The "GDPR Notification from the UK Non Compliance Register" Scam

The "GDPR Notification from the UK Non Compliance Register" Scam

The "GDPR Notification from the UK Non Compliance Register" email below appears to be a fake. The email was sent to us with a broken link that should go to a so-called "UK Non Compliance Register" website. But, the website doesn't exist. Also, the website that is associated with the email address the message was sent from, was registered 8 days ago in Panama.

The "GDPR Notification from the UK Non Compliance Register" Scam

To the DPO of www.onlinethreatalerts.com. You are on The GDPR Non Compliance Register

Thu 06/12/2018 09:27

From: "Attention of the DPO: Action Pending Against You" [noncompliance@chatsworthdatacorp.info]

Notification from the UK Non Compliance Register.

To the Data Protection Officer of www.onlinethreatalerts.com.

It has come to our attention that your company is not GDPR compliant.

As your company is not GDPR compliant your company has now been entered onto the Non Compliance Register.

Your company is under review and may be reported to the ICO for non GDPR compliance.

Please go to www.noncomplianceregister.co.uk and enter your company name into the search box.

You will see listed on the page the actions that may now be taken against your company for non GDPR compliance.

This page may also begin to show on the search engines when your company is searched for.

The Non Compliance Register is a FREE public service that is available to any member of the public.

The public can search the register to see if a company can be trusted to store their data securely before they give that company their personal data.

This email has been sent to inform you that you are on the non compliance register.

There is no need to reply to this email.

Disclaimer: This communication is not a business communication and can be legally sent. It is a notification to advise you of action taken against you. There is no personal data involved with this communication. The Non Compliance Register does not hold any personal data and displays only information that is already in the public domain and can be accessed and stored legally by any person who searches the ICO fee payers register for DPO’s and as such does not fall under the GDPR compliance law or the 1998 European Data Protection Act. It is a pubic service that is free of charge.

Now, why is a GDPR email that should come from a website registered in the European Union, coming from chatsworthdatacorp.info, which has no website, is registered in the Caribbean, and not in the EU? The answer, it must be a scam or some scare tactics.

And, I cannot find a "UK Non Compliance Register" anymore on the Internet, it appears it does not exist.

    Why would a UK Government agency register their domain name in Panama?

    Same scam email from: zertondatacorpservices.info

    The majority of emails we get nowadays are related to scams.

    This is having such an effect on our business that we are returning to paper-based procedures.

    Projecting these problems forward a few years and we will hit a point where email and ebusiness is no longer viable for all companies.

    I'm afraid it's long overdue for governments to step in and fully regulate the internet otherwise it will completely fail.

    It's a real concern that the UK government are 'making tax digital' when trust in ebusiness systems is rapidly diminishing - take a look at the what the O2 debacle has done to hundreds of small businesses in the last day or two if you think this is OTT.

    We've had these being delivered to various obvious contact email addresses like info@ourwebsitename or admin@.... etc.

    Haven't followed any link but an obvious hoax because how can they possibly know if we are compliant or not? They don't have access to our in house compliance procedure and they don't even address the issue to the email address that we registered with the ICO.

    The problem with this scam would seem that if you did follow a link that worked and entered your company name you are submitting your company to a register that may then be made public. You're effectively filling in the details for the scammers.

    Additionally if anyone can access this public register then whenever a name is searched for it will automatically be added to the "non compliance register".

    A dirty scam and we can all thank the big companies that made the GDPR law necessary and so costly for the small guys struggling to get a foot in the door.

    It's hard enough to comply without having to deal with S**T like this!
