I’d like to express my gratitude to the scammers behind Presidential Who’s Who for sending me an e-mail today and thus giving me this opportunity to warn others about them. The e-mail below contains a link that supposedly leads to the web site of this “prestigious organization.” But the link takes you to a different site first – if you just type in the address yourself, you’ll find the site is a dud.
So be warned – like every other Who’s Who organization I’ve heard of thus far, this is a scam. Don’t fall for it!
Here’s the text of the message I received, which is presumably identical to that received by many others:
