Who we are

Our website address is: https://www.epicentering.com.

EpiCentering is a web-property owned by Scamfree Ltd, a company registered in England and Wales, run by Neil Shearing, Ph.D.

Neil has owned websites since 1997. His first website, scamfreezone.com, was set up in 1997 to help protect people against online scams, and that’s where the name of the website and company come from. Since then Neil has helped thousands of people start their own online businesses before transitioning into helping people more personally to improve their physical and mental health, a subject which was always close to his heart as a scientist with a Ph.D. in breast cancer research.
