Scam/Fraudulent Invoice
Posted by on 08/30/2011
We got an invoice in the mail for $2950 for advertising that we DID not do & nobody in our office approved. Also, there is no mention of anywhere we could see our supposed advertisement that we supposedly requested to even see it. We would never do this expensive of advertising. I searched the company on Google & found this site: http://www.yelp.com/biz/strategic-business-communications-new-york where other people had gotten similar invoices for similar services. I feel strongly that this is a scam.

I looked up online the "Natural Resources & Mining Business Development Directory (2012 Edition)" that the add is supposed to be in - and I can find no such directory online.

Our companies (3 in total) just received this same invoice only for 3,495 USD. Tried to call for explanation but noone is at any extension. This comment is all that came up when I tried to google the directory we supposedly advertised in. SCAM.

Our company also just received an invoice for $3,495 and when I e-mailed them to get the back-up for the ad, their reply was "Our apologies - this invoice was of a number invoices that were erroneously issued due to a clerical error. This has now been corrected and the invoice has been voided, and I can of course confirm that no payment is due to us. Apologies again for any inconvenience caused."

I got one today for $3499. Totally fake, I am the only one that authorizes ad spends. Thankfully my accounting department brought it to me before paying!
