Attorney General Bans Canadian Businesses

Posted: Updated:

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem issued Cease and Desist Orders against three Canadian companies after they were caught engaging in deceptive business practices.

YAPB, or better know as YAPD, Yellow Book and 411 were caught scamming businesses by creating fictitious invoices, websites or publications by using Yellow Page names and logos.

The Consumer Protection Division initiated the separate investigations after receiving complaints from businesses that had received invoices for phony Yellow Page listings or telephone calls from the banned companies attempting to collect payment for the supposed Yellow Page listings.

All three businesses are prohibited from conducting business in North Dakota.
