Happy Friday!
Have you received a call from a company called Infomatika? They call
informing you that they have a free directory to give out. Don't fall for
it! When it arrives they try to charge you $300+ for having your library
listed. The trick is that they ask for your mailing address (so that they
know where to send the FREE directory) and then you get this bill for being
included. Bad business indeed!
