Kraslava Services Seven Ltd's leaflets are misleading and may be in breach of the Control of Misleading Advertisement Regulations 1988.

The Advertising Standards Authority ordered the company to cease circulation in July 2004 but the company ignored the ruling.

Our enquiries conclude that the company's registered address and the address of it's director and company secretary are false. This is a contravention of Section 136 (1) of the Companies Act 1989.

We filmed collectors working for Kraslava Services Seven Ltd telling people that they are collecting the clothes for charity.

This, combined with the misleading nature of their leaflets constitutes an offence of Obtaining Property By Deception, under Section 15 of the theft act 1968.

Vehicles
Kraslava Services Seven Ltd used 2 vehicles in summer, autumn and winter 2004.

A blue Transit Van was traced to Yarrow Crescent, Becton, East London in autumn 2004

A white Mercedes was also used in 2002 to collect clothing for another company Olonex. Olonex also used to distribute misleading leaflets.

Storage
Prior to export, the company stored clothing in rented containers at London Container Services, Ferry Lane, Rainham, Essex.

Who's behind the company?
Two former workers of the company named their former boss who is a Lithuanian man, but we were unable to trace him.
