ANTI-FRAUD ALERT

Dear colleagues!

Recently, it has been noticed an increase in fraud attempts carried out by individuals whose method is to steal monies and the corporate identities of shipping companies and agencies. As part of the fraud attempt, the perpetrators register a domain address mimicking company, misspelling the domain address slightly to make it look like the genuine one, then sending fraudulent emails using the new domain address.

Example:

Genuine address: office@mwship.com

“Fake” address: office@mwshlp.com

Using the fraudulent email address, the perpetrators swap the companies bank account with the aim to steal the payment. The perpetrators appear to be knowledgeable of the shipping industry and, in some cases, may even have access to genuine or at least genuine-looking documents originating from company and providing supporting documentation in order to persuade payer to make a payment to fraudulent bank account.

Please, if you receive any unusual messages, or any messages advising that our bank account details have changed verify these with your usual contact at Morwenna Shipping Company Ltd. Rather than replying to a suspicious email, we kindly request you to contact us by phone to verify that the sender is in fact Morwenna Shipping Company Ltd or any of its group companies. Please bear also in mind that our communications will come only from our official domain  @mwship.com.
