Virtual offices are so useful...

In one of the strangest press releases I’ve ever come across, according to The Successful Office Group which runs a New York-based answering service and call centre business hub, an 18-year-old high school student called Danny used their services to pretend he had a major business to impress women. According to the company’s CEO Michael Anthony: “He had himself as the CEO of his own made-up company, and would go to clubs handing out his business card bragging about how big he was or how rich. This impressed many women and they would check up on him by calling his company and asking about him, verifying salary and other info he told them…We all had a big laugh with Danny.” In the press release detailing the story , Anthony reveals other uses of the company’s services, including people using it to create fake financial histories to get credit cards or “do other illegal things”. Hmmm…
