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.
Fake directory scams have been around for as long as there have been business directories. The only difference to ones running 50 years ago is the word "online" in the offer.
