Possible Scam Alert

We have been made aware of a possible scam working it’s way down from the Scottish Borders. Practices have been contacted by a company called HCRA and advised that they placed orders for various materials in the summer (handbooks, CD-Roms, posters etc) that were evidently tailored specifically to the practices. The ‘dispatcher’ is adamant that the practices are liable and, as a consequence, the order is being dispatched and an invoice to the tune of £299 (including VAT and shipping/handling costs) would be sent to the practices. Needless to say the practices knew nothing about the order. Trading standards in the relevant areas have been contacted and we have been advised that the company website is registered in Canada and in all probability this is another scam. Please notify the LMC if you are approached by this company and take care to ensure that all your staff are aware of this scam and that they should triple check prior to signing any documentation/agreeing to receipt of any order.
