A WARNING TO ALL LOCAL BUSINESSES


Our thanks go to Craig and Sharon at The Red Hart in Bodham, for bringing this scam to our attention and also to Bob Brewster at The Crown. We know that it has had some publicity in the nationals, but felt that for those of you who do not always have time to read these from cover to cover, a little more information may be of help.

When this was brought to our attention, we asked some businesses in town and found that they are no longer only targeting the Pubs, but other types of business as well, so beware.

If you receive some paperwork from the DATA PROTECTION AGENCY SERVICES - FINAL NOTICE, demanding 95, beware, it is bogus! YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY THIS. The paperwork has an address, which is actually a school in Stoke, there is no telephone number for you to contact. Our simple message to businesses is to ignore these letters, and not to pay the fee demanded. Instead you should report the letters to your local trading standards office. Only the Commissioners information office based in Wilmslow has the statutry authority to enforce the 35 annual registration fee.
For more information regarding this matter phone 01625 545745 or the ICO has set up a special web site at www.dpr.gov.uk, which lists a number of companies that have been brought to its attention, yet have no connection with the government.
