Another thing you will undoubtedly find while looking for a press pass is sites like this.

Another thing you will undoubtedly find while looking for a press pass is sites like this. Again as with all scam sites, we will not provide a link but you will almost assuredly see a link. All this site does is attempt to provide assurance to individuals looking for a press pass in some of the other sites you will come across. Why is that? This site is part of the same web of sites primarily run by the same people. It is meant to put you at ease about deciding on one of the other sites. It doesn't matter to them which one, because they are running 17 websites on the same servers in Germany. Hopefully people see this garbage for what it is!

We have to admit, we're confused by this one!

We have to admit, we're confused by this one! It is true that this website has been up for a long time. Recently the domain has slipped into an insecure status by not having an SSL. It is highly unusual for a reputable organization to risk potential security issues. The site claim is they are the oldest press organization in the country, however the website has only been online since 2003. Even with some older organizations, there is an online presence going back to the mid or late 90's.

This alone doesn't take away from the authenticity of the website but we urge people to visit the site knowing there could be potential security or privacy risks when entering information without the site having a valid SSL.

Another puzzling thing we found when using the site member search feature is how few members there seems to be. 

For the security reasons stated above, we will not provide a link to the website but a Google search would give you a result or link.

Yep, it's another one of those sites tied to the elaborate web of other so called "agencies".

We're not going to link to this one either, but if you go there you'll find pretty much the same layout as some of the other websites associated with this group. Pretty much the same layout along with the same German/English language choice.
