    If you are afraid, contact your local police. Read through this thread to find more information.

    My opinion that seems to be shared with our authorities is that inaction is better than action.

    Re: Euro / European City Guide Scam

    Thankss for your reply Kgun.....so far I have only received one reminder letter, so maybe if I start getting threatening letters (which seems to be the norm for this company) I can take it further....just feel annoyed at myself for getting conned, I'm not easily duped! There is a group on Facebook too and I have been reading other people's stories, and I think you are right, best to ignore!
    Thanks again
    Joanna

    They will not stop before someone bring them to court.

    Advice:

    1. Do like me, when you get a letter from them throw it in the trash can without opening it and forget them.
    2. Repeat 1 on every letter you get.
    3. I even got their CD and catalogue.
    4. The more than 1 kg catalogue package was opened the same day I travelled to Sweden for shopping.
    5. I threw it in a trash can in Sweden.
    6. I said to my son (that has only one year left on his law study) that I did not want such garbage in Norway.
    7. Keep it in EU where it came form, since they can not handle the problem.
    8. A man from Ireland was threathened on his life. See some of my first posts.
    9. Go to your local police if you are afraid.

    Hi

    I did the same as Joanna41 and today I received the 3rd reminder letter from them.
    I feel a bit stupid since I went for the scam. But after reading this I will not pay. I'll ignore the letters from now on. I just sent them an email asking them to stop sending me letters, but now Im a bit afraid they will harrass me forever. Or threath me.
    I live in norway, so I don't think they will come to my home. Have they done anything like that before??
    Im a bit worried now, since I have kids.

    Kind regards,
    Lady in Oslo.

    Afraid. They should be afraid. Police know about them. The best is as I have said repeatedly. Simply ignore them even if you get a new claim from another country, e.g. like Astria. German police say the same as me. Ignore them.

    I did exactly the same SMH - thought I was just sending a change of details to a free listing. I was worried at first but now I don't care! They have sent me 3 requests to pay, each letter with different bank details (Strange!!!!), I have ignored each letter, I was also sent a "debt collectors" letter...I ignored it, its all filed away for reference. I have since been sent a "1st" invoice for insertion in the next edition of the ECG which I didn't ask for!! Don't be afraid, I have taken comfort in knowing that there are quite a few of us out there who have been taken in by these idiots. Tell your boss what you have done, I did and she was fine, and just do as Kgun says....IGNORE, IGNORE, IGNORE. I have not been called by them yet, but I am ready to hang up the phone when they do.

    Could he be Employed at EuroPean City Scam?

    They have stopped to mail me, so there is less garbage to put unopened in the trash can.
