World Wide Source has been calling my company trying to collect on something they are referring to as the American Business Index. Plain & simple...I have been down right rude and unapologetic letting these people in on the fact that I know they are running a scam and they are not getting a penny from my company. They will call and pick up on the names of whomever is answering the phone. After they try to get you to agree to pay for something that you've never even subscribed to or purchased, they will then send you an invoice with that persons name on it. On a larger scale I can see how they might get away with this type of scam but it's not working here.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

It's an old scam. It is usually done from a boiler room in Montreal, Quebec, but may also be done from Halifax, Nova Scotia. The "president" of this fraudulent "company" is 32 year old Pavlos Angelatos (or Pavlos Aggelatos, literally 'Paul Angel'), a Greek resident of Canada.

Last reports had Pavlos off in Nepal where he was fully funding (with our money) a Greek climbing team on Everest. He probably has been in Athens for the past month basking in the success of this venture and the Olympic Games.

The Plattsburgh address is just a mail drop.
Here is the real contact information:
This information was obtained from the Vermont Attorney Generals Office. These companies often change locations without notice, thus we cannot guarantee that the address will be good when you report or contact them,but this is what the AG has on file.
