Internet Register Ireland Scam

Internet Register Ireland ScamHere’s another of those Internet Directory scams that is doing the rounds a lot lately.

The Internet Register Ireland is very similar to the European City Guide scam, it looks a little more legit in that it has an Irish phone number to fax the registration form to.

Whatever you do, don’t even think about returning this form. If you do, expect a bill of €958 every year for absolutely nothing (well you may get a link in a useless web directory).

You’ve been warned!

World Company Directory Scam

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!!!

European City Guide Scam

European City GuideI just wanted to alert everyone about the European City Guide scam doing the rounds again.

We received a letter this morning from the European City Guide who claim to be compiling commercial information for their database of European companies. This information, (they say) will be published online and in CD-Rom format. At the bottom of this letter they tell you that you need pay them a fine sum of €997 per edition to appear in this directory.

A simple search on Google will show you hundreds of horror stories, including one Irish hairdresser barber who was threatened with his life if he didn’t pay up.

So beware – don’t even think about signing up for this scam!!
