An article shared with me from a friend. It's a bit long, but enough to be outraged about. You only need to read to about page 2 or 3, after that it's just background info.
A TL;DR version is a woman wanted to buy a particular brand of glasses/contacts and googled that brand. Up came this website. They caused some seriously wrong problems with her, and no one would really ACTIVELY help her till this reporter did something. The company that did that didn't even care and admitted that being an asshole with everyone writing about his site gave him great advertisement on google since everyone linked to it, so it became his sale mantra.
Another type of scum in the world. This is why I tell my family and friends (and now you my followers, probably more as a reminder) to ALWAYS get more info about a website before ordering from it. When you google a site, you often will have reviews of it pop in the search as well. When I was internet-stupid, I made the mistake of releasing personal information on a random website, and almost got taken away with it. Luckily my credit card company was reasonable and cut off the transaction and the thing was never heard from again.
If anyone has their own stories similar to this, I'd be interested in hearing them! But please take care with online spending. Warn your loved and liked ones.
