BBB: Yellow Pages scam is back
Business owners, watch out! Scammers are invoicing companies for online ads they never placed and using the Yellow Pages name to lend them credibility. A Waynesboro business owner contacted BBB serving Mississippi about an invoice they received for services that they did not receive or agree to.
“Unfortunately, some businesses just pay because they don’t want to ruin their credit,” said John O’Hara President/CEO of BBB serving Mississippi. “They use a well known name and create fake websites and invoices to trick people into paying for services they have never performed.”
