According to an “advertorial” that popped up recently on some GreeneLand computer screens, a Catskillian named Kelly Richards has been making $6397 per month “working online”, part-time, from home.That is the gist of a “New York Job Report” concerning “Google Work At Home Programs.”The Report emanates from “Online News 6,” whose narrator says “I read Kelly's blog last month and decided to feature her story in our local job report. In our phone interview she told me her amazing story. ‘I actually make about $5,000-$7,000 a month using Google [although] I only work about 10-15 hours a week from home.’"
The narrator/reporter goes on to dwell on the scale and quality of Google as a company, to warn about on-line “scams” touting big returns, and to provide links that give access to ordering the lucrative Google Profit and Black Belt Profits kits.
To see the full text of the advertorial in legible size, click on the advertisement.It runs down through a series of ostensible comments and then through some small-print stipulations.Getting back out of the invitation requires a special step:with your cursor on the ad, click your Delete button; instead of exiting the site, you will be offered a choice between Cancel and OK; click OK.
Some features of this Advertorial are remarkable.Additional matters come to light after a bit of on-line snooping.Thus:
*The sponsoring agency, “On Line News 6,” is site-less.
*The putative investigative reporter for “On Line News 6,” though writing in the first person (“I read Kelly’s blog…”; “I asked her….”), is anonymous.
*The reference to Kelly Richards’s blog is not accompanied by a link thereto.
*The posted “Responses For [sic] This Article” seem to be dated prior to its publication, and they are shielded from verification.
*The prices of the touted recession-busting kits are not shown. Tucked into the fine print, however, references to application fees and monthly payments, as well as s to “negative option” or “continuity billing” and “Active Credit Card.”
*The source of payments to be received from this kit-guided on-line work is not identified.Although the Advertorial contains a picture of a big-dollar check from Google, the recipient’s name blocked out and nothing is said about what service the payment is for.No actual claim is made that Google pays for services rendered by Kelly Richards.
*In the small print, readers are advised that

Those words are followed immediately by a change of voice, in which the sender ventures, in capital letters, to put words in the mouth of the receiver:
That stipulation may help to account for the fact that nobody named Kelly Richards lives in Catskill.It also may help to account for the terms of near-duplicate Advertorials that have popped up on the screens of people in various locations.These “reports” from “On Line News 6” vary by date and by the identity of the home town of “Kelly Richards.” In addition to Catskill, it would seem, Ms Richards resides in Cairo NY, in Highland NY, in Lompoc CA and Hayward CA, in Black Diamond WA, and so on--depending on the whereabouts of the recipient’s internet service provider
