    Default Pay up $490.00 on time or else you will be charge 8% interest for late payment!

    This is not some thing new,
    this company has been sending letters to many business owners to demand payment for subscription of listing their company in their website since 2013.
    it has been reported in News Papers, countless business owners had been filing police reports, filing complaints with Case against this company, yet last month, they still sent out letters to many business owners demanding payment. they will impose 8% interest if business owner did not pay up on time.

    I also received such letter from this company last month. Upon a simple Google search, found out this is just a scam, some victims did paid up, but most of them quickly found out what is company up to.
    they even threaten anyone with lawsuit for calling them as scam.

    Here are some webpage to know more about this company

    I had follow Grace's advice, filed a Police Report and Ignore the letter.

    A variation of those contractors who send official-looking letters to HDB flats, hoping to trick old folks into doing unnecessary works.

    1,000 charges, no wonder it's been more than a year and they're still operating. Wonder why they didn't do something (e.g., file an injuction?) to prevent them from operating in the meantime.

    Singapore, 4 Feb 2015 – The Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority
    (ACRA) has brought a further 1,000 charges against the company known as Data
    Register Pte Ltd (previously known as “Company Register Pte Ltd”) for issuing
    business correspondence in October and November 2013 which did not state its
    company name and registration number. These 1,000 charges are in addition to the
    earlier 104 charges brought against the company in January 2014.

    The Paypal payment option makes it seem not legit to me...English is not perfect also, which is another red flag. "Cheque should be ... made to our ..."

    There is always one of this scamming scumbag that comes along to try and con or victimize the gullible ones.

    Anyone that pops out of the blue to offer money for no reason or demand to take money for no good reason, always subject it to some fact checking no matter how official it looks or sound.

    To stop them, the authority can step in and advise people in such situation to ignore it and refer any demand to them. Let them claim from the authority. If you have the authority behind you, there is more tricks to play.

    I think the news reports are exactly what the govt did to warn.

    Just wondering, why nobody take actions on this matter since 2013?

    is it they are just small ikan bilis, not worth the efforts,
    or somebody behind them is untouchable?
