Urgent Fraud Warning
A number of recyclers have recently fallen victim to fraud. In particular, many recyclers have received fraudulent orders from the following company:
ISHMEL (ISHMAEL) LLC.
67 NEWHOOK RD
BAYONNE, NJ 07002
This company has ordered thousands of dollars’ worth of parts from auto recyclers, asking for the orders to be shipped to an address different from the billing address (at a freight dock in Virginia). After the parts were delivered (and irretrievable), ISHMEL, LLC challenged the payment and the recyclers were issued a chargeback.
If you receive contact from this business, send all pertinent information to Marcus Ivey, a Secret Service agent working on the case, at 254-741-0576 or email@example.com. Please also contact ARA at Kelly@a-r-a.org.
If you fall victim to fraud from this or any other company, contact the Secret Service immediately.
The Pennsylvania Automotive Recycling Trade Society recommends the following actions to help protect your business from this type of fraud:
- Verify the cardholder's billing address.
- Do not ship to anywhere except that address.
- Obtain a signed authorization form.
- Get an authorization code.
