Yellow Pages Scam Affecting The Nation
Businesses across the country are receiving what appear to be invoices for ad space in the Yellow Pages directories. Some of these "invoices" are actually solicitations for listings in alternative business directories that differ from the well-known Yellow Pages. These alternative directories often are not published at all. Businesses are being deceived into paying for what they incorrectly believe to be their usual Yellow Pages ad.
The familiar "walking fingers" logo and the name "Yellow Pages" are not protected by any federal trademark registration or copyright. Therefore, you may be led to believe that anyone who uses the logo and the name is affiliated with the publisher that distributes the telephone books and Yellow Pages directories to all households and businesses in a particular geographic area. There is no connection between publishers of alternative directories and those of the well-known Yellow Pages.
Alternative directories differ significantly from the traditional Yellow Pages directories primarily because of distribution. Alternative business directories generally are not available or distributed to the public. Therefore, they provide little, if any, benefit to businesses who pay to advertise in them.
The solicitation from an alternative business directory may have the appearance of an invoice. It may bear the "walking fingers" logo and feature the name "Yellow Pages." It also may falsely suggest that the publisher is affiliated with your local telephone company or with another bona fide Yellow Pages publisher you recognize. The solicitation may lead you to believe that your business already has been listed in the telephone directory and you are now being billed when, in fact, you are only being solicited for placing an ad.
Typical language used on the ad solicitations, such as "present listing information;" "prompt payment is necessary to guarantee ad placement in the directory;" "renewal payment stub;" and "directory listing renewal invoice" also may appear on Yellow Pages invoices. This adds to the confusion.
Please examine the piece of mail you have received and determine whether it is a solicitation or an invoice. If it is a solicitation, you should see a disclaimer required by the U.S. Postal Service. It states, THIS IS NOT A BILL. THIS IS A SOLICITATION. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PAY THE AMOUNT STATED ABOVE UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THIS OFFER. But whether you see this solicitation disclaimer or not, be wary.
If you believe you have been the victim of this misrepresentation scheme, contact your Postmaster or local Postal Inspector. Look in your telephone directory under "U.S. Government, Postal Service U.S." for local listings. If there is no listing, write: Chief Postal Inspector, United States Postal Service, Washington, D.C. 20260-2100, or call (202) 268-4267.
You also may direct questions about Yellow Pages directory publishers to the Yellow Pages Publishers Association (YPPA), a private trade association representing Yellow Pages publishers throughout the United States. Write:
Yellow Pages Integrated Media Association
820 Kirts Blvd., Suite 100
Troy, MI 48084-4836
