Bogus Site Location
Was advised to post this here by a Bing Customer Service Rep.
Recently while on Craigslist, came across for an ad for Virtual Assistants Needed. SEO company says:
"We are an SEO firm that primarily works to increase the market areas of our clients. One of the methods we use is to create expanded directory & social listings for our clients - we set up virtual locations for them in areas that they serve, but do not have a physical office. This is where you come in. We will use your address as a virtual office location & when we create Bing profiles (for example), they send out a pin number that you'd report to us to verify the location.
No customers will call or come to your location - the Bing listing will only show city & state (not a street address). You won't have to field calls, etc. You simply receive the postcard & call us. At the end of each month, you'll get paid the base amount + $10 for any other virtual assistant referrals you can make (there's no obligation to make referrals)."

So clearly this company is trying to use fraud to boast their client seo rankings on Bing.
If you come across a scammer like this, who does nothing but ruin search for the public with their bogus listings please report it here:
