scam • noun, a confidence game or other fraudulent scheme, esp. for making a quick profit; swindle.

How is it a scam. No money changed hands. No fraud was committed. The G&M made no profit, quick or otherwise from this "deal."

Perhaps the OP meant to title this thread The Globe and Mail Embarrassment.
