Farmers warned over scam letter

 

A warning has gone out to farmers and rural business owners across Wales not to respond to a scam letter issued by the ‘Welsh Commercial Register’ asking them to provide details of their company.

The letter, which reads: “...If you require the publication of further company details which exceeds the scope of the basic data entry, please use the attached form and return this to us. As our company is not affiliated with a public authority or any official entity, this entry is subject to a charge….”

 

The attached form asks businesses to enter their details for which they will get charged 993 euros plus VAT. By signing the form the person authorises ‘Direct Publisher S.L.U.’ to record and publish the information and data provided as an advertising insert for a period of three years.”

 

Farmers Union of Wales president, Glyn Roberts, said: “This letter has been made to look like an official Government communication, which could easily trick many farmers and rural business owners into providing their details.

 

“The financial implication of providing the company with business details could be devastating. I urge farmers and rural business owners to remain vigilant against these scam letters.”

 

Any farmer who is unsure as to the validity of a letter asking for financial or business details should contact their local trading standards office or contact the Citizens Advice consumer services on 03454 04 05 06 or a Welsh line on 03454 04 05 05.
