Vanity Scam

What is Vanity Scam?


When your company has received an award from an organization you have never heard of (the U.S. Local Business Association is an example) that is clearly a deceptive marketing tactic similar to the phony domain name or Yellow Pages bills that are sent in hopes your AP department will pay them. Often the incentive (and allure) is a plaque or award certificate for "recognizing that <your company name> has been selected for the 2008 Best of <your town> Award."
