Business owners in West Virginia are urged to be on the lookout for a scam targeting them.
WV Attorney General, Patrick Morrisey said businesses are getting fake invoices for allegedly being listed in telephone directories and social media.
The invoices, some of which are for thousands of dollars, are sent by American Yellow Group Inc.’s Outsourced Accounting Department with a return address of Varna, Bulgaria. The design of the invoice includes the familiar “walking fingers” logo, which makes it appear as though the business is being charged for its inclusion in a telephone book’s yellow pages. However businesses who have received the faxed invoice said they never contracted with the company for the service.
