|1 - Forged Bill of Lading Scam
This type of fraud attempts to take advantage of a fake bill of lading, which looks almost unrecognizable from an original, aiming toward the unlawful acquisition of the cargo
Such a fraud requires a lot of information gathering on account of the fraudsters, such as a copy of the actual bill of lading to ensure forging is believable. The actual ship
owner and actual receiver of cargo are then left to pick up the pieces as the thieves escape detection with the contents of the cargo itself.
You should always make sure you are aware of the chain of custody when it comes to bills of lading. Check local shipping agents as they will need to make sure all
documentation is genuine and actual. If you encounter repeating errors in documents or inconsistencies, you should put a halt to any shipping operations with the client in
question until the situation has been investigated or uncovered as fraudulent.
2 - Fake Cargo Sale Scam
In this case the fraudsters will attempt to create genuine bills of lading that emulate the real thing as closely as possible, even down to copying corporate logos and
document styles as well as even including a large portion of real shipping details.
The fraudsters will appear to be very well informed about the nature of the cargo being shipped. They may even know the trading pattern of the vessel in question, giving
details about the route and possible cargo so they can make the transaction as close as possible to appearing legal.
They will offer to sell cargo that is supposedly on board the vessel; however, the fraudsters will attempt to seek a buyer for their phantom cargo by either obtaining direct
payment or via a Letter of Credit.
You should keep in mind that a lot of social engineering and research is needed for a scam of this kind. You may need to do some serious checks to catch the offending
party in their tracks. One of the most common things about a scam of this kind is the fact that the deal offered is often way too good to be true, giving a major discount
compared to the usual market prices.
3 - Trojan Container Scam
This type of fraud most often uses the premise that the container in question has a specific type of cargo within, when in fact the contents are quite different.
You can experience a great number of issues with it, ranging from smuggled goods to immigrants, illegal drugs, and even downright trash meant to emulate the weight of
the listed goods in question.
The carrier often risks criminal charges, fines, detention or worse. You should do whatever you can to check cargo manifests as well as the contents of the cargo containers
themselves to avoid scams of this kind at all costs.
1. Cargo of plastic shipped for recycling contained a small amount of used diapers
2. Cargo of rolls of textiles contained smuggled cigarettes
3. A 40 foot box contained 21 illegal immigrants + 2 People Smugglers from Fujian consigned to Los Angeles
4. Various methods to hide drugs
5. Waste and rubbish, or other redundant material to give the impression of [x] tons weight, but the real goods
were never shipped, but were paid for.
