A great offer to update/include your details in a business directory. With the following small print:
I HEREBY ORDER A SUBSCRIPTION WITH SERVICE PROVIDER INTERNATIONAL DIRECTORIES LTD “WORLD BUSINESS GUIDE”. I WILL HAVE AN INSERTION INTO ITS DATA BASE FOR THREE YEARS.
THE PRICE PER YEAR IS EURO 995.
THE SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY EXTENDED EVERY YEAR FOR ANOTHER YEAR, UNLESS SPECIFIC WRITTEN NOTICE IS RECEIVED BY THE SERVICE PROVIDER OR THE SUBSCRIBER TWO MONTHS BEFORE THE EXPIRATION OF THE SUBSCRIPTION.
Nice one, a rolling 3 year contract for 1,000 euros per annum per person sending these back.
These are picked up regularly in the media as being scams - see this post in TheRegister.
[please note, I take no responsibility for the validity of any transaction you may enter into as a result of taking advantage of the offer SCAM above]
