Hello
Forget dealing with such entities, Dunn and Bradstreet and Credit Savvy are reputable companies.
ANY company demanding payment and providing half truths about your credit ratings are only fluffing the figures to get money out of you and it is a scam.
It is fraud, you can speak with the police in that respect.

I wish to help you in this situation.

Age, This morning I received a phone message to my secretary
This morning I received a phone message to my secretary allegedly from Dunn and Bradstreet saying I had a copyright infringement on an image on my website that belonged to Getty images. (The website is at least five years old.) I rang, quoting the reference number, and an Indian gentleman answered (called Amit) and demanded I pay him over $1000 straight away. I protested I didn't have that sort of money and he offered a 20% discount as long as I paid straight away and gave him my credit card details. I said I couldn't afford that either and he asked what I could afford, then said if I gave him my CC details he could OK it with his supervisor. I refused saying I would get back to my website designer and see if it had already been paid. This Amit guy is supposedly going to email me an invoice. Is this a scam please? … read more
