The NFRN regrets to announce that the buying group Savewell Direct, representing NFRN Direct, has ceased trading with immediate effect.

 

The move follows an internal investigation which has identified that the company has been the victim of an internal fraud that has resulted in significant funds being misappropriated.  The matter has been referred to Durham police.

 

Savewell Direct members are urged to take immediate steps to secure ongoing supply for all products previously purchased via the buying group by making arrangements with suppliers directly.

 

We can confirm the NFRN has not been financially impacted, but due to the current police investigation,  we will be making no further statements.
