By: Tamer Kirac Tue, 14 Jun 2011 12:33:39 +0000 EBG is a SCAM!

Reminder to recipients of letters from EBG and/or its representatives:

Do not respond to anything sent by EBG, or through their representatives, such as Waldberg & Hirsch.

Instead, make a copy of what is sent to you, include a simple statement of the illegality of the EBG actions, that it is basically an extortion, and mail copies to your Embassy in Holland and Brussels, Ombudsman, Local Chamber of Commerce and the Local Police Department.

If they call you, simply hang up the phone.

By: Elcon Denmark Thu, 19 May 2011 08:03:59 +0000 We are just a victim of Euro Business Guide. We will never pay them a cent because It is unlegal way to earne momey like this in our country. Recently we got letter of Waldberg & Hirsch.
We have already contacted Holland ambassade to hear about this cheating. I hope they will be contacted soon by Holland police about this unlegal way to cheat companies in the world. Unfortunatly for them we are an old member of European group.

By: Hany Thu, 21 Apr 2011 11:34:23 +0000 Dear All,

i did the same mistake and i would like to know whether they took anyone to the court for that action or not? also did any of you received the CD of the company?

waiting for your reply.

Best Regards

By: Julia Sat, 09 Apr 2011 21:04:06 +0000 One of our employees signed this thing, due to bad english understanding and though its free thing.

Then we started to recieve the invoices to pay them.
Tried to contact, but no use. Then finally wrote them that we r not interested in this for such crazy amount of money and that it wasnt written clearly – info of payment.

They kept sending us faxes with invoices and emails, we ignored, they also called.

Then I wrote that as its not the owner of company who signed the contract, it has no value. And that our antivirus doesnt even allow their page to open.

My friend told that they r registered in one country, website in another and bank account in third. so its a scam.

Better to report them to police.

By: Robert Thu, 24 Mar 2011 16:33:31 +0000 We are the new victim, of course, we don’t pay one cent to them. But it is regret that we still can not stop them after so many years. There will be more new victims!
What can we do? They are the rubbish of the human beings and we should throw them out to the bin!

By: denisse Mon, 21 Mar 2011 07:59:34 +0000 You are wrong Rupert. They have cashed more than 3 million last year

By: Rupert Wed, 23 Feb 2011 20:01:33 +0000 We’ve warned companies locally in South Africa about this scam.

Unfortunately, many around here have already been tricked by Europe Business Guide and receive follow-up e-mails, faxes and legal-correspondence from them.

Fortunately, as far as we could establish, no one has made any payment to them yet.

By: Behzad Sat, 12 Feb 2011 11:40:33 +0000 I got their invoice and send them a ceased and desist letter to halt any further notices. They ignored them so I now am charging them for processing their emails to me which is now up to EUR 5800. Their bill is adding up which I am intending to follow up on with a debt collector with interesting methods in Romania.

By: debbie yatno Wed, 09 Feb 2011 05:36:28 +0000 Dear all,

I have also been bombarded with a lot of mail from eurobusiness guide, yes i did sign up with them, thingking it was free, and did not see in small letters that there is yearly subscription fee of EURO$999,- to pay up for and now they are bombamrding me daily with all sorts of payment and extra fines for delayed payment and ask me to make payment, or otherwise they will take me to lagl action and the problem is the villa in bali is not even mine, I am working at the premise a ssales marketing officer and was only helping on behalf of the villa.
I am not paying a DIME,waiting in bali-Indonesia, if they want to take legal action, let it be…i am welcoming them with my hands open wide………….do not be bullied by these online terrorists, if you pay means YOU ARE GIVING IN!!

By: Shank Fri, 21 Jan 2011 08:52:29 +0000 Hi,

I’m from MALAYSIA. I received the mail from “Europe Business Guide” on “Business Guide Update 2011-2012″. I’m in charge of admin work in my company and I signed the form and mailed it on 16 Dec 2010.

Today, 21 Jan 2011 I received a copy of their invoice dated 3 Jan 2011 (did not receive the invoice before this) with their usual reminder letter as alerted on :
requesting for payment of EUR 990, late payment of EUR 99 & administration fee EUR 35.

This is the reply from them when I requested to terminate the insertion :

Dear xxxx,

Unfortunately, a cancellation in full of your order comes too late to be taken as valid, since the services for the 1st year have already been delivered.

The invoice no. 74890 was issued for already delivers services, your first year of subscription into our guide.

Considering the order you have placed is for three years and the services have already been delivered for the first year (i.e. invoice no. 748xx), upon receiving the payment for this invoice we will be able to cancel the years 2 and 3 on the agreement.

The application forms are the same with slight changes on the logo, referral website was

I searched my for company’s name on the net and no link was found to this website. Only when searched in my company’s name appeared.

Anyone has any new updates on how to handle these people?

By: Lacassin Dororhée Thu, 06 Jan 2011 11:48:24 +0000 Hello there,

Same problem for us. Same wrong behaviour from those loosers at EBG. They are just mad!!!!! We will not pay a cent, and we sent an email to all the competent authorities.
Ignore them, and don’t give them a cent!
Good luck!

By: Karel Sun, 26 Dec 2010 02:14:27 +0000 They do not only scam for your money. They are also known spammers. They buy large email lists which script kiddies gathered with their spider-bots and spam all companies asking them to submit their details.

Please write to the dutch Chamber of Commerce in Utrecht and please take your time to also call dutch authorities and tell them about these people.

By: Norm Thu, 16 Dec 2010 08:07:27 +0000 They are still sending emails, faxes and posted letters to me, after ignoring them for 2 years. I have just conditioned myself to delete, or garbage them once I receive them. Such a waste of paper, but to these guys it is money and ‘business’. Best to just ignore them; however it would be good to hear from anyone that has tried to take this to any authority. Do they have anything to say?

By: Grafikdesign Sun, 14 Nov 2010 17:35:56 +0000 yes they are still active – please report cases to local chamber of commerce.
people have to be warned…

By: argiris Thu, 23 Sep 2010 08:18:47 +0000 Hello everybody

Well the Eurodirectory keeps sending me letters and e-mails in order to make me pay the fees they charged me. Every letter has a small ammount plus.
I bounce their e-mails back and sent also back their letters as unwanted.
Last week I received an e-mail, if I don’t pay they are threatening to take me to court.
Which one I wander….
Dont’t pay them anything … at all.

Best regards

By: Jules Wed, 04 Aug 2010 12:48:12 +0000 Do not be tired or give in!!
These people want you to be tired, want you to be afraid, then maybe you pay tinking it will end the problem, but if you pay…. The problem gets worse because then you are seen as a soft target.

The ‘contract’ os for 3 years, so if you pay then they harass you for year 2 and year 3… So please stay strong, you deserve the money so much more than these greedy scammers

By: Michaela Wed, 04 Aug 2010 12:42:01 +0000 Anyone still having problems – Please do what i did and tell them you have taken advice from your European MP and they have advised not to pay and to take legal action under wrongful advertising.
I have only had one call since i told them this in an email last year. I repeated the statement over the phone and havent heard back.

I do however expect to hear from them again – they will possibly hope that a paymant maybe made to them by mistake??

That wont happen in my lifetime.

Please dont worry – dont pay and dont even open the letters – infact just return to sender!

By: Grazina Tue, 27 Jul 2010 08:30:07 +0000 Who could tell me in what period this terrorism will end? I just tired :(

By: Jonas Sat, 19 Jun 2010 07:15:41 +0000 I have now recieved several reminders with only a week or two between them with the usual fees added to the bill and an increasingly threatening tone. It is the incanation called World Compant Register with addresses in Latvia, Spain, Netherlands and British Virgin Islands (!) After the first invoice I wrote a letter disputing that invoice referring to the The Directive 2006/114/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council, dated 12th December 2006 concerning Misleading and Comparative Advertising. After that I have not replied them. They have sent me three reminders and an e-mail with legal threats. Maybe the best way would have been to ignore them from the start, I dont know.

By: Tamer Kirac Tue, 15 Jun 2010 16:42:28 +0000 Ref. European Business Guide

After 4-5 years of scamming and mostly succeeding in extorting money from a large number of naive start-up businesses, it is surprising that they still continue with their unethical and most probably illegal operation.

I am certain that there has been complaints to the Utrecht Post Office and the ING Bank/Netherlands, associated with this operation. What is surprising is that they have not taken any action.

By: Tamer Kirac Sat, 12 Jun 2010 08:04:53 +0000 They are still at it.

In a recent letter they are requesting/demanding 990 EUR payment within 14 days.

By: Samuel Finsbury Sun, 23 May 2010 09:01:15 +0000 Anyone that send them $1 is foolish. Our saga has been going on since 2008 and despite the repeat warnings, threats, faxes, emails etc we’ve never paid them a penny. Am still waiting for the serious action, ie a proper court summons. This will never happen as these people are scammers, thieves and intimidators. No-one has ever been taken to court by them. If I were able to locate that Andreea woman, she’d experience an event that even the roughtest woman hasn’t experienced.

By: Martin Tue, 04 May 2010 06:30:51 +0000 hab dieses Mail auch bekommen – bin aber nicht reingefallen

By: Jonas Sat, 01 May 2010 12:06:11 +0000 Hi all!

I have a small self run business and have just made the same mistake. They are now called World Company Register but the form is practically the same and the addresses is the same, as well as their spiteful methods. I have recieved the invoice but it has been a week now so the reminders have not started to arrive yet. I am searching the net for advice and found this great site. Right now I am considering whether I should ignore them or only send them a first letter about my refusal to pay and to inform them that I will file a complaint to several authorities. The quesion is, should I wait untill the harassment really starts and is it advisable to send them a letter so I can file it in case of a future law suit for example. Is ignoring them completely the way to go? One is tempted to argue and threaten them since they really pisses you off but maybe you should remain cool?

By: samantha Thu, 08 Apr 2010 09:40:44 +0000 Why dont the interpol interfere ? Why cant the police interfere ? How is it possible ?

By: Steve Thu, 01 Apr 2010 09:10:19 +0000 My company signed this by “contract” by mistake, and even after e-mails and letters sent to Euro Business Guide, they WILL NOT cancel the order once they have it. I quickly decided it was all a scam and decided not to pay – judging by comments here it was the correct decision! 3 years later, all they do is send the occasional letter saying please pay, or have Waldberg & Hirsch (debt collectors) sent it for them. No further action has ever been taken.

My advice if you have signed the agreement, don’t get worried, don’t waste time on it, and most importantly, DON’T PAY!!

By: Mary Yfanti Wed, 31 Mar 2010 12:22:03 +0000 Hi everyone,

I am yet another victim from Greece. We originally came to an arrangement with them (Ms Carmen Ispas in our case) back in February 2009, where they accepted us paying for only one year and then cancelling the payments for the next two years (I have all this correspondence on file). Just today I received a new invoice for the second year. I replied via email, quoting all previous emails but both Carmen’s address and the general were returned to me as “fatal errors”. This is when I googled and ended up here.

Just prior to this message, I talked to the Greek Chamber of Commerce – who had no idea, and I am still trying to file a report at the Ministry of Commerce through their helpline.

Going through the whole thread, I noticed so many fellow Greeks reporting the same scam. Did any of you guys report it anywhere and did you get any feedback from anyone? I will be sending a letter to the Chamber of Commerce, so that they can print it in their circular so that other companies are not scammed.

I am definitely not paying again, but it would be great if we could all do something about it (or press authorities to do it).

Athens, Greece

By: Lothar Wed, 24 Mar 2010 11:37:46 +0000 Me too I am only one speaking english person in company. I did not read carefully the small text and asked my boss to sign.
She told me (wise woman): what for? the stamp would be enough for them.
Now we are receiving these scam leeter. I consulted the lawer of our company and was informed that whithout signature the stamp
is not valid.
So when such blackmail letter arrives is follows directly into the trash.
I wish to everybody to be strong and to hold out!

By: seka Wed, 03 Mar 2010 14:54:04 +0000 I got the same letter. I did pay the amount of 990 euros. After several months I got a letter from Andrea and she informed that I didn’t pay. I was surprised and sent her a copy of my payment. Then she told me it was a mistake. At the very beginning I tried not to pay, but they told me I had to do it. I was so surprised and affraid, so I paid. I had no intention to pay for the second year and made a reminder in order not to forget to send a letter two months before the end of the contract. But I feel fine today when I realised that Company is scam.

By: Alexander Thu, 11 Feb 2010 12:07:55 +0000 Hello guys,

We signed the form from WBG in March 2009, as I remember. There were a lot of emails (I tried to explain all at first, then just ignored letters), then post letters, few faxes approximately until July 2009. Then it was silent, and they woke up in January 2010! Post letter with scan of our signed agreement + a letter from collectors agency today. I think, it is because “agreement” was prolongationed automatically for the next year, so they demand 995 EURO + 400 EURO as penalty. I wonder how patient they are and how long it will continue :)

To all – don’t worry about these bastards, they don’t worth your health! All the best!

With kind regards,

By: Michaela Mon, 01 Feb 2010 08:38:38 +0000 Dear all

thanks to the advise on here i wrote to my EMP’s and the replay back from them all is DO NOT PAY and if they continue to hound them then write to advise if they continue you will seek advice on Wrongfull Advertising. I sent an email to said bitch woman and she didnt reply…shame really lol

I feel so much better, myu boss is no longer stressing and he is actually impressed with how i have handled the mistake i made.

We all make them and they arevery clever in what they do.

Just stay strong – dont pay!

By: annoyed Sun, 31 Jan 2010 10:41:29 +0000 Thanks Sophie,

I hope that the same will happen to me also :)

By: Sophie Fri, 29 Jan 2010 11:44:01 +0000 Hi

I signed the form back in July, when I returned from holiday I saw the invoice. I tried to contact Ramona by phone but she wouldnt speak to me just continued to send me emails demanding payment. Luckily have understanding bosses, when I spoke to them and explained they just refused to pay. But I was still a bit concerned about the letters, faxes and emails being received.

Thankfully I found this website, I have continued to ignore all correspondance received and have not heard from them since the beginning of December.

By: annoyed Fri, 22 Jan 2010 15:33:14 +0000 Hi everyone,
thanks for all comments they are really more than welcomed in this situation!
I did the same thing and those letters are constantly coming. I am an employee whom the head completely trusts. This is the worst mistake I’ve made.
We just send them one mail and they didn’t respond. I saw this site and I was rather relaxed until today when we received Waldberg&Hirsh notification. I am relly encouraged by your comments but I am a bit scared that I don’t have any other documetation except this mail from the last year. And its really nicee toknow that you are not alone.
please can you put here some letters of complaint that you’ve alreday sent to them?
Bosnia is not the member of EU, we have no MEP to write to.


By: damianos Wed, 30 Dec 2009 18:19:20 +0000 Hello I am really clad to see that I am not the only victim of this scammers.
I just logged here and gained some useful info. My lawyer send them a notice today makind clear that we are going to sue them for faud…
A little while later they sent another fax claiming that I will have to pay the years subscription. I dont intent to do so but I will try to have these people arrested.
If any victims from greece face the same probs pls contact me.

By: Michaela Tue, 01 Dec 2009 14:21:19 +0000 Well ive been panicking. I had this in September and we have actually got lots of FREE insertions on many website advertising our services so I thought nothing of including ourselves on this one until the I started getting emails, letters and phone calls demanding we pay for the FREE UPDATE.

I work for a small company, times are hard anyway I know we cant afford to pay.

How can companies still be a able to get away with tricking you into such contracts.

Has anyone paid?

Has anyone finally been left alone after not paying?

My boss sees each letter that comes in and I know it will be my job on the line.

A scared young lady in need of reassurance.

I will be sending a letter to all those address’s today.

I think Watch Dog need to take this up

By: Jules Thu, 19 Nov 2009 09:17:18 +0000 to contact Mr Busittil I would try the EU Parliament website, if the number on there is wrong there must be a general helpline

He reports back to the Parliament in January and the Commission will also have to report on what they have done to kill off these scams so it is very important that you all write to your MEPs
here is a link telling you how

Please do it now, or at leasrt print this off and have it in your in tray! This lessens the chance that it gets forgotten.

By: alfonso rubio Wed, 18 Nov 2009 16:51:51 +0000 Did anyone try to phone to Mr. Busuttil?. I dial the numbers and there´s no signal. When I dial the other guy´s ph-# it sounds like a wrong number. I´d be interested in speaking with Busuttil although I´m not shure that they can help us.

By: alfonso rubio Wed, 18 Nov 2009 16:47:58 +0000 Dear all, I´ve also been trapped by these crooks, EUB Guide.

A lot of us is suffering health problems for their pressure. I´d be interested on creating a group in order to contract a lawyer in Utrech and go ourselves to the court in order to:

1st- cancel the contract. The contract is clearly a fraud.
2nd- Claim this people for the health damages suffered by most of us. I would bring a certficate from a doctor for depression caused for bulying.This case has created a loss of concentration in my work with a huge economic cost.

I will be very happy to spend some money to go against these criminals. I think that if we gather 20 companies and go against them, we can create them big problem with a little expense per company.

Is anyone interested on creating the group?.

I´m from Spain and I know a group of local lawyers who has a correspondence with a netherlands team.

Anyway I´m shure that there must be some other victims from netherlands or belgium and will be easier for them to organize the contact with a lawyer there. We could open a bank account and send an amount of money to be fixed in order to defend our rights.

I don´t put any confidence on the politics to arrenge my problems. I normally have to arrange them by my own. And I feel better when I start moving instead of suffering the presure doing nothing.

I don´t know if you can contact me throught this page. Anyway if it is possible please include my email:

By: Handegok Tue, 17 Nov 2009 14:39:46 +0000 Hello,
I trapped by world business guide and try to cancel the transaction.cThe correspondence turned to quarrel and lost my patience too.A person called ramona continued to send me reminders then i have insulted her serioulsy and correspondence stopped.
No hear since october??
Wonder what happened to these losers?

By: Samuel Finsbury Wed, 30 Sep 2009 10:43:56 +0000 Has anyone actually got a confirmed physical office address of these people?

By: tor Wed, 30 Sep 2009 08:32:58 +0000 I have ckecked their website and there is 840 spanish companies wich fell in this fraud.

Almost 1 million euros got.

By: Jules Tue, 29 Sep 2009 08:55:55 +0000 Hi Samuel,
First please let me express my condolances at the loss of your staff memeber, I have long said that the evil hounding and marauding of these lowlives must lead people to early graves, if not throught sucicide certainly through stress.

Please pause a moment for consideration of what I suggest next, because no matter how vile this Andreea woman may seem, sending abuse gives here the advantage, far better to take a deep breath and take your tragic story to the newspapers and TV. Funnel that anger into a day of press releases and phonecalls and hit them where it hurts – with negative publicity.

Every time someone reads the name of one of these guides they are less likely to sign in error, every time they hear a story like yours and find out that these people bully and threaten but NEVER go to court they are less likely to pay.

So please use what has happened to help others

Here are the names of the scam guides run from the office where Anreea works

EU Company Directory
Euro Business Guide
European Business Connection
World Business Directory
World Business Guide

try to get them all named when going to the press

Please also report your sorry tale to ALL the suggested complaint addresses we have listed here

One letter, just CC it to all of them

By: Richard Hearne Tue, 29 Sep 2009 08:38:29 +0000 Hi Samuel

I’ve no reason to disbelieve you, and it sounds like a very sad story. Unfortunately some people on this planet of ours don’t really care about anything but making a fast buck. The company this post is about is obviously run by such people. What goes around comes around, and some day they will get their just deserts.

Thanks for posting, and very sad to hear about your colleague.

By: Samuel Finsbury Sat, 26 Sep 2009 01:52:15 +0000 In fact, does anyone have a valid fax number for them – I’ll send them 1000 form feeds!

By: Samuel Finsbury Sat, 26 Sep 2009 01:50:34 +0000 One of my employees accidentally signed one of these thinking it was free. That was back in 2005. They then started sending emails and invoices and then a letter from a solicitor in Brussells. I checked that one out and they didn’t exist. So I stood firm that we wern’t gonna pay it. The net result was that my trusty member of staff hung himself. He left a note of 20+ pages apologising for having got my company into the deal. Whilst this tragic event would possibly have happened anyway, this as the final trigger that certainly cauased him to jump.

So now, these bastards are sending spam to my domain to all sorts of random names. I’ve had 37 copies of it this week. I’ve started sending firm then firmer then rude then ruder and now downright obscene replies, all to This is the woman that sent all of the invoices and got the ‘solicitors’ on the case. She has replied asking that I stop sending her obscene emails and threatening to report me to the police (??where) but I will persist. I suggest that everyone do the same and she’ll get some of her own medicine back. That said, I have better things to do than deal with these jerks. They are utter scum playing on the conciousness of decent business folks. I can say without doubt that if I lived anywhere near their building, I’d become a full blown terrorist for the five minutes that it took to torch their building!

By: Chaugule from India Tue, 25 Aug 2009 15:34:56 +0000 Hi,
This is from India. It seems now they have targeted India. I fell prey to their deceptive email and sent back the filled up form by email without signing but just typing my first name there. Still they are threatening me. I sure am going to ignore them. Let’s be united in tackling them. My Indian Philosophy tells me : Truth always prevails! So fellows (Indians and others), do not panic.
Take care!
