Have you heard of reverse billing? Have you ever gotten a call from someone asking you to confirm your information for a listing in a directory?
This scam is nothing new, but there seems to be a resurgence lately!
My colleague, Stef from The Social Host, posted on Facebook:
“WARNING: To small businesses and employees – these stupid directory scams are BACK. I received 2 calls from 411businessmedia.com today. DO NOT give them your info, DO NOT pay their invoices – their services are fake. Report them to the FTC (if in the US), RCMP, Police, BBB, etc. Threaten legal action and maybe you’ll never hear from them again.”
I thought it was sage advice, and thought it was good enough to pass along.
