I won an award!!
Got an email this evening from some company telling me my web development company had won an “American Economic Leadership Award.” Since my company is relatively small, I wondered how this organization had come upon my name, etc. There was a photo of a nice acrylic award with my company name etched in it so beautifully, and in order to accept my award, I merely had to click on a link to arrange shipment. That was the first indication that something was out of order. My radar was up immediately. Sure enough. I could “order” whatever award I preferred, for anywhere from $147 to $588, depending upon how many copies and certificates I wanted. Another scam busted!
