Who's Who Among Executives and Professionals - scam spam untrustworthy company

This spam is a scam. They have lied in this email as to how they found our email address. They sent this spam to an unpublished email address which was harvested from a form in one of our web sites.

Do not trust this company or do business with them as they give false information in this email. If there is false information in this email which also has inaccurate information what value could their book or listing have?


Seems like a clever way to build a database for spammers!

I got one of these today, only it was for the 'who's who among north american women' or something. I knew it was a fake immediately because how is an unemployed, recently discharged disabled veteran with an associates degree in Video an industry leader?
Got a kick out of it nonetheless. Maybe I'll print it and send it home to mom.

Now there is a register name that tells a story :-)

The big huge clue that this is a scam is the total and complete lack of personalization. I am a candidate for there prestigious publication and they don't even know my name Doh !

Here is a translation for the Hard of thinking.
"Oy you - give us all your personal data so that we can contact you and ask for more."

I am a member of Montclair Who's Who and I assure you it is no scam. It is a great print directory of various fields of professionals who have achieved certain levels of expertise in their fields. There are however many other companies that produce who's who books but this one has been around for many years and prior to joining I did research the company

If you Google the phone number provided by Montclair Who's Who from their website - it gives you an address in Yonker's New York - same place as your IP address. If it's such a great publication, then whay are "All Sales Final" and why don't they show you a sample entry on their website.

I spent 5 minutes on the phone talking to a complete stranger - so she could "fill in the gaps on my bio to make the determination if I derserved mention in their book" - . Armed with the hyperbole I shoveled at her and her intuitive sense in the obvious honesty of my character she was able to garner during those 5 minutes, she proudly offered me Congratulations and commended me on this most honored achievement. Her keen sense of intellect and glowing purity of my character left no doubt in her mind that there was no possible way I could have made any of my biography up - and obviously, I really am as great as I told her I was. In fact, probably even greater - because I could now get a Platinum Membership. Fact checkers and Reference Validations be damned. Afterall, what is a biography really but nothing more than a glorified resumé. Lying on a resume - that's just outrageous - nobody would ever do something so sinister and underhanded. Maybe on your taxes - but a resume - NEVER>

I'll have to be content now with my less formidable listing that has now been down-graded to a BASIC entry.

Steven said...

They will try to lure you to choose from three levels --book for one year, gold plan of five years, and a platinum life-time membership. You are offered a voucher for "free" airplane tickets to one of various resorts if you go gold or platinum. Beware -- others have stated that there are fees for the tickets and the resorts cost a lot. The "voucher" is a mere postcard that you are supposed to send in 60 days prior to when you want to go on vacation and before the voucher expiration date of 1.5 years from date of sale; no information on the resorts is provided with the "voucher". By the time you send in the "voucher" it is too late -- you have been had. The book is worthless as a serious reference as it is not for sale to libraries, the public, etc. -- try to find a copy on Amazon, for example. Members can put anything they want in their entries, whether true or not. Of course, some will sucked in by the original e-mail from them that offers a free listing. When they call you on the phone, after you respond to their e-mail, they interview you to make you feel like your lucky to qualify, then they try to get just as much from as as possible through clever sales techniques and misrepresentations to sell you up.

Here's my recent version of the email,
I received the same form last time a year back.


Candidate,


As you know, you have been considered for inclusion in the upcoming 2011 Edition of the Academic Registry. Despite our efforts to contact you, we have still not received your contact information.

Inclusion in the publication is considered by many as a signal mark of achievement.

To be included in this prestigious publication, you need only provide the requested information by completing our online biographical data form. Please Click Here (http://mail-server3.executivedirectoryonline.net/t/l?1xv-hwoz-1-h9r6-6sp57) to access your form.

The information you provide will be evaluated according to the selection standards the Academic Registry has developed over many years as the world's premier biographical publisher.

I congratulate you on the achievements that have brought your name to the attention of our editorial committee. We look forward to hearing from you.

OMG! I got the exact same e-mail, word for word as "Aabhash", from Eric Johnson. The link was different, it was : http://academicregistry2011.info/?c=bedu921

When I clicked the link it took me to a single page website which just asked for my name, phone no., e-mail address and country. There was no other link on the page, hardly what you would expect from a legitimate directory website. I guess the next step would have been that they would call me and then say I need to pay. In fairness the webpage said "There is neither cost nor obligation associated with your basic membership" .... I made "basic" bold for emphasis. I guess they would call and say they are offering me Gold or Platinum membership to demand the money. To be noted in all this is that I am just a graduate student, and have yet to make any accomplishments in my career, so I am no way outstanding. They did get the name right in the e-mail, but that's not surprising since University e-mail IDs often have the name embedded in them, basically my e-mail ID is the same as my name. What's funny is that they know I am exceptional, but all they need to know about me is my name and phone no. to verify that.

Anonymous said...

I get these emails at LEAST once a week. All of the links (except the email link to the "editor") go to this domain: halomarketingagency.bmdeda7.com
The editor email goes to editor@montclairpublishing.net

The final sentence says: "If you are interested in being a part of our national publication, spend thirty seconds filling out your basic application by pressing the button below."

Really? Just 30 seconds to determine that I am a legitimate and "accomplished" professional? How about telling me in the email what makes ME so accomplished? I'm an adjunct faculty (not my day job in other words), and this "publication" is for faculty. I am hardly an accomplished faculty.

I am glad I read this blog. I stupidly e-mailed in that registration form for "Who's Who among America's Executives and Professionals" because it said it was free. I should have known better when I saw the last sentence telling me that an "account executive" would contact me within 7 days to verify my information. Now, my e-mail address is going to be sent to every spammer in the universe.
The good news is that I will be prepared to tell the "account executive" where to put his "Who's Who!" Thanks for the enlightenment!

Hey everyone - I got a final reminder about listing myself. Silly me, since I deleted so many spam emails over the Festive Season, thought "oh heck - I did deleted their emails" and completed my details! So I can be ready for spam galore the following few months!
I have my own business and things really started happening for me the last year, so naive little me thought "wow, they love me, they really really love me". NOT.
I hope the fleas of a thousand camels invade their underwear!

I used to work there and made some sales but once I learned of their unethical practices, I stopped making sales. Needless to say, my tenure there was not very long but, I got a base salary.

Jeff Finder is interested in one thing only: MONEY!

His editorial department is nothing more than some friends he has hired to spam unsuspecting professionals.

They use special software that collects names and other contact info from university web sites, law office web sites, real estate web sites, etc...

There is a whole script we were given to deal with skeptical customers. If anyone asked, "who recommended me to your committee?" we were supposed to tell them that that was confidential or that our editorial committee selected them based on their superb background.

Morale there was low but, he has since hired some new "gung-ho" reps to do his dirty work. I was relieved when I was let go.

For my protection, I used a false name in the work I perform. I received an email from "who's who amount Executives and Professionals" wanting more information about me. Isn't it strange the email was sent to a false name and not my real name? They really are a scam and I would not trust them!

G said...

I wish these guys would give up. I get this email several times a week, and have been getting it for like a half a year or more now. They keep changing email addresses and website addresses but its the same message over and over again. A lot of the time it even has the same subject line, usually something about final notice. If its my final notice why don't they stop emailing after my not responding to any of their other final notices. This is just ridiculous.

Skunkfeathers said...

I received one of these recently, and knowing it for what it was, filled it out with bogus info, EXCEPT for my telephone number. Got a 'research and verification' call a few days later. Which I conducted in my faux redneck accent. A few minutes into the conversation, my 'character' name finally dawned on the 'researcher', and he finally hung up on me.

Funny...with a name like Jack N. Ewehoff, you'd think they'd want me IN their publication ;-)

I getting these e-mails. I made a mistake to respond to this few years ago and these people called back, and when I heard how much I have to pay (don't remember the amount) I did not not give any bank/credit card information. I get them in several e-mail boxes (I have at least 6+ e-mail addresses).

I feel if you paid their fees, they might published a teen flipping burgers as someone who is Executives and Professionals.

It looks like Montclair may be using another domain now researchsocial.net. I fell for one of their traps a few years ago. I thought from their email logo they were Marquis Publishing, the publisher of the original Who's Who series, but unlike Montclair, Marquis doesn't charge for you to be included in their publications and doesn't hassle you over the phone.

Wow, I've only gotten one email like this. I feel let down. I was soooo flattered by their email that starts like this...

You have recently been selected as a candidate to represent your professional

Professionals.

Your candidacy for membership was officially approved July 19th, 2011. You have
been selected based upon your professional experience and achievements, and as
such, we believe that your profile makes a fitting addition to our publication.

...since part of the reason I was "selected" are my achievements, I guess being unemployed for almost 2 years is big on their list. Gosh I'm so proud that that makes me a fitting addition to their publication.

If that wasn’t reason enough to know instantly that this was bogus, they addressed me as my email address begins (IE: John.Public@XXX.com) so the salutation reads “Hello john.public”. I guess I should be flattered since other writers above note that their names weren’t even mentioned in their letters. I’m guessing “Hello jqp345” wouldn’t look so good as a salutation. Looks like they at least have a Quality Control guy in their group of slimy friends although he must be a lazy SOB to let mine pass the quality test. If nothing else it was good for a laugh. Hey, I found this site because of it, and I did get a chuckle out of many of the previous posts – particularly Mr. Ewehoff in June. Very nice Skunkfeathers. A tip of the hat to you.
