Have you received an invoice from Universal Books?
17 March 2003
The RCVS has been made aware of a company named Universal Books, of PO Box 36907, London SE6 3YQ which targets various trade sectors, including the veterinary profession, by sending out invoices for a book entitled Handbook of Antibiotics. The book, which supposedly retails at £48.99, does not appear to exist.
Universal Books is in the process of being investigated by local Trading Standards Officers, who have advised veterinary practices simply to dispose of the invoice.
The sender of these invoices should not be confused with limited company, Universal Books Ltd of Kings North Industrial Estate, Hoo, nr Rochester, which is a genuine business supplying cards/books.
