“Proudly not pay-to-play, we invite all of this years’ recipients to share their success through a complementary digital certificate and copyright to the title.” So claims the award letter.

We received this email to our corporate info@ address last week. Can you smell the scam? Interestingly, the signature block is a graphic, probably to elude spam filters. The company is AI Global Media, who did not reply when we wrote to “Chelsea” with questions. But then again, given they “spent recent months examining the achievements of thousands of business leaders and looking at the contributions they have made to their companies, as well as their accomplishments over the course of the previous year,” and picked as their sole Arizona winner a small tech consulting firm which serves about a dozen clients…. what would you expect?

From: Chelsea Dytham

Subj: Carole, you are our Female CEO of the Year 2018 – Arizona

Hello Carole,

Your hard work and innovative approach has been recognised! We are delighted to announce that you are a recipient within AI’s annual CEO of the Year Awards. You have been awarded the title of:

Female CEO of the Year 2018 – Arizona

The CEO awards were founded to identify and recognise the outstanding leadership of CEOs across all industries and jurisdictions and will be commending just one CEO from each region and each sector. We have spent recent months examining the achievements of thousands of business leaders and looking at the contributions they have made to their companies, as well as their accomplishments over the course of the previous year.

In terms of determining those most deserving of this coveted accolade, we take into consideration significant achievements from the past calendar year, other accolades won, length of service, company performance since you took position at the helm (or since day one for those who have founded their businesses), as well as client testimonials and recommendations.

Proudly not pay-to-play, we invite all of this years’ recipients to share their success through a complementary digital certificate and copyright to the title.
