INTERCABLE IS DEAD!
Following police raids in June 2009 Intercable Verlag was placed in liquidation, This company will not be causing any more problems and the advice below this banner is now of historical interest only. Unfortunately Intercable sold its disputed contracts just before the raids and the new company in Hungary is now writing to some people demanding payment. If you get letters from CEA Kft.

Advice if you are receiving demands for money


To Pay or not to pay

For legal reasons StopECG cannot issue advice either generally or to individuals on the issue of whether you should part with money based on the document you have signed. All we can do is appraise you of the situation as it stands and allow you to make up your own mind. We hope the notes below are of assistance.
  1. Intercable has many companies on its books who have, or are disputing the validity of its contracts.
  2. As far as we can ascertain no one who has refused to pay has ever been taken to court (Except In The Czech Republic). Court action has often been threatened both by the guide and the associated debt collection companies. Threats can be very direct and urgent but in every case we have followed the threats have passed without court action occurring.
Note: The Swiss Government are aware of the activities of Intercable Verlag AG and have posted a warning in several languages
