    I was contacted by parismma.com who wished to buy ad space on my blog. After we had already negotiated price they asked me to install a WordPress plugin to run the ad. I'm a bit nervous about running an unknown plugin. Has anyone heard of:

    parismma.com

    or their plugin:

    AdvWidget which extends WP_Widget

    Advice?

    Here is the source code:

    Did you decide to move forward with Parismma? I recently received an inquiry from them as well and I have the same concerns. Please let me know how it went. Thanks.

    I told them yes, before they mentioned the asked me to install a widget. Then I never heard from them again. They had promised to send payment via paypal but they did not. I assume they are hackers. I'm not about to install their code on my blog without being sure it is safe.

    I am also hesitant to the plug-in, I already downloaded it but not yet installed.

    Any thoughts about this Paris MMA? Are they legit?

    I found his website review and they said that Parismma will add malware to your site >> http://www.webutation.net/go/review/parismma.com#

    I sent the link to this page to the guy I was dealing with, when the last comment was by johnernet, and asked him to comment, but he never replied here or to me. so i guess they're hackers/scammers. oh well. i would have loved to make an extra $150 a month. tsk tsk.

    They contacted me last week. I told them $350/month. LOL.

    They accepted my terms right away. I wondered if I asked too little.

    They sent the plugin and directions for installing this morning.

    After looking at the site they were linking to I found several spelling errors and poor sentence structure. Kinda lame for a classy media marketing firm, don't you think.

    Yeah. Right. Install their plugin on my site. I don't think so.
