Chapeau Awards

I've been getting junk mail from a supposed blog awards group for Chapeau Awards.  They want bloggers to pay a fee to be considered for an award.

I don't know why I'm really posting this, other than I am just irked that a scam would run that would target food bloggers like this.  Then again, maybe it's the only way I'll ever get an award! :)

I've been getting them too. I laughed really hard when I saw the website and the hefty fee to be considered for their award. Har!

I'm glad it's not just me seeing it... I just hope nobody has fallen for it (I wouldn't expect people on here to fall for it).

Yep, I'm getting it too- the spam is just annoying.

This stuff I just delete, unread.

As bloggers get more and more sophisticated, does it seem like scams get, well, dumber?

Cheers!

Food Blog Scool has been getting them too. We just marked them as spam in the inbox. It's a cruel way of preying on naive bloggers, which I hope that none of our members fall for. Thanks for bringing it to everyones' attention!

I thought it was just another avenue for bloggers to promote their site, that is, until I came to the part where they wanted money! :(
