Data Protection Agency Services
Received what seems to be an official letter which invites you to send a cheque to cover you with the data protection act? Hmm, well don't! Simply stuff their official envelope with all your junk mail, perhaps a few washers to make up the weight? and put it back in the post - without a stamp. That way they have to pay extra for its return. Its what we did and encourage anyone who receives these scams to do the same. To give you some idea of why, consider that recently 4,000 cheques at £95 were intercepted by Trading Standards at Fleetwood Pier.
Data Protection Scam
These letters, usually with a form enclosed, are generally marked 'final notice' or 'urgent reminder' and really do look official until you look closer at the logo and er......does that address look right to you? There is no longer any such organisation as 'The Data Protection Agency'. Hopefully this page should help reduce the profit being made by these scam merchants, and if it saves the day in your case then we're glad to have been of help. Please inform trading standards/police in the area marked on their letter - you may just nab them red handed!
