Hi:

I received the email pasted below indicating I am an award recipient. However, the award ceremony dinner was March 12th, the day before I got this letter. They also seem to be selling plaques with your logo on it.

Am I right in assuming this is a hoax?
It came from this email address: info@businessaeardsdecision.net
Janet,

First, I would like to congratulate you on your selection as a 2020 Best of Bedford Award Winner. We switched to a new software system for this year’s award notifications and there have been some database problems. The category you were selected in should have been “Holistic Education Advocacy”. I apologize for the mistake. Our system has been updated and you can now view the corrected award.

The Best of Bedford Award Program was created to honor and generate public recognition of the achievements and positive contributions of businesses and organizations in and around Bedford. Our mission is to raise the profile of exemplary companies and entrepreneurs among the press, the business community, and the general public. The selection process does not include nominations, voting, contests or surveys. The Award Program uses only empirical data supplied by independent third-parties as input into our award algorithm. It is not a requirement, but is your option, to have us send you one of the 2020 Awards that have been designed for display at your place of business.

Selection as a 2020 Award Winner is determined by the marketing success of your organization in your local community and business category. The Best of Bedford Award Program uses information gathered internally in conjunction with third-party data as a part of its selection process. Unfortunately I cannot go into the specifics of the data we use in our selection process. We have non-disclosure agreements with the companies that provide us the data. I’m sorry; I wish I could give you more details. Notification to other award winners in Bedford will be made over the next several weeks. After all award recipients have been notified, we will post the complete list of winners on our website.

In addition to displaying the award at your place of business, most organizations incorporate their selection into their marketing materials. Studies show that customers are strongly influenced by third-party validations. In addition, we will post your organization on our website as a 2020 Award Winner and link back to your website; allowing new customers to find you. As an Award recipient, there is no membership requirement. We simply ask each award recipient to pay for the cost of their awards. The revenue generated by the Best of Bedford Award Program helps to pay for operational support, marketing and partnership programs for local businesses.

There are various award types, sizes and shipping options and we can create a digital image of your award during the production process at no extra charge. Simply click on the link below and follow the instructions for pricing and to receive your award:
2020 Best of Bedford Award – Holistic Education Advocacy

Sincerely,

Leslie Holland
Review Committee

P.S. Changes and edits to your Organization Name, Organization Category or City may be made on the order page prior to submitting your order.
