Buying a “Best in Business” award?

You can call me Ray, or you can call me Jay, or you can call me Johnny or you can call me Sonny, or you can call me RayJay, or you can call me RJ… but ya doesn’t hafta call me Johnson.

That’s a great line from the comedian Bill Saluga in the 1970s… but in this case, it would be “Don’t call me Jay.” My company, Camden Associates, has never hired or given an email address to anyone named Jay Weinberg, or any Jay at all.

Not sure if you’d call this a scam, but buying a “Best of Business” award is pretty slimy. Here’s the full email:
