I normally try to post aspirational and inspiring photos on my feed - and this is one of those beautiful places we visited this past December. The circumstances behind why we were there are not so great though. ???? . We were there as part of an elaborate scam targeting Instagrammers and Content Creators, luring them to Jakarta on the premise of exhibiting their photography with Wendi Murdoch, the famous ex-wife of Rupert Murdoch. It was a well crafted scam that's actually been going on for the past four years in different forms. In the past they've targeted filmmakers, military contractors, and even hairdressers. They are now actively targeting Instagrammers specifically and AS I TYPE THIS - THERE ARE STILL people flying to Jakarta and Jakarta being actively scammed!???? . You can read more about it on my profile and in my stories. Please share and spread awareness about this - from my research it looks like about hundred Instagrammers have been scammed so far in the past couple months! ???? . Let's band together as a community and stop this in it's tracks! ?? . #HenryZoryInMalaysia

Henry Wu the Nepp also discussed this on his Instagram account with a beautiful picture, of course,

Others have tried to milk Influencer, you have to have to pay for it: The American entrepreneur Billy McFarland had specified with the Rapper Ja Rule, to organize a luxury Festival on the of the Bahamas island of Great Exuma. He had approached with the promise of fine food, luxury Lifestyle and music Performances, particularly Influencers, and with names such as Kendall Jenner or Bella Hadid curly. The festival visitors will be paid in the four-digit dollar range for Tickets, and found on the spot instead of noble huts and stars kitchen tents and pre-packaged Sandwiches. The Stunt drew several charges and ended in October for McFarland with a harsh judgment: He must pay back to prison for six years and the 26 million dollars that he ergaunerte,.

$ 500 for cheap shoes

a bit of harmless fashion-Influencer, the end of last year, a Shoe dealer food came: The brand of Payless in the United States price value of the footwear offered had opened – probably as a Publicity Stunt in Los Angeles, a false luxury, business, by offering their own Low-Budget-shoes for several Hundred dollars. Some of the Influencers that were invited, who fell for the Trick at the end of the "social experiment" as the company called it, got them back the money and were allowed to keep the shoes.

The sustained Influencer-the Hype gets so little of my time is enjoyed to the Plan in an industry, the rules are still not fixed and reliably measurable Numbers knows, actually, no wonder. Sometimes, financial damage is done here, as the story of Rudd and the Wu shows. All about Influencer funny, the Schadenfreude. (Editorial Tamedia)
