Emerald Who’s Who Scam – Part II, Free Ebook For Blog Review

0

Posted by Mr Spamalicious | Posted in Vanity Spam - Who's Who Directories, Awards and Other Ego Strokers | Posted on 02-09-2012

Another spin on the Emerald Who’s Who Scam. This time they are pitching themselves as a business resource with a their own blog and everything.  Plus I can get a “free” ebook in exchange for a review of their organization on my blog. Well, I don’t think this was the blog they were talking about but fuck’em. So here’s my review ( my comments are in red)

Butler Clay,

(we have no idea who you are we just pulled this from the who’s is database or bought an email list)

As all business professionals we like to begin the new year with a clean slate and start doing things right, from the beginning. This is why I am  writing to you, to begin thinking about setting up for 2012. (When I say “I” and “writing” I mean our automated database churned out this email and auto inserted your name and a keyword or two off your website). We are a global online publishing and professionals networking organization (vanity publication run from a call center) for personal and business branding (ego stroking). We seek out individuals (Desperate individuals seeking validation from strangers) and organizations to represent the elite in the global business community (Not really, we just think that phrase sounds important. Basically, just give us money and we’ll print your name in a book that goes out to everyone else who paid to be in it. That’s it, that’s our only criteria. Money), and now we are looking for new professionals to work with in 2012!

We want to introduce you to our organization Emerald Who’s Who for Executives and Professionals, Inc. by offering you our complementary E-Book “How to Protect Your Business Reputation Online” in exchange for your review of our blog site, www.emeraldwhoswhonews.com (Here’s your review mother fucker!)

Based on information we were able to obtain, your association with, as in Capitola, CA perhaps will make you an ideal addition to the network for both the members and yourself. (Oops, our software sometimes fucks up the sentences. We have no idea what we mean by what was just written by our robots but our program bolded it as an important keyword you are supposed to notice.) After all it is who you know more so that what you know these days.

Please note, we will need your submission by February 13th. (Not really true. We’ll take your money anytime but we just want to create a sense of urgency) We wish you success in all your future endeavors, and look forward to including you and your business as part of our elite global professional networking organization.

With kind regards,

Anthony Miller

    International Who’s Who Historical Society Scam

    4

    Posted by Mr Spamalicious | Posted in Vanity Spam - Who's Who Directories, Awards and Other Ego Strokers | Posted on 08-30-2011

    For the last year I’ve just been picking up the same old nomination announcements from the same old Who’s Who vanity directories. Boooring! But finally we have a new “playa” – The International Who’s Who Historical Society! Impressive isn’t it. Unlike most Who’s Who scams they’ve taken the time to eloquently explain what utter bullshit they are, that is if you know how to read between the lines. The best part? The book isn’t available publicly to protect member from being put on mailing lists! How rich! Fucking spammers.

    Some of the highlights from their FAQ’s page. I’ve provided some clarification in (red parentheses).

    Can I find your book/publication in my library or bookstore?
    Our directories are strictly proprietary, for our member’s use only. We do not allow them to be in any library other than the Library of Congress. We do this to protect our members from being put on mailing lists and getting unsolicited phone calls.

    (We don’t print this shit for free. It’s a vanity publication you dumb fuck. You pay to play.)

    How did you get my name?
    Your name was submitted to our organization in one of two ways. Our research staff may have chosen you as one of the best possible candidates by researching trade journals, business publications, and organizations like Dun & Bradstreet. We also send nomination forms to all of our members in their membership packages so they are provided with the opportunity to nominate anyone they feel would benefit from membership. We do not, however, keep any records as to the source of the nomination in an effort to avoid embarrassment to the candidate or nominating member in the event of a rejection of an application.

    (We purchase email lists from shady Russians who have bots that scrape your emails off various publicly available sources. That why you’ll often receive multiple nominations, even to the email address you only use for PayPal. )

    I have received this nomination letter and abbreviated biographical data form. What does it mean?
    The letter you have received means that you have been referred to us as a potential candidate for inclusion in one of our professional business directories. The abbreviated biographical data form is an application to determine if you are eligible for inclusion. Upon receipt of your data form, our selection committee will review your application and if you are qualified for inclusion, we will contact you.

    (It means we have your email address. We send millions of these out. We have no idea who the fuck you really are and we don’t care. Just sign up and pay us for the fucking book.)

    Do I have to buy anything?
    No, there is no cost or obligation for a free listing in our directory. Membership is completely voluntary. If you are accepted, you will be contacted regarding the outcome and given an opportunity to purchase the directory. Everyone who successfully completes the one-to-one interview with a Membership Selection Committee representative will be listed in the publication in our nonmember section.

    (No, but if you don’t we’ll punish you by putting you name in super tiny print in the back of the book in our “non-members” section with all the other cheap bastards. This technically allows us to deny that this is a vanity publication.)

    How much does the directory cost?
    If you are interested in the directory, we have various publication programs depending on the membership package you select.

    ( The more you pay, the bigger your name bitch!)

    Are you affiliated with any other Who’s Who?
    Our publications are compiled and published by the International WHO’S WHO Historical Society. The titles currently compiled by our company include: International WHO’S WHO of Professionals; International WHO’S WHO of Professional Management; International WHO’S WHO of Entrepreneurs; International WHO’S WHO of Information Technology; International WHO’S WHO of Professional Educators WHO’S WHO of Professional Educators; International WHO’S WHO of Public Service; WHO’S WHO in California… We are not affiliated with any other Who’s Who organizations or titles.

    (Fuck, better to ask what we DON’T publish. We use the shotgun approach. We discovered that there are desperate suckers seeking validation in a wide variety of professions.)

    Oh and check it out. If you use the opt out email link, they expect you to fill in your email address! What total shits. Fuck them.

    Here’s the deal. “Updating” may be free but the directory is not. In the tiniest of fine print they casually mention this will cost you 980 British Pounds per year! Worse yet, it’s a three year contract.  If you’ve filled this out already and sent it in and then they start harassing you for payment, blow them off. They are crooks so expect some threats but they will never follow through because they are crooks and know they are operating unethically if not flat out illegally. Here’s the PDF file they send with the email.

    Dear Madam/Sir,
