Picking a Reputable Who’s Who Registry Friday, Aug 22 2008 

While there are many legitimate professional and biographical directories, like Madison Who’s Who, there are also some unscrupulous individuals have created Who’s Who scams that involve the selling of “memberships” in Who’s Who directories that are created online and through instant publishing services.

These are sometimes thinly veiled scams designed to get individuals to part with their money and NOT an exclusive directory like a legitimate Who’s Who published by professional directories like Madison Who’s Who, which have an elaborate selection process.

Often the companies that “own” these registries are recently incorporated and the few individuals listed in them (who often post that on their web sites) are people who are being listed in the directory as a marketing tactic.  Therefore, the publication of their names in these directories is just a form of vanity publishing, and doesn’t really accomplish the professional networking that these directories were intended for.

Often blogs or forum posts that discuss these scams have entries by someone who is stating that they used the directory to make valuable business contacts, but these posts cannot be verified and are like other online reviews that provide no verification of the consumer or user’s identity. 

If you want to benefit from all of the opportunities provided by professional directories, it’s important to choose a directory that is reputable, such as our directory at Madison Who’s Who.
