Our Google Treasure Chest post has been a happenin’ place for comments lately. A lot of people are coming forward with their stories…helping each other cancel and get refunds…commiserating. It’s a beautiful thing to see.
We wrote a post last week about how the Texas attorney general has filed charges against “Infusion Media,” which owns Google Money Tree. One of the commenters on the Google Treasure Chest thread linked to the original complaint, which answers the question many people have been asking:
Are Google Money Tree and Google Treasure Chest run by the same people?
It appears the answer is yes. If you care to read the official court document, you’ll see that googletreasurechest.com and googlemoneytree.com are both named in the action. It also names the dude who apparently runs the thing. And he lives a stone’s throw from my office. How weird is that??
So the “Jail” in the title might be a little premature. Innocent until proven guilty and all. But we can hope, right?
