Beware of Local Business Scam: UK Corporate Portal
We have been made aware of the reincarnation of the "UK Corporate Portal" letter which was also sent in 2013 and earlier this year.
The "UK Corporate Portal" letter is part of a mail-shot which has sent by a German company and is headed "Publication of companies and VAT Registration Numbers in the UK Corporate Portal 2015".
The letter appears to be from an official source, which is not the case. If you sign and return the form to confirm their details, you could end up tied in to the high costs of an entry in this publication.
Anyone who receives this letter should be aware that they are not obliged to provide any information to the company, and entries do not have to appear on the website referred to in the letter. Please be alert and read the small print carefully before agreeing to anything.
Contact your Local Trading Standards or the Police if you think you have been the victim of a crime.
