I got a call from a very aggressive salesman yesterday.

"Your business has been ON OUR SITE for two years. I wanted to verify your information so I can send your invoice for $349 to keep you covered until 2008."

Who is this? I don't remember asking for this.

"Sir, you are ON OUR SITE. You have been listed for two years. I just wanted to send your invoice..."

Well, send some information. I'd like to see what you are before sending any money. (I was just being polite.)

"Well if you aren't going to pay, there's no sense me sending an invoice. We only send invoices to paying customers, so if you aren't going to pay..."

If I was not busy, I would have looked at page rank and inbound links to this cruddy site of theirs.
I wonder how many people a day they get to fork over $349 to be listed in a PHONE BOOK on the INTERNET for a local business?

You should report them as a scam. Did you get a URL or a company name?

LOL. Maybe I should teach my sales people this tactic. ;-)

At least they didn't threaten to sue because of an unpaid invoice for the last two years. They're clearly amateurs. ;)

Darwin at work. Anyone who falls for that is going to loose their money somewhere else.
