Fraud concern

EVER since the Internet has been used for personal and commercial communication, the issues of fraud and identity have been ones for concern.

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is currently the victim of an unidentified Internet con man, with the discovery that emails and letters have been circulated involving the misuse of their name.

These emails and letters concern potentially profitable business transactions with people from the West African nation of Togo.

The proposed deal is that, in return for a share of funds, often quoted in the tens of millions of United States dollars, the recipient will provide the offeree access to an Australian bank account. The addressee’s contact details were supposedly obtained from the ACCI, implying a warranty of the offer by the Chamber.

The Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry absolutely and categorically rejects any association with these emails and letters, and says that they provided no such information to anyone.

These emails and letters may appear to be sincere and attractive to people who are inexperienced in business and finance, but in truth the emails and letters are fraudulent and should be treated as such.

Anyone who has received such an email or letter is encouraged not to respond to the document, and to inform their State or Territory Police.
