UK: Fraudsters Posing As Yellow Pages In Scam [news.bbc.co.uk]
Fraudsters posing as being from the Yellow Pages advertising directory have been cheating schools and colleges by offering them adverts online.

Westminster City Council has seized cheques totalling about 10,000 sent by educational institutions and businesses to "The Yellow Pages 24" company.

The fraudsters charge up to 600 for adverts, with cheques sent to German bank accounts or W1 mailbox addresses.
