Overseas fraud: Fake ECOWAS🚫

05/03/2021 VIS TEAM

⚠️Suppliers and Factories beware!

An organization has forged the identity of the organization Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to scam foreign companies. It is suspected that they created a fake website as ECOWAS and contacted us/other factories or suppliers to broker him/his team a supplier of face masks. They placed a large order with a value of up to 37 million USD (details as attached Contract) and offered to pay 100% of the order value. However, we – VIS a.k.a the 3rd party was suspecting when they asked the supplier to pay the attorneys’ rent in advance- which appointed by that fake organization to sign the contract on behalf of the supplier for ~$12,000 because the two parties cannot meet face-to-face due to the epidemic situation.

We then did research and found some posts that happened in China with other suppliers in China (details as an attached link) https://www.douban.com/group/topic/193432168/


🚨Scam alert: We do not know how many Chinese firms have been harmed. They must be severely punished! We have attached the full information below:
