Beware Of New Scam: Companies House Users

Beware Of New Scam - Companies House Users - Image of computer screen with word scam on screen. 4th October 2023

There have recently been a number of emails sent to Companies House users from an email address posing as Companies House. The email contains the Companies House logo and threatens that Companies House services will no longer be available from 23rd September unless ‘identification’ is received.


Companies House have warned people ‘Do not reply to the email or open any attachments or click on any links. Delete the email from your inbox, including your deleted items.’


In addition to this, scam telephone calls are asking for late payment penalties, who are accepting £5 payments to hold any further action.


Companies House will not contact you for immediate payment of late filing penalties or request payments to hold an action.


If you believe that you have given out information to a fake email address or phone call then please get in touch with Companies House, or Whitings LLP to help with reporting this.
