Look Out for Logo to Avoid NSA Scam

07 January 2015

UK – Non-branded correspondence promising free advertising for the National Sheep Association is part of a ruse aiming to extort thousands of euros from organisation supporters.

The National Sheep Association (NSA) has advised those who may have received a hoax form in recent days “not to be fooled.”

Those who fall for the scam could be changed €1,271 per year for three years, “or it’s monetary equivalent in Mexican pesos".

The scam is a repeat of a ploy to extort money via forms offering free advertising in an ‘Expo Guide’ for NSA events without carrying the NSA logo, instead including an address for a company registered in Mexico.

NSA supporters should look out for the logo, according Helen Davies, NSA sheep event organiser.

"Any correspondence NSA sends out is clearly identified with our name, logo and full address, including the postcode,” said Mrs Davies.

“If you receive anything that is not clearly branded as coming from NSA please ignore it. It is very frustrating that these fraudsters continue to use our name to try and fool people and we wish there was a way to stop them.

“Please do not be taken in by the scam and always look out for the NSA logo on all correspondence."
