European Business Register [EBR] / Online Scam Forgery
The EU Business Register is a semi-existent database of EU companies.
When I tried to visit it at the time that I wrote this, on
http://www.eubusinessregister.com/ I could not do so because I was
blocked from accessing it by my antivirus software!
The people behind this ask businesses to enter their information in the
"EU Business Register" with the slogan "Updating is free!". What they
don't make obvious is that hidden in the small print (or near-invisible
print) is an agreement to sign up for 3 years entries in the "register"
at a rate of EUR 995 per year.
Anyone signing up to this "agreement" will soon find themselves being
pursued by a "debt-collection agency" for payment of the first
instalment of EUR 995, with a threat of having their credit rating
damaged and having legal action taken if they fail to pay up. They
basically bully people who have unwittingly signed up into paying.
As you can see from attempt to access their "directory" above, there
is ABSOLUTELY NO VALUE IN BEING LISTED IN THE EU BUSINESS DIRECTORY.
Today I received an email from the scammers with an attached PDF form
for filling in - they ask that this be signed and faxed and mailed to
them... this is important as they will then claim that this is a legally
binding, signed contract.
