Easy Pages is a fairly new company and stopECG are still compiling information and advice on them and on how to complain if you feel mislead
Easy Pages mails forms from Valencia in Spain, however the company offices are in London and the firm is clearly UK based. StopECG has received complaints that the forms are misleading; there are also complaints on some East European websites relating to easy Pages Ltd.
For this reason we are currently recommending that complainants deal with the UK bodies responsible.
Advice if you have signed in error
If you have signed in error and dispute Easy Pages demands for money or, if you simply receive a form in the post and consider it deceptive you should write to the UK bodies responsible and file a complaint.
We are not advising that you write to the Spanish authorities at this time but the advice may change, please bookmark this page and check back occasionally

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) deals with complaints of misleading advertising, they have powers to prevent UK firms from undertaking deceptive practises. When writing to the ASA it will help if you explain how you feel the form to be misleading.

Research and background
The first form forwarded to stopECG was in March 2006, (the same month as Easy Pages registered with Companies house in the UK), it is full of comical typing errors and to be quite honest we discarded it as a joke. (see form 1 Below). This form gave the domain address http://www.easy.eu again comical, as the .eu domains were in fact unallocated at this time. It appears Easy Pages missed out on http://www.easy.eu and this domain now has nothing to do with the guide.
The form was sent in the form of a PDF attachement to an email. Analysis of the email headers conducted at the time revealed that the form was emailed from Spain but that an account at freenet.de (In germany) was used to forward the message to its fiinal recipient in the Czech Republic.
Other Contact details on the March 2006 form are:
EASY PAGES - Duqued e Mandas 45 G 13 - 46019 Valencia - SPAIN
Fax: +34-9632 94 447
Example 2 below is copied from http://travelguide.cpress.cz/press.asp?lngTextboxID=264
a Czech site warning about its misleading nature, it appears to date from 2007.
Note the layout and misspelling or European as Eupean remain the same, however there are new contact details:
THE EUROPEAN www REGISTER, EASY PAGES LTD.,
P.O. BOX 12166 Apdo, 46012 Valencia, Spain.
And a new website
a whois on www.easypages.tv (25th Nov 2007) gives the following info:
Iskender oguz Ozer,
duque de mandas 45
Valencia, 46019, ES
Note the address is the old Valencian Address from March 2006, however the email given is on a German provider, (email@example.com) this Iksender certainly gets around! It may be coincidence, but freenet.de was identified in the headers of the original spam email we recieved in march 2006.
More interesting is a visit to the company website www.easypages.tv
where under 'company info' the following details are listed (26th November 2007)
EASY PAGES LTD.
Director: Iskender Oguz ÷zer
95 Wilton Road
Tel: +44- 20 714 779 XX (The Number given by Easy Pages is not thier own, it belongs to a UK Govt. department)
Fax +44- 20 808 250 42
Yes that email is indeed from the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, heís still travelling
There is another domain name that Easy Pages has registered but not used, easyp.co.uk
And the Whois on that (26th Nov 2007) gives different info:
UK Public Limited Company, (Company number: 5746232)
Apdo. 12166 Benimaclet, Valencia, 46020, ES
Thatís the second Spanish address, seen on the 2007 forms. However a query of UK companies house clears the matter up.
Name & Registered Office:
Easy Pages Ltd
95 Wilton Road
Company No. 05746232
This is now a UK company
Examples of Forms
First let us look at the text above the part where company details are inserted / Modified on forms mailed bt Easy Pages and Intercable Verlag AG.
Easy Pages 2006
Intercable Verlag, 2004
Can you spot the difference??
The main body of the forms does differ, Intercable sends forms with the company info pre-filled and a space to modify it. Easy Pages forms were emailed, with a set of lines for the recipient to insert their company info. Below this area is small print that causes so much distress, let's see if there are any similarities here?
Easy Pages 2006
Intercable Verlag, 2004
StopECG would not wish to accuse Easy Pages of Plagerism but there are a couple of points of note here
We are still compiling information on this company and need better scans of the contracts, if you can help, please email details
