REAL. DO NOT DONATE. GONNA SICK MY LAWYERS ON THEM. PLEASE RT.
    Feel free to pass along the info to your friends.

    How unbelievably sad. I hope they don't get a cent of anyone's money.

      The horrible English should also be a pretty big red flag for anyone reading the new page.

      Help us rebuilding Go! Comi.

        Right? Talk about low. Whether or not they fool anyone into donating, in the meantime I bet they're at least getting some nice ad revenue from all of the fans who will go and check (or already have) their old domain simply out of curiosity from these news reports.
        Yay! There's debauchery here!
