I’ve been bugged a bit, what is the who’s who directory and is it really real?

Hello everyone, welcome to the puzzle of the day.

I’ve been getting a bunch of email telling me that I’ve gotten an entry in to the whos who directory.

According to this aarp article ‘Who’s Who’ Directory Scams with a subheading of With vanity publishers, fame and honors can cost you a small fortune, we do have something to worry about.

Many many years ago, I was asked about what this was, and the person in question didn’t even respond.

In the recent sample, they’re apparently emailing from a domain called hospitaltests.com and links to some redirect page at whoswhodirectory2021.com which makes it very interesting.

According to the article linked, there may be very legitimate directories published, but some may want to take as much as $900 just to get you published.

I’m curious on whether anyone has gotten picked, filled out the form and what their experience was? Read the article I’ve linked from AARP and let’s discuss.

I’ve reached out to someone to see if they’ve heard of this. When I hear back, I’ll be in touch with any updates.
