Don’t sign the World Business Directory form unless you want to lose £2940
This nasty piece of work arrived in my inbox today.
It appears to offer you the chance to ‘update’ your data for free on a business directory.
However, the small print says quite clearly:
THE SIGNING OF THIS DOCUMENT REPRESENTS THE ACCEPTANCE OF THE FOLLOWING……THE VALIDATION TIME OF THE CONTRACT IS THREE YEARS….I HEREBY ORDER A SUBSCRIPTION….THE PRICE PER YEAR IS GBP 980.
You might want to ask yourself – what possible benefit could this company give you that’s worth £2940? A quick Google on the company name ‘EU Business Services Ltd’ leads to this informative site.
Still, these people would say, you were warned. And they would be right. After all, it does say ‘only sign if you want to place an insertion’. Mind you, it also says “please fill in the form completely” in bold in an attempt to get you to sign.
Those who know me know how much I dislike online directories at the best of times. With a bit of luck this post will zip to the top of Google for anyone wondering about this so-called directory – and maybe stop one or two people falling for this cynical piece of work.
