Default Fraud !!!

It has come to my attention that someone in the Malaysia area is using my name and has somehow got hold of my business registration certificate from several years ago !!

If anyone from the region comes across people purporting to be "ARGOS Loudspeaker and Publishing"... IT IS NOT ME !!!

IT IS A FRAUDULENT OPERATION !!!!!!

Bump !



I hope the moderators don't mind if I bump this occasionally.

This is not a pleasant issue, and I would like it to remain near the top for a while !!!

Andy, this is indeed very unfortunate, but I doubt that the mods can do anything about this. I don't think they should get involved in private or business disputes at all.

I hope that at the very least you will not be damaged financially.

Yep, they are even using an address I lived at 7-8 years ago, as well as the business name that I had registered at the time, which is well and truly out of date !!

I have contacted ASIC.

I hope not too many people have got stung !!!

This is really bad Andy, have you contacted Australian Federal Police yet??
I thought there was a unit dedicated to this sort of internet scam?

Perhaps we need a permanent thread on fraud and scams.

you should let the business registration people know so that they don't come after you when people complain!
