Expo Guide continues to target unsuspecting businesses

A horticultural supplier targeted by the notorious Expo Guide using a photocopied signature of one of its employees has received another letter asking for money.

Fertiliser producer Prayon was sent an invoice for 1,271 euros from Expo Guide SC in Mexico. Expo Guide which charges extortionate fees for its listings has targetted exhibitors from the  Four Oaks Trade Show and other industry shows and events.

The invoice had an employee's photocopied signature attached, even though the company does no business with Mexico and had never spoken to anyone from the guide.

Now Prayon has received another letter with a reminder that the invoice remains pending and asking for payment to be made as soon as possible.

The Expo Guide organisation, based in Mexico, asks exhibitors at trade shows around the world to sign up to its online directory before sending them a large bill for very high inclusion fees, published in the small print of its mail outs.

Expo Guide has targeted a number of companies exhibiting at trade shows including Four Oaks and IoG Saltex.
