World Company Directory scam

Here’s another sneaky scam with hidden charges that will make your eyes water! If you receive an email from info@worldcompanydirectory.com with the subject ‘Registration of the World Company Directory 2009/2010’ do not fill in their form or you are liable to be billed for 980 Euros. It’s all in the small print as you can see from the following:


BY SIGNING THIS DOCUMENT, YOU ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING CONDITIONS AND THE CONDITIONS SPECIFIED IN “THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR ENTRY” ON WEBPAGE: WWW.WORLDCOMPANYDIRECTORY.COM. YOUR SIGNATURE IS LEGALLY BINDING AND ENTITLES YOU TO PLACE AN ENTRY IN THE ONLINE DATABASE OF THE WORLD COMPANY DIRECTORY LTD., WHICH CAN BE ACCESSED VIA THE INTERNET. PURSUANT TO THE CONTRACT CONDITIONS STATED IN “THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR ENTRY” ON WEBPAGE: WWW.WORLDCOMPANYDIRECTORY.COM, THE TERM OF THE CONTRACT IS THREE YEARS AND COMMENCES ON THE EIGHTH DAY AFTER SIGNING THE CONTRACT. THE ENTRY IS GRANTED AFTER THE SERVICE PROVIDER HAS RECEIVED THE SIGNED DOCUMENT. I HEREBY ORDER A SUBSCRIPTION WITH SERVICE PROVIDER WORLD COMPANY DIRECTORY LTD. I WILL HAVE AN ENTRY INTO ITS DATABASE FOR THREE YEARS. THE PRICE PER YEAR IS EUR 980. THE SUBSCRIPTION WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY RENEWED EVERY YEAR FOR ANOTHER YEAR, UNLESS THE SERVICE PROVIDER OR THE SUBSCRIBER RECEIVE SPECIFIC WRITTEN NOTICE TWO MONTHS BEFORE THE SUBSCRIPTION EXPIRES. YOUR DATA WILL BE RECORDED. THE PLACE OF JURISDICTION IN ANY DISPUTE ARISING IS THE SERVICE PROVIDER’S ADDRESS. THE AGREEMENT BETWEEN SERVICE PROVIDER AND SUBSCRIBER IS SUBJECT TO THE CONDITIONS STATED IN “THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR ENTRY” ON WEBPAGE: WWW.WORLDCOMPANYDIRECTORY.COM.

Keep your eyes peeled for these sorts of emails – they prey on the unwary, but then who’s ever heard of the World Company Directory?!

  1. SCAM running out of 100 Pall Mall SW1Y

    This is an internet scam A company calling itself WORLD COMPANY DIRECTORY Ltd aka WCD operating out of 100 PALL MALL LONDON SW1Y 5NQ T02076648742 T02073213738 targets firms online offering FREE listings However once you send back the one page application form they then claim that you have entered into some kind of advertising contract and they demand Eur980 each year for three years plus costs It’s a dupe, a con, a scam for sure

    I understand from speaking to staff at 100 PALL MALL that they are a business centre accepting calls and mail on behalf of World Company Directory No one actually works their from WCD.

    It’s a typical scam using up market premises as part of the subterfuge to carry out the scam. It uses REGUS Staff as stooges. I have come across this before.

    The main lady on all correspondence is a Susanna CORAZON she is never in or contactable? Hello, alarm bells!

    The main office is registered at WCD – World Company Av & Ag Elenis 2 Stasinos building 6th floor 1060 NICOSIA CYPRUS
