It’s not yet a foregone conclusion. But it would appear that the fat lady has drawn a deep breath and is about to sing the EROS.COM BLUES. Pursuant to a search and seizure warrant, Homeland Security agents raided a call center in North Carolina which is either a contractor for – or is actually a part of Eros.com. Nobody’s been arrested and the site is still in operation. But is there any doubt that the end is near?
Eros has never had a lot of friends in the advertising infrastructure community. And I don’t picture anybody going to bat on their behalf. Time will tell the outcome. But I have a sense that the time will be coming sooner than later. Here’s the video from an ABC affiliate in North Carolina. Enjoy (or lament).
