Scott Allen Joe Jobbed

Posted by Luminus on March 13, 2006

It’s just amazing the lengths some people would go to just to get attention or to register a beef with someone.

Scott Allen, of The Virtual Handshake and Entrepreneur.com fame (he blogs for http://entrepreneur.about.com) has been joe jobbed! A Joe Job, as defined by Wikipedia, is “an incident of spamming designed to tarnish the reputation of an innocent third party.?

What they’ve done with Scott is taken his name and email addressed and spammed the hell out of a lot of blogs… some of which hadn’t heard of him. They’ve sometimes inserted his telephone number, and other times used his wife’s name.

Thankfully, he’s taken some sage advice and reported the incidence(s) he’s aware of to the FBI internet crime division. Since the joe jobber has implicated About.com, I’m sure their mighty legal department may have something to say regarding it.
