Factoring awards – what a sham

I have just received an email stating that “As per our email two weeks ago we are pleased to write that we have received a nomination in your name in the Banking category of the 2012 Acquisition International M&A Awards.”

Normally one would be proud to be the recipient of such a nomination except that in this particular case the email was addresssed to a non existent person at a non existent company as it’s a spare email address that I have for anti spam purposes but which I’ve never actually used.

The email asks me to confirm that I’m happy to be shortlisted for this prestigious award so perhaps I should tell them that I am honoured and then ask you all to vote for me/him ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I’ve now received an email in my own name telling me that I’ve also been nominated in the banking category too. This is probably the biggest list of nominations in history as I guess that every person that they have found an email address for has been nominated ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. The nominations are now up on the website and there seems to be 1,554 companies nominated for an award and I regret to say that neither of my two fictitious names or my real one have been nominated for an award.

    I’m sure that it’s got nothing to do with my lack of response to the three emails asking me/us if we wished to advertise in the Awards Special Edition ๐Ÿ™‚
