Did You Receive an Email Offering a "Solution" to Avoid Antidumping Duties?
Sample text of scam email:
Dear purchasing manager,
We have been exporting for many years from China, especially USA and Canada. If you need this product, please tell me, so I can quote you.
Please do not worry about the dumping duties. This order will be operated through the intermediary trade. We will send the goods to a third country; the forwarder will repack our goods for export with other company title from that third country. It is a legit business.
THIS IS A VIOLATION OF U.S. LAW.
KNOWINGLY ENGAGING IN ACTIVITIES DESIGNED TO EVADE THE PAYMENT OF ANTIDUMPING OR COUNTERVAILING DUTIES IS A FEDERAL CRIME. VIOLATIONS INVOLVING DUTY EVASION MAY RESULT IN CIVIL AND CRIMINAL PENALTIES.
