As always, there’s another scam to separate you from your hard earned money. Only this time, we can stop the madness.
The latest money grab comes from none other than Kim Kardashian, who has partnered with Glu Mobile on Kim Kardashian: Hollywood, a smartphone game where users advance by living the celebrity lifestyle.
In order to go from an E-List to an A-list celebrity, players do things like going to fashion shoots and hanging out with other celebrities.
Yes, it’s vapid, but a lot of online games are. It’s not like there’s any existential meaning to Angry Birds or Candy Crush.
The problem is that people are blowing millions – yes millions – on the game.
The game itself is free but Kardashian and Glu Mobile makes their real money from in-app purchases. Players can buy “koins” to move ahead in the game, and can spend anywhere from $4.99 to $99.99 in one shot.
