It has come to our attention that various individuals and organisations are contacting clients and possibly candidates offering fictitious changes to payments information and false invoices. Such scams are fraudulent and intended to defraud or obtain personal information from the victims.
We take this matter extremely seriously and are working with the appropriate legal authorities to prevent such fraudulent schemes.
To reassure our clients all correspondence with you will be through the Consultant whom you have an on going relationship with unless another WRS Tech representative is invited in to conversation or you request to speak to them. Please always check with your primary consultant if there is doubt .
Please also contact WRS Tech should you receive a letter by post which asks for changes to payments information and false invoices. WRS Tech’s name and logo, or versions thereof could be featured on the documentation in which case signatures and footers are very often basic, and often unprofessional in their wording. Documentation provided by the perpetrators often includes false stamps or company seals which, on close inspection, are totally unconnected with WRS Tech.
Fraudulent Email correspondence is often sent via free web-based email accounts such as Yahoo.com, Yahoo.co.uk, Gmail.com, Googlemail.com and Live.com or via traditional post on bogus headed paper.
WRS Tech will never send correspondence from a Gmail, Live, Hotmail or Yahoo email address.
Should you encounter any email or written correspondence purporting to be from WRS Tech which does not match any previous correspondence please contact us immediately on +44(0)23 92596893 and consider reporting the matter to your local law enforcement agency, police or online to Action Fraud, the UK’s national fraud and internet crime reporting centre (see below for details).
WRS tech will continue to take action to try to prevent scams. We report any apparent fraudulent activity to the relevant authorities, including the police.
By drawing the public’s attention to the following information we hope we can prevent people becoming victims of this fraud and at the same time disrupt those who perpetrate such frauds.
