TOPEKA – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today warned consumers to be on the lookout for fake invoices for services or products not ordered. They are likely being generated from disreputable companies perpetrating fraud.
The attorney genral’s office has received more than 150 complaints from school districts and other entities across the state about fraudulent invoices being sent from an organization doing business as American Yellow Group, Inc., American Yellow Corporation, Inc., and American Yellow Distribution, Inc.
The invoices are purportedly for “directory listing” and demand $496.95 for a one-year listing or $685.95 for a two-year listing. The geographical origin of the invoices include San Diego, Calif., Dallas, Texas, New York, N.Y., and Varna, Bulgaria.
