Frequently Asked Questions

Why should we participate in ”Protected by BL” programme? It is our decision if we should co-operate with a supplier or buyer and can identify a fraudster ourselves.

The final decision about placing the order or supplying the goods is yours. Our task is to draw your attention to any possible risks in co-operation with a prospective partner, recommend to you the safest ways of work and check your potential supplier or buyer.

There is no secret that when a company receives a very attractive offer it often forgets about any security of the transaction and acts irrationally. These deeds often have serious consequences and are the reason for serious financial losses, not to mention the loss of good name and reputation. Desire to make much money in a short time usually has the opposite effect: loss of money or the goods.

As the company often sees only the positive sides of the co-operation with a new firm (high profitability, new opportunities in a new market or obtaining a serious and reliable partner), we concentrate on security questions and possible risks in every deal. After discussing the circumstances with us the client can analyse the situation from a new angle and choose the safest and most appropriate way of working with a new partner.

One consultation with us will save you thousands of dollars and the cost of participating in the programme cannot be compared with a possible loss in any deal.
