Believe it or not, even shipping containers are susceptible to scams. Over the last couple of years shipping container scams have been on the increase – mainly due to increased market prices and COVID restrictions that have moved many buying and selling interactions of shipping containers online to avoid physical contact as much as necessary.
Shipping container resellers have recently been the target for scammers here in Australia. An alarming number of buyers across Australia have reported buying shipping containers, only never to receive them, meaning out of product and out of pocket.
Shipping container scammers rely on competitive pricing, reportedly from the biggest names in the shipping container market. Victims of shipping container fraud report being enticed with unbelievably low prices and further convinced by the supposed provider’s legitimate and established names. Customers only realise they’ve been scammed when the containers they have purchased have not arrived.
Firstly, verify the business you are dealing with. Request their current business registration certificate, liability insurance and proof of banking details – if they cannot supply this information then they are likely fraudsters.
