Holy shit...
Fake your space... Now it truly is the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire... I will bet this is a huge success 'cos there are enough "Lamo's" out there who will pay 99 cents a month to recieve fake messages from fake people... It's really sad when you think about it. On the other hand, I will have that twelth cognac... And what was the url for the web site that connects me to all the people who TRULY love me... Good job I'm in a real profession... Advertising... Arrgghh!

there (sadly) is another site (www.mobilealibi.com) where you can schedule "Image" calls - complete with fake voices and Caller ID information - to make yourself look more popular. If that wasn't enough, they also offer "rescue" calls to help you escape bad and boring situations.
Is this a trend?
