I was on AOL news this morning and saw this article.  I read it, because pathetically enough I had just gotten off my Farmville.  The claims made in the article didn’t seem very viable.  Farmville doesn’t charge you anything unless you purchase coins yourself.  They clearly indicate when real money could be used and you have to put in your credit card number.  The other claims about green tea and pills is the same thing.  People need to be more careful about what sites they share their credit card numbers with.
