New scam targets recently registered businesses

CYBER CRIME

New scam targets recently registered businesses

A new scam is targeting businesses soon after registering with Companies House, asking them to pay a “fee”.

The letter, from the National Registry of Companies and Businesses, asks the business to pay for the publication of their company, stating that a lack of payment will result in ‘lack of entry in the National Register of Companies and Businesses’. It asks the business to pay a “registration fee” of £190.

Some of our clients have contacted us after receiving these letters. Please protect yourself by:

  • Not responding to the letter
  • Not paying
  • Not disclosing your bank details

Visit the Action Fraud website for full details.

For further advice and information, please speak to your usual Tait Walker contact.
