Ad network PSA abuse

Ad network PSA abuse

Most of the ad displays were still filled and lit, albeit with PSAs. In my opinion this is abuse of the PSAs. Chances are the ad network provides this service free to the non-profits they provide PSA-fills for, however, they likely get a tax write-off at market rates. Given that the Nanuet Mall was essentially 100% filled with PSAs, I would guess the ad network receives a very sizable benefit despite the lack of any real market for ads at this location. Of course, the poster does include some good tips on avoiding mortgage modification frauds. It reads:

If they ask you to pay a fee upfront for a mortgage, run, run fast. Loan modification scammers make promises they can't keep. Be aware and know the tactics they use:
* Asking for full or partial payment upfront.
* Guaranteeing to stop a foreclosure or save your home.
* Saying they have a high success rate.
* Telling you to stop making mortgage payments.
