    Default Valid PAT, PLI & PRODUB

    Hiya,

    How do you know when someone displays the images on their website that it is genuine and not just a copy and paste with a link?

    Cheers
    Gareth

    Surely it's easy to photoshop business names in?

    ProDub has an online verification facility.

    Insurers and brokers have no issues validating PLI with a quick phone call. Company name and Policy number -> Yay or Nay. No DPA concerns.

    PAT is another kettle of fish because every man and his dog can produce them.... there's no central register or standard format.

    Sorry for the confusion - I meant validating a MDD PLI, PAT or Produb verfication check image?

    Well, they should be click-through links to the validation. Just like most things though, thieves, cheats and low-lifes steal the images and play dress-up!

    If anyone spots someone using the logos and they aren't click through links to their listing on the directory, please report them to us!

    Change the images from time to time... or stick a year number on there with a new design annually. Soon flushes quite a few out... A bit like colour coded tax discs

    I like that idea and think it will work (apart from the link back feature will need adapting)

    Now were have i seen the different style and color idea before
