Scam Target: The Global Directory of Who's Who

Wow, I've gone from being an obscure small-company software developer to being one of the most recognized people on the planet!

John Franklin, no title given, from The Global Directory of Who's Who sent me a message in which he said: "It is my pleasure to inform you that on August 13th, 2009 your information was reviewed and accepted for inclusion in the 2009/2010 edition of our registry."

The criteria for inclusion seem remarkably vague: "This recognition is shared by those who have reached a distinguished level of success in their chosen profession." If my "information was reviewed" I would think they'd know what my "chosen profession" is.

"Chosen Profession" sounds like a Charles Spurgeon tract.

Anyhow, I think it's great that I am finally getting some recognition for my distinguished level of success in my chosen profession. But I encourage anyone reading this to look at my previous blog entries and realize what a scam this is.
