The Bulgarian Industrial Association warns of activation and diversification of frauds based on "inclusion" in various European and world business registers. Typically, Bulgarian companies receive an e-mail or through regular mail an envelope containing an invitation for joining European or world business reference books for obtaining a European business or VAT number. The invitation text suggests unpaid benefits. Somewhere in small print it is indicated that the signing of this application binds the company to pay a considerable amount for a year, two or three. There are a lot of fraudulent forms, blanks and fake applications, and almost all of them have European P.O. boxes.
