Scam warning
Perth & Kinross Trading Standards team is warning local businesses not to respond to a mailshot that could result in a bill of £790 per annum.
Businesses are being advised to ignore a letter from a firm with an address in Hamburg, Germany, which is headed ‘UK Data Control Scotland Business’.
The letter is designed to look like an official Government document, and requires the recipient to provide their VAT Registration Number to update the ‘UK-DATA CONTROL portal’.
The letter also includes a form for businesses to check and sign to say their details are correct.
The small print indicates that a cost of £790 a year will be incurred by the business for a minimum of three years.
