Just a little word of warning to anyone that receives an email from a company calling themselves “World Company Directory”. This looks very much like another scam we reported on recently, the European City Guide Scam. We received an email from worldcompanydirectory.com today, and the email went like this:

Madam/Sir.

In order to have your company inserted into the registry of World Company Directory for 2009/2010, please print, complete and return the enclosed form (PDF file) to the following address:

WORLD COMPANY DIRECTORY

100 Pall Mall – St. James
London SW1Y 5NQ
United Kingdom

email: register@worldcompanydirectory.com

FAX: ++44 207 321 3738

Updating is free of charge!

Please don’t even think about filling in this form and returning it. It’s a nasty attempt to get you to sign-up, unwillingly for an annual subscription charge of €980. The small print clearly states:

I HEREBY ORDER A SUBSCRIPTION WITH SERVICE PROVIDER WORLD COMPANY DIRECTORY LTD. I WILL HAVE AN
ENTRY INTO ITS DATABASE FOR THREE YEARS. THE PRICE PER YEAR IS EUR 980.

Avoid at all costs or pay the price!!!
