Directory Entries


more info...


Watch out for official looking “invoices” from trade directories and databases asking for your fax, internet and email details. These may appear to be simple requests for information, but beware of small print commitments to pay £100s for a directory entry. If you reply, it is then claimed that you have entered into a contract for an expensive, yet worthless, listing obliging you to pay.


Our advice:

If the directory is actually published, there may be no criminal offence and an enforceable contract in place.


Check all small print carefully, and warn your accounts staff to be on the look out for unsolicited invoices, particularly when you have temporary staff on duty.
