    Google lets click-baiters post ads using Martin's image 22nd Apr 18 at 3:07 PM
    I've been seeing ads served by Google that feature Martin's image.

    The ad links to a fake Mirror style article about a "Bitcoin opportunity"

    The same website with the fake article also uses Martin's image for Amazon affiliate links.

    Shame how the Google ad network and Amazon affiliate network doesn't check who they deal with.

    regards.

    Always ask yourself one question: What would Gibbs do?

    Still, think of all the tax they are paying the UK Government on those profits. Oh, wait.
