Fair guide warning

The article reports that companies should ignore notices from Austrian company Construct Data Verlag AG requesting company details for inclusion in a Fair Guide--or face a bill of pound 2,000. The letter provides details of a supposedly free listing--the firm's name and address--asking companies to complete their contact details and mini profile, with the guide flagged as 'a powerful medium for attracting new customers'. Companies seem to be incorrectly listed against the exhibitions they are to take part in, to encourage them to return the paperwork.
