Massive Internet Fraud in Dubai, Lots Of Companies Are Being Effected

Businesses in the Highlands and Islands are being asked to look out for fraudsters from Dubai. Northern Constabulary are asking companies to be particularly vigilant when receiving orders for products via their online ordering systems. A company in the Tain area has been targeted twice this year by fraudsters believed to be operating from Dubai. Reports say the fraudsters will place a large order for the product via the online order facility on the company's website. They will then attempt to overpay the company by an enormous amount, usually in the region of £40,000. Police say, following the deliberate error, the fraudsters will then highlight it with the intention of the company refunding the difference. If successful they will have defrauded the company of £40,000.

Police Request Companies are Vigilant in the Following Areas:-

  • Businesses purporting to be from Dubai that use personal yahoo e-mail address.
  • They usually state that they will arrange their own shipping.
  • Their e-mails are written in broken English.
  • The telephone numbers are withheld.

Anybody with concerns should report the matter to their local police station or via Crimes toppers on 0800 555 111.
