Facts and Figures

Be aware of spoofing

Fraud and Scam Alert

We have become aware of fraudulent business propositions by parties who refer to HES International group companies and/or its terminals, employees, names and logos. These fraudulent activities are commonly also referred to as ‘Storage Spoofing’, which is an umbrella term to describe all activities involving the sale of non-existent storage capacity and non-existent stocks of product at storage terminals.

The targets for this type of fraud are national and multinational companies that either operate or are looking for storage facilities in port areas, as well as potential buyers of the products stored at these terminals. The products and storage capacity are offered under false pretences and do not actually exist.In general, this type of business fraud is aimed at obtaining payment or at obtaining invoices, (counter) signed documents and/or email confirmations that could be used in fraudulent business propositions to other targets.    

The Dutch National Cyber Security Centre has made available a list of websites that are implicated in Storage Spoofing. For more information, please visit: https://ferm-rotterdam.nl/blacklist.
