European Business Number Scam Warning


July 2017
Dear Reader,

Have you received a letter pertaining to be from the European Business Number?
 
According to Fraud Help Desk "EBN typically sends out a form with some of the details of the recipient already filled in. Next, the recipient is asked to check whether these data are correct. This serves to suggest that the two parties are old business partners. However, people who sign and then return the form, will be stuck to a contract they never wanted." This will force them to pay €870 a year.

Our advice is to always read the fine print on invoices. Scammers love fine print: they use it to defraud unsuspecting businesses and individuals.
If you receive a letter like this you should rip it up and do not respond to them.

More information can be found at https://www.fraudhelpdesk.org/fake-invoice-european-business-number-pops/ 
 
If you would like any further information on the above then please give us a call.
Please feel free to forward this to any of your colleagues.

 

Sincerely,

McMahon Keyes & Co.
