Type of a scam Yellow Pages/Directories

My business received a brochure in the mail from what appeared to be a local yellow pages company, American Business Yellow Pages. It asked me to review/correct my business information and return to update my listing in their yellow pages. I didn’t even hesitate or question it’s legitimacy. Of course I updated my info and sent it back.

Now – we’ve received an invoice for $259 for our listing, and it’s an automatic renewal on a semi-annual basis. As I never saw one thing on the first mailing about agreeing to these fees, I realized I’d been scammed. Sure enough, a quick google search confirmed that I had fallen prey with many other small businesses. Thankfully, I am my own finance person – so no poor employee will fall for this very legitimate looking invoice and pay my company’s hard earned money to scammers.

Research about this has directed me to the to complain, and advised to not have any contact with the scammers at all. Beware – you may have employees wanting to help your business succeed – warn them about this.
