Age, This morning I received a phone message to my secretary
This morning I received a phone message to my secretary allegedly from Dunn and Bradstreet saying I had a copyright infringement on an image on my website that belonged to Getty images. (The website is at least five years old.) I rang, quoting the reference number, and an Indian gentleman answered (called Amit) and demanded I pay him over $1000 straight away. I protested I didn't have that sort of money and he offered a 20% discount as long as I paid straight away and gave him my credit card details. I said I couldn't afford that either and he asked what I could afford, then said if I gave him my CC details he could OK it with his supervisor. I refused saying I would get back to my website designer and see if it had already been paid. This Amit guy is supposedly going to email me an invoice. Is this a scam please? … read more
