Do you suspect that a company's identity is being used fraudulently?
If you believe that a company is being impersonated to commit fraud, please tell us about it below. We will write to the registered company, inform the police, and work with them to bring down the fraudulent websites and prevent others becoming a victim.
Please note, we will not respond to individual situations unless we need some further information from you. Provide details of what you've already established through internal investigation, any details about the suspects, a point of contact and explain the extent of the fraud and loss etc.
