IP Address - Olaf Tank
« on: Wednesday, 10.01.2007 18:47 »
Hello

I am a British Citizen living in Germany.

Today I recieved 2 letters from Olaf Tank stating that I owed them 123 euros as I had registered with a routeplanner website.
I have never registered with any such website and also the Ip address that they quoted is not mine.

The letter says that I must pay within 10 days. This must be a scam.

HAs anyone else had experience of this?

Many thanks
Michelle

Hi Michelle,

every member in this forum strongly believes this to be scam. Their tactic seems to be scaring people into paying, but I have not heard of one single case where they managed to win a court case. If you havenĀ“t actually registered and used their services, I would just write them an email saying so and forget about it.

Hi

Thankyou so much for getting back to me so quickly.
I was a bit worried about it to be honest.

We live on an army estate so I have informed the military police to make them aware of it and so that they can inform people of this scam.

Many many thanks
