Further to my earlier post on fax spam I got an even better one today, purporting to be from Jennifer Collins, Editor of Who’s Who Among Executives, Professionals, and Entrepreneurs in Australia.
We are pleased to inform you that you and your business have been selected to be included in the 2009/2010 Edition of Who’s Who Among Executives, Professionals, and Entrepreneurs in Australia.
The director thinks you may make an interesting biographical subject as achievement is what Who’s Who is all about.
Well, doesn’t that make me feel important? Although hang on, if I’m so interesting why don’t they know my name and details already? They’re freely available.
It’s a scam of course (not related to the real Who’s Who publications). A quick Google finds lots of others have got this or a variant of it. Apparently if you get back to them you can get a ‘gold’ or ‘platinum’ listing for only $500 or so. Or at the least your details on a list for distribution to more spammers.
Full scan of fax is included below.
