How the scam works:
Using the Yellow Pages’ logo and a fake registration form, scammers are trying to sell fake ads in the trusted publication.
First, they approach all the businesses by phone, and whoever might be interested will receive a follow up e-mail with the form and some great deals. The crooks take the client’s information, the credit card number, and vanish.
How to avoid:
The real Yellow Pages agents will give you a good understanding of the system, layout, prices, etc. Be very careful of the scammer’s approach. If in doubt, call the real Yellow Pages main desk and ask for the names that the scammers give you.
