Made to look like an invoice for a service you already have, Yellow PagesUSA (Yellow Pages USA ) has been scamming people for years. If you get this, you don’t really have a listing with them to renew, and you wouldn’t want to if you did. Desperate attempt to make you think they are the same company that distributes the big yellow book to your house. Expensive and useless. Avoid at costs. I also recommend not paying for any internet “yellow” listing regardless of the company. The business model is a dinosaur that is dying off fast. It was barely relevant ten years ago and even less so now. Promote your business through a Google Places listing, a Yelp! business profile, Facebook page, Craigslist or your own website instead. Here’s the PDF invoice they send out.
Please verify your ACTUAL LISTING by printing and completing the attached form.
