I received another great scam email this afternoon. This time, the International Association of Business Leaders has added me to their distinguished list. This one doesn’t seem to have been picked up on as much as the Executive Who’s Who and Princeton Premier:
You were recently chosen to represent your profession in the 2010 Hardcover Edition of International Association of Business Leaders.
We are please to inform you that your candidacy was formally approved March 8th, 2010.
The IABL Worldwide Publishing Committee selected you as a potential candidate based not only upon your current employment, but focusing as well on criteria from executive and professional directories, associations, and trade journals. Given your professional background, the Editorial Department believes your profile makes a fitting addition to our publication.
There is no fee nor obligation to be listed. As we are working off of secondary sources, we must receive verification from you that your profile is accurate. After receiving verification, we will validate your registry listing within 7 business days.
Once finalized, your listing will share prominent registry space with thousands of fellow accomplished individuals across the globe, each representing accomplishment within their own geographical area.
To verify your profile and accept the candidacy, please visit here <removed>. Our registration deadline for this year’s candidates is April 30th, 2010. To ensure you are included, we must receive your verification on or before this date. On behalf of our Committee, I salute your achievement and welcome you to our association.

You can see the very similar language to the other scam emails.This times the “unsubscribe” links go to “seriouswebhostingplace.com” – a whois search shows that the domain was created on 7 Jan 2010, a clear scam indicator. After all, wouldn’t one expect a reputable business registry to have been around a tad longer than 3 months?
