Yellow Pages Scam

Please be careful when doing business with any company claiming to be the Yellow Pages. There seem to be dozens of these companies masquerading around as the actual Yellow Pages that we all grew up with. I have Seen yellow pages Inc., True Yellow pages and countless others.

Apparently there is no law stopping people from starting companies with the name Yellow Pages, designing a logo that looks like the traditional Yellow pages and sending out invoices and other direct mail to try to get money from people that will confuse the two.

Case in point, I know someone who recently received a check from the Yellow Pages and cashed it. What they didn’t realize was the fine print on the back of the check that said they now owe almost $200 for a useless Internet listing.

Don’t fall for this scam.
