London Schools Are Victim Of Yellow Pages Scam

Yellow Pages by metrostationGoing though my Google Reader I found a short article from Londonist outlining the scam. More detail can be found in this BBC News article.

Basically schools have been receiving and paying fake invoices for adverts placed in the Yellow Pages, though the bills were to pay Yellow Pages 24. The schools were requested to either send a cheque to a W1 London PO Box or off to Germany.
I thought it would be worth pointing out – though I haven’t worked in a school that pays out bills without checking the validity of the invoices they receive , this goes to show that you can never be too careful. If you receive an invoice for Yellow Pages and a little double checking would be worthwhile!
