I received a letter in the mail which appeared to be a scam. I researched the address and found this to a be a bait-and-switch operation. For further findings please look at the other "Enterprise Who's Who.com" on ripoffreport.com. The reason for my post is to get this 'Letter' online because this appears to be a new tactic from a company who has been scamming people for years.
My thoughts on how this particular scam works: You call the number, give your RSVP code to a person or computer and your information shows up. That information would include your Name and Address and anything else they may have. They ask you to verify this is the correct address and when you "confirm," they claim you just confirmed for one of their services or products.
You go to the dinner and listen to a speaker, or there is no dinner at all. I recieved the letter only a day or two before the dinners so that you have less time to consider and call immediately. You then get an invoice in the mail for sum amount of money.
This is similar to how this company has worked in the past but this is a new technique, with sending a letter and having a dinner. I am not sure exactly how this will operate with the dinners and guest speaker. I hope nobody out there has already been duped. If so, enlighten us on how this particular operation works.
The letter reads:
