We would like to inform you that the Value Brand has been found to be used in various internet SCAMS of late.
Value is doing all we can once these are reported to prevent this from happening however as you know in this day and age with the technology out there it is almost impossible to stop all these targeted attempts. As such we urge you to take note of the e-mail below (Example 1) and the letter (Example 2) that was attached to it for reference.
Value will never send an e-mail like this to our customers or even potential customers. Should you receive something similar to this please advise our call centre or your assigned customer relations manager immediately for us to be able to take action.
On the below sample we have requested the domain used (valueexpresscourier.com) to be blocked as it is not a Value LTD owned domain, any other instances of this nature we will treat in exactly the same way. Further to this, a case for fraud has been logged with the Cyber Crimes unit for investigation.
We appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
