Designed to Deceive

This fake bill shows up from a business newspaper. No letter, no explanation.

Its only purpose is to trick the recipient into thinking that it’s a legitimate bill and accidentally paying it. It’s a simple con to make secretaries think that their bosses must have subscribed and then process the payment.

Forget the fine print claiming that this isn’t a bill. There is no doubt that deception is the goal. If you need the fine print to explain that something isn’t deceptive — it’s deceptive.

Too bad the editors of this fine newspaper don’t bust their own marketing department for such sleazery.

What do you think?
