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
