Benin Africa fake import company registration
|A new twist on a common criminal operation from Benin, Africa, engages international exporters with false promises of large export orders. These orders are then held up by demands for fees regarding either a fake import company registration or a payment to a fictitious Anti Terrorist Group.
The criminals are extremely persuasive, alternating between compliments and threats, making sure to force the sales agent to invest as much time as possible on the fake contract.
Below are some sample correspondence and fake certificate.
Thanks for sending us the proforma invoice which have been confirmed and approved in our office .
however we shall tender the P/I to our import licence authority for onward approval of the import licence which shall afford us the chance to import from your company for the period of five years.
