This pop-up started this afternoon UTC and led us to chase all round looking for registry fixers! the give away clue is in the topic header. The scammers even helpfully convert your hard earned cash into dollars. and in the UK version add on Value added Tax, which (a) you need a turnover of 25,000 to register, then its applies by UK Customs and Excise not IR. and (z) you need to quote your VAT reg number so like registered traders can sell on at a profit and recoup the tax. In little old England we go round in ever decreasing cicles into liquidation!
