One of our clients (Amanda Falsey – Finance Director at AJ Fabtech) has bought to our attention a scam that is praying on UK manufacturing businesses involving tool sharpening.
Here is what Amanada has to say-
“I have investigated this on google and it is a scam on a very large scale (more like organised crime), there are so many companies falling foul of this and they suffering a barrage of abuse, harassment, threats and financial loss.
The police are not taking this seriously, but something needs to be done to make businesses in the UK aware of this scam and protect us. They are going under various company names but they undertake tool sharpening in the back of a large lorry.
They are currently in the Dewsbury/ Wakefield area, but am aware they have undertaking this scam across UK and they mentioned that they were going to London and Birmingham.
If you want to warn UK businesses and help protect us, please help us get the word out.”
