Innovation Award in Web Design 2019
UK Enterprise Awards and SME-News Scam
While you may expect this to be a post saying how awesome we are to win an award this early on – I think this award is terrible! Wow – bet you didn’t expect that did you!
Over the course of this year, I’m going to tackle lots of different internet scams and this one is definitely going to be on the list! I have 6 examples of this company contacting businesses that never entered the awards and saying they’ve won. Congratulations – what did you win..? The opportunity to buy a trophy at an overly inflated price and to advertise in a publication that exists only on their website!
Don’t just take my word for it – last year the Advertising Standards Authority investigated SME-News’ parent company AI Global Media for sending out this exact email and ruled against them. Did that stop AI Global Media – nope, they just rebranded and are at it again: Read the report
So if you get one of these emails – don’t be disheartened. You probably still deserve an award and you will win them, but don’t waste your money on this “publication” and it’s fake awards scam.
