A scam has been brought to the attention of the BPMA whereby credit cards are being used fraudulently.
The name may vary, but an email from a Gmail email address wanting to order plain stock t-shirts will be received. The payment will go through but the credit card company will recall the transaction.
The telephone number seems to be the only common denominator 0203 3896320.
The following links confirm that the number is being used for scams and fraudulent activity.
We strongly advise that members are extra cautious with enquiries, specifically when a Gmail or similar email account is used for an enquiry, requesting large quantities of plain stock and who do not provide any company details. Look at the language used within the email too as this is often a tell tale sign that something is not quite right.
If you have been a victim to this scam or any other scam, the BPMA advise that you contact the National Fraud & Cyber Crime Reporting Centre – https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/
