The trick of b@n your business@net
The company sends official-looking forms, which are headed „VAT Identification Number“ and „Register related to the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)“. The recipient is first requested to check the company information and confirm its correctness or to improve or supplement incorrect or missing information. On the right side there is a barcode. In the middle of the form, data of the recipient’s company are pre-entered, but some fields are still free and should be filled in. Finally, we ask you to check the correctness of the data and to confirm it with a legally binding signature. Most recipients overlook the small print in the form. It is stated here that an amount of € 711 is due for publication, payable in advance and annually. It also states that the contract is valid for three years and will ever be renewed for a further year if it is not terminated three months before expiry. With a signature the recipient should receive over 2000 € for what we consider to be a worthless advertisement.

b@n your business@net operates a directory under the domain v-r-e.eu in which the companies that return the signed form are finally entered. In our opinion, this is a completely irrelevant directory, which is not suitable for attracting new customers to a company. It goes without saying that b@n your business@net presents the relevance of its directory in a completely different way.
