Interesting Myspace Feature

| | Comments (0)
Bands on Myspace have been targets of hackers, scammers and phishers for quite some time - grab the account of a popular artist or twelve, and all Hell can break loose. I was surprised to see this when doing a few searches on Myspace earlier today:

As you can see, the "official" band profile is surrounded by a striking red border (no, we didn't add that ourselves) and it says "Myspace Verified - Official Artist" at the top. This is a great way to cut down on the possibility of scammers impersonating legit acts. Not sure how long this feature has been in place, but a good idea methinks...
