Scam Description

The email offered what I suspect was a vanity award. It said my business had received the annual “New York Award” in the category of Meditation center (this is the category visible on my business page on Google). I could not confirm the existence of such an award. Furthermore, mine is a small, low-profile business; it’s unlikely it would have received a city-wide award. The email asked me to click on a link to learn more about the award. I did not do so, but I suspect that the website would have offered me the award for a fee.
