Although our business name is being used, we are not classed as the victim, as the victims are those who have lost funds. Responsibility to report this to Action Fraud therefore lies with those who have fallen victim to this crime. Therefore if you are a victim, you should immediately contact Action Fraud (0300 123 2040 Mon-Fri 8am-8pm) . It is ESSENTIAL to quote the Crime Reference: NFRC 2207 0531 7719.
