BBB warns of phony directory invoice scam

(WTVM) - The Better Business Bureau is warning area businesses about receiving phony directory invoices by fax.

The notices state either "collection warning" or "last chance to protect your credit score in good standing."

The invoice claims to be related to Directory listings by American Yellow Group, Inc.

However, the BBB emphasizes that those invoices are fake.

One of the red flags on the invoices states "Send check to address to Bulgaria. Varna, Vinitsa 9002, PO Box 83." There is even a reminder to include international postage.

The BBB reminds busy business owners to be careful of Directory Scams, and other questionable invoices.

Please be sure to make your accounting department aware of this phony invoice scam.

If you encounter a scam or fraudulent activities, report it via BBB's Scam Tracker so they may investigate further and inform others of the situation.
