PJSC «RussNeft» reports about the reveald facts of fraud connected with illegal use of the Company’s and its subsidiaries’ names in oil and oil products sales business.
Thus, a number of frauds send commercial offers
on bitumen, mazut and other oil products sale by e-mail, allegedly on behalf of top managers of «RussNeft» or from feigned authorized agents. Such offers were received by small-scale trading companies in India, China, Great Britain, Italy, Latin America.
To make the information contained in the offers
(file 1, file 2, file 3, file 4) convincing, the frauds use, among others, e-mail addresses bearing certain similarity to the real ones.
Addresses used by frauds:
and licenses of Department of Energy, certificates of Chamber of Commerce and Industry
are also often used.
If the buyers express their intention to enter the transaction, they are offered to make prepayment
on some assumed pretext. Immediately after the funds are received at their account the pseudo sellers disappear
from the buyers’ field of vision. In a number of cases contacts with potential buyers are made on behalf of some people, who pretended to be the Company’s authorized agents for oil and oil products sales.
