How it works

We have been notified that these companies may be a victim of company identity fraud. Company identity fraud in fraudulent online sellers and rogue websites using the identity of a legitimate company to take money (usually by Western Union) for goods (usually electrical goods) which they do not deliver.

If you work for, or own one of these companies, please contact us for more information and advice about protecting your company's identity.

If you are trying to order something from this company, please visit our fraud advice pages for help checking companies.

If you think you have been a victim of company identity fraud, please use our report suspected fraud form.

British Gas Customers BEWARE

Call from British Gas offering you a deal that sounds too good to be true? Sadly, it probably is, and it could be this company:

18/6/11 FEATURE ME LIMITED (Registered No 07567180) http://ukdata.com/c/07567180

BEWARE - thousands of pounds taken from individuals by people who have a lot of personal information on them that seems genuine. As always do not share your bank details with anyone you don't know.
