Here's yet another scam aimed at businesses in France. This one is trying to extort money by making it look like it's compulsory to subscribe to a European directory before getting a TVA number.

I've been helping people who want to start or already have a small business set up in France since 2009. After graduating from a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree, I worked as a senior marketing consultant in the UK and France for various International companies. I worked as a conseillère en création d'entreprises (senior business advisor) for BGE here in France and run this independent business on a daily basis.
