Euro Business Guide Scamming Again
I mentioned this before. I just cant understand how this crowd are still in operation. Total bunch of crooks:
Please print and fill the enclosed document and send it back to: Euro Business Guide, P.O. Box 2021, 3500GA UTRECHT, The Netherlands, updating is free of charge! If you want to unsubscribe send an email to email@example.com
The ‘updating is free of charge!’ really is such an underhand way to hide the following fine print in the footer of their sign-up form:
THE VALIDATION TIME OF THE CONTRACT IS THREE YEARS AND STARTS ON THE EIGHTH DAY AFTER SIGNING THE CONTRACT.
Ooh, how nice – 7 days cooling off period (God forbid they actually break the law).
THE PRICE PER YEAR IS EURO 990. 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.
Wow, that’s good value – €999 per annum with automatic extensions for two further years.
If you receive anything from this bunch of gougers simply ignore it as spam of the most repulsive kind.
If you have signed this form unknowing of the legalese, you have 7 days under EU legislation to cancel your subscription (Distance Selling Directive), and if Euro Business Guide pursue you for payment (regardless of the 7 days) get in touch with your local national consumer affairs body.
Hopefully some day these people will receive their just deserts…
