Scam Alert
June 6, 2016

Have You Received an Email Offering a Solution to Avoid Anti-Dumping Duties? If So, It Could Be a Scam.

Sample text of scam email:

Dear purchasing manager,

We have been exporting for many years from china, especially USA and Canada. If you need this product, please tell me, so I can quote you.

Please do not worry about dumping duties. This order will be operated through the intermediary trade. We will send the goods to a third country; the forwarder will repack our goods for export with other company title from that third country. It is a legit business.

Contact Us,

Sales Representative
