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!

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!!
