When your company has received an award from an organization you have never heard of (the U.S. Local Business Association is an example) that is clearly a deceptive marketing tactic similar to the phony domain name or Yellow Pages bills that are sent in hopes your AP department will pay them. Often the incentive (and allure) is a plaque or award certificate for "recognizing that <your company name> has been selected for the 2008 Best of <your town> Award."
