Dutch bad-debt name-and-shame website publisher accused of payment default

Digital Media Europe: News - Dutch bad-debt name-and-shame website publisher accused of payment default:

"BNR Nieuwsradio, a Dutch radio broadcaster, has reported that Hans van Heertum still owes it €6,000 for radio ads. Dutch financial daily Financieele Dagblad said he has not yet paid the paper €2,000 for a 2003 ad. And De Telegraaf, another daily, claims Mr Van Heertum has other outstanding debts.

Nothing really out of the ordinary, one might add, except that Mr Van Heertum runs a website,, that names and shames bad debtors. also maintains an online database on defaulters, to which debt-collection agencies, bailiffs and other business can subscribe...."
