Accounting-Seo Fraudulent Emails - Beware!

We have received a good number of emails from accounting-seo.com demanding payment for what we thought was a free service at the time from the EU. We made the mistake of responding today, asking her to stop threatening us based on the fact we did not recall having an agreement with such a company. Joanna, or whoever is using that email, replied with an attached signed IO and sent an invoice.

Accounting-Seo Fraudulent Emails - Beware!

But, accounting-seo.com is a new website created approximately 6 months ago and hides it domain information. Their website is not real, it is a splash page with no information about the service they offer. The information on the page belongs to their hosting provider, who creates a default page until their customers create their own.

The Website www.accounting-seo.com

This is what the people behind the website do, they trick you into signing up for a free service, then send an invoice requesting payment, threaten legal action if payment is not received to frighten people into making payment.

    Updating service is available for existing clients, with existing profiles, your company did not had a profile, therefore, nothing to update. Please review your order and make the difference between updating and registering.

    All the information regarding the registration process, price, reference to the clauses governing your contract are listed on the order, few lines above Legal Signature/Company Stamp field.
