Bogus Invoice for Web Site Listing Service from ListingCorp.com

Here's the latest sleaze job I've been exposed to: An official-looking invoice for "Annual Website Search Engine Listing" at $47.50 a year.

It comes with a due date and a payment envelope with a note on the back: "Please include your remittance stub."

To be fair, the invoice says on its face that I am under no obligation to pay the amount unless I accept the offer in the solicitation outlined on the back of the invoice.

The offer comes from Listingcorp.com, supposedly located in NY. It appears to be a search engine optimization service.

The invoice and envelope push as hard as they can to get an e-mail address. Cheaper than mailing bogus invoices, I suppose.
