Dear Clive,

 

It has come to our attention over past weeks that some of our valued customers are being approached with (what seems to be) a deliberate attempt to pass-off as AI Global Media Ltd, or one of its portfolio brands.

 

We are sending this message to reassure you that your booking on & is indeed part of AI Global Media. (I can also confirm that the domain ai-publishing.com is also owned and used by the group.)

 

Summarising the experiences of clients who have come forward, we have received the following feedback;

 

–              Out of the blue emails announcing exact replicas of the award titles already bestowed by us at AI Global Media

–              Abrupt demands for upfront payment

–              Failure to deliver goods and services

–              Show a VAT number but are not charging VAT where it is appropriate

–              Very recently incorporated limited company details

–              Faulty website links

–              Virtual office addresses

 

We fully appreciate that some of the above are not concerning on their own and we genuinely believe in open markets and competition, that’s great for all parties – including us! We do however feel it our obligation to alert you to this issue, so that you can at least apply caution to any communications you receive.

 

We are at your disposal if you wish to double-check if any communication links back to us, please feel free to reach out to your usual contact or customer-services@aiglobalmedialtd.com

 

In the meantime, please accept sincere Season’s Greetings from the whole team here at AI.

AI Global Media Ltd
