SECO issues new warning about Intercable Verlag AG

In a very brief message posted to their website (English / French / Italian) on 26th October the Swiss state secretariat (seco) advises companies to beware of forms mailed by intercable Verlag AG

The attached PDF states

The Central European Trade Register advertised by Intercable AG is not in any way associated with the cohesion fund contribution provided by the Swiss Confederation for the ten states that joined the EU on 1 May 2004.

Of the Cohesion fund they say

The form and the website refer to the cohesion fund contribution that Swiss Confederation pledged for projects in the nine new EU member countries for a commitment period of five years (for further information see: With the enlargement contribution, Switzerland aims to participate in the reduction of the economic and social disparities within the EU.

They go on to warn that signing the Intercable contract involves a commercial liability and that those who sign will not benefit from the Cohesion fund

The Intercable form they refer appears to have been mailed since July 2007.

Intercable Verlag AG has been using forms that result in complaints for decades and is currently under criminal investigation by the Swiss government. It is part of the Ludenbach stable of guides, many of which have been fined, closed or reprimanded for deceptive advertising.

As always with StopECG blog postings we would welcome a response from Intercable Boss Adrian Wittmer.
