    As a legit business person, it annoys me just how easily some people can turn a profit from others stupidity.

    HAHA, in my experience 95% of businesses make their money (or at least better margins) from other people's stupidity...

    :p

    The way these guys had the app set up within Facebook to collect user data was pretty good.
    I will admit most people who do not take the time to check things would have been hit.

    This is not something like where you click on an external link and then it redirects you to FAceb00k.com and has a login page ripped.

    Stupidity could be replaced with laziness in many cases.

    It would make me feel better anyway. :)
