This morning I received yet another email addressed to Factoring Solutions telling me some of the benefits of factoring and how it could improve my working capital but this time inviting me to contact invoicefactoringnow.net for a quote.
Naturally my curiosity was aroused so I had a look at their website and found that it was just a single page and contained no details at all of either the name or address of the website owners but invited me to fill in a form which would allegedly result in me receiving some quotes for factoring.
I checked out the ownership of the website to find that it had been registered four months ago but the ownership was hidden behind a nominee in Panama (just like the last one) which normally implies that they have something to hide. The website is also hosted in USA which is unusual for a company supposedly trading in the UK and what is even more curious is that hidden away in the website coding is the telephone number 1 973-917-8002 which is obviously not a UK number.
Hopefully no-one receiving an email suggesting that they apply for a factoring quote would be stupid enough to do so on a website that contained absolutely no details about who they were applying to with no name, address or telephone number on the website and again hopefully any potential applicants will check them out on Google first and with a bit of luck will come across this blog post.
