Beware of Fake "Best of Memphis" Awards

A company called Best Memphis Awards is sending out scamming emails to local businesses announcing that they've been named a "Best of Memphis" winner. The company runs similar scams in other cities under various names, i.e. "Seattle Best Awards," "Peoria Best Awards," etc.

For the record, "Best of Memphis" is a trademarked property of Contemporary Media and the Memphis Flyer. If your business gets a notice that you've won a Best of Memphis award from any source other than the Flyer, your "Best of Memphis" notification is bogus —  and the plastic plaque they are trying to sell you is a rip-off.

The Flyer is currently notifying legitimate winners of its Best of Memphis awards, which will be announced in the September 25th issue.
