Yellow Pages Fax Scam emerges in Australia

It appears that thousands of Australian businesses are receiving faxes that look to be from Yellow Pages, but are actually for a competing (and possibly phony) directory.

This is not a new scam – a similar one was recently shut down in Australia – it unfortunately takes some customers by surprise.

The faxes being issued have the Yellow Pages logo, and look like they are from the Yellow Pages, but the people who sign up for the offer are often signing up for a directory with a different company.
