Bruno Fagali’s Bid To Shut Down Corruption Red Flags In The Advertising Industry

In Brazil, advertising agencies are paid in terms of bonuses by the media when they advertise. Therefore, these advertising firms provide the advertisers with the services but the money goes to the agencies instead of the communication vehicles they negotiated with. This connection between the media and the advertising agencies is what creates loopholes which are then misused.
