DIPS FRAUD ALERT
A Distribution Industry Partnership Scotland member company has received a call from a person pretending to be from a Scotch Whisky company. It appears that the caller claimed that their company is in the middle of a systems changeover and that their server has failed leading to a significant loss of data. The caller advises that as a result they are contacting suppliers to establish what invoices were outstanding and then asks for the details to be e-mailed promptly to: cortes-wmckay@financier. com
Members are advised to be alert to such attempts. It is not clear what the purpose of obtaining this information is. Members might wish to consider notifying HMRC under the terms of the Memorandum of Understanding if it is believed there is an attempt to commit excise fraud. Scenarios such as this might be considered under the risk indicators members are recommended to consider under the Excise Due Diligence provisions (see SWA Due Diligence best practice guidance issued on 19.5.15).
In this instance, the two legitimate Scotch Whisky companies affected contacted each other to determine the authenticity of the approach.
