Marketing scammers are trying to make a buck off of the last season of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," reports the New York Post’s Page Six.
A company called New Products Events is asking publicists to pay $5,000 to help get their wares on "Oprah’s Favorite Things" product list, the story says. The company claims that the payment will get publicists’ clients invited to a Chicago event with two or three lead producers on the show.
But representatives for Winfrey’s Harpo says that the pitch is a scam, the article adds, "No one at Harpo has sanctioned such an event or is involved in it," according to a representative. A representative for New Products Events didn’t respond, the story says.
