"All that I warned my colleagues about a year ago - came true," the Synodov wrote, referring to the publication of the publication "Kommersant Money" about advertisers fraudsters from the Laboratory of Investment Technologies and the Exchange University. Another similar company, Unity Finance, has a closed site, and no "tails" of this office can be found. Yuri Synodov notes that the reaction of some media to exposing the scammers they promoted is "very interesting": TJournal "quietly deleted his article, as if nothing happened", "Medusa" also deleted two articles and stated that in order to refuse Advertiser, the editor usually looks for formal reasons, checks the licenses, founders and the essence of the advertising message. "Lies. To deny the advertiser you need only your desire, "- answers the Synod. In the editorial rules of "Medusa" - do not advertise Forex. Synods convicts journalists of guile: "Do not advertise Forex, and advertise breakfast in the office of Forex trading - an elegant way to deceive your own rules. Obviously, people from selling seminars can only be dragged into Forex, which the office is engaged in, otherwise, why spend money? ".


Earlier, Yuri Synodov wrote a note entitled "Why native advertising is a hole for scammers", in which he mentioned "TJournal", which posted a paid article on stock exchange trading. The material even claimed that "there are no risks in the companies of trust management". Of course, such "zazyzy" are designed for ordinary citizens who do not have financial education and are prone to naivety. In addition, the Synods criticized the article of the resource Meduza.io, noting, however, that "these are not such morons as on TJournal, but also handsome", they write tailored articles thinner and trickier. In the expositions of the Synod, Ekho Moskvy, Business FM and other media are also mentioned.


The employee of the Moscow communication agency interviewed by us believes that the problem is not only in native advertising: "The so-called natural, native or hidden advertising is really a hole for scammers. But most of the both native and non-native advertisements related to financial services, various business trainings and the like are advertising scammers, or, more rarely, real sectarians, who hide behind business rhetoric. Not only Medusa and Ekho Moskvy are involved, but also many other publications of very different levels and different orientations.
