Some grantees have recently experienced a scam regarding renewal of a DUNS number. Your agency may receive an email, regular mail or telephone notice stating that it is time to renew your DUNS number.
The fraudulent link is https://getregistrations.com/getstarted and the telephone numbers are 1-844-392-8983 (internationally) 001-727-312-3123.
The fraudulent website appears to look like an official website and already has possession of the subgrantee's CAGE number, DUNS number and agency name and address. Once an individual enters the website they are asked to submit money for the renewal cost.
There is never a cost to obtain or annually renew a DUNS number.
Only use the website links and telephone numbers listed below to obtain or renew a DUNS number, or ask questions regarding your DUNS number.
The website listed below is the Dun & Bradstreet Request Service.
