Waarschuwing

Er zijn berichten bij Axpo binnen gekomen dat een bepaalde persoon LEROY ONG zich frauduleus voordoet als een vertegenwoordiger van Axpo Solutions (Axpo) in Nederland. Voor alle duidelijkheid, Axpo werkt niet via handelsagenten en deze persoon vertegenwoordigt Axpo niet.

Deze persoon biedt naar verluidt energiecontracten in naam van Axpo aan met tarieven onder de gangbare markttarieven aan particulieren en het midden- en kleinbedrijf. Axpo biedt geen energiecontracten aan onder de marktprijs en levert bovendien niet aan particulieren of het midden en kleinbedrijf.

En er wordt blijkbaar een voorschot betaling gevraagd voor enkele maanden energielevering. Axpo zal nooit via een tussenpersoon een voorschot vragen. Voor de volledigheid verwijst Axpo naar haar officieel bevoegde vertegenwoordigers zoals gepubliceerd in de KvK (www.kvk.nl).

Mocht u door deze persoon benaderd zijn met voormelde voorstellen, vragen wij u aangifte te doen bij de politie.

Warning

Axpo has received reports that a person, LEROY ONG, is fraudulently pretending to be a representative of Axpo Solutions (Axpo) in the Netherlands. For the avoidance of doubt, Axpo is never represented by sales agents i.e. this person does not represent Axpo.

This person allegedly offers in the name of Axpo energy contracts with below-market rates to individuals and small and medium-sized enterprises. Axpo does not offer energy contracts with below-market rates and moreover does not supply private individuals or small and medium-sized enterprises.

An advance payment is apparently requested for a few months of energy supply. Axpo will never ask for an advance payment through an intermediary. For completeness Axpo refers to the list of its published representatives on the Chamber of Commerce (www.kvk.nl).

If this person has approached you with proposals as mentioned hereabove, we kindly ask you to report it to the police.

Axpo redeems the Guarantees of Origin or Certificates of Origin on the Dutch certificates register CertiQ.
