I need someone to...

...click on the ad-link about "my wrinkles were getting worse and I was feeling embarassed ... blah-blah ... 60 Minutes ... blah-blah ... 15yrs younger ...

I accidentally clicked on it, and when its ad popped up, it stated her name (Erin something) and that she lived in LOGANVILLE, GA...which is only about 12mi from me.
I am wondering if this is a marketing strategy to 'suck people in'.
Can someone who lives in a different state than Georgia please click on it and see what the ad says her name/city/state is?

Re: I need someone to...

Where are you seeing this? I looked all over the main page and didn't see anything, all over The Lounge page, still nothing. Maybe my work computer has an Ad blocker or something?

I'd love to check it out, though, if I could!

I checked and found Erin. Maybe you need to take a run to see if you can find her house, and see what she looks like in person.

Re: I need someone to...

For me, it comes up at the top of every page. As a matter of fact, it is there right now above my reply box.
Very odd...
We use McAfee and I have Malawarebytes on this PC for picking up little invasives from the interwebz.
Thanks for wanting to, though!

Leazie...was she in Loganville?!!!!! Crazy weird... I just checked my phonebook and it lists 12 with the last name of: Kelley and 2 with the last name spelled like: Kelly. Not intrigued enough to go "stalker" on them and call, though! What would I say:

"Um, hi. I was surfing the internet at a Cat Forum and saw your ad, so I thought I'd call you since you live so close to me." Maybe I could add: "Will you be my friend?" and give her a REAL reason to call the men with those loong-sleeved white coats whose arms tie in the back.

The advertisement it there but clicking on it won't work for me. I tried three different times and each time it took me to a different advertising site. The first time was something about renting videos online, the second was a address finding site and the third was a Nationwide advertisement.
Maybe the computer thinks my 51 year old face doesn't need a wrinkle remover.

I got Erin, too, but the ad I saw didn't say anything about where she lived (at least not that I could find).

Hope I don't get wrinkle cream ads popping up on my computer now
