FRAUD WARNING – Be aware of attempted frauds using misleading information

scam alert

SCAM ALERT: COVID-19 FRAUD ACTS USING THE VGLOVE BRAND

The COVID-19 pandemic has created an unprecedented demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) worldwide. VGlove‘s examination and surgical gloves are used all over the world by healthcare suppliers, industrial operators and everyday end-users looking for protective equipment for themselves and others from the rise of COVID-19.

This enormous demand, therefore, has also led to a spread in elaborate fraud schemes seeking to criminally make money of our clients and customers. These misleading practices promise counterfeit versions of VGlove gloves with fraudulent product registrations, certificates, and/or test reports that do not meet VGlove’s quality standards. The most common tactics of those scams are using social engineering techniques, including “spoofing,” by fraudulently using VRG Khai Hoan employee names, logos, brands and/or look-alike VRG Khai Hoan emails.

We caution our customers to look out for fraud schemes, especially concerning the VGlove nitrile examination gloves, VGlove powder-free latex examination gloves, VGlove powdered latex examination gloves and VGlove Sterile surgical latex gloves . VRG Khai Hoan is aware of fraud schemes using these leading brands and is working to protect our clients and end-users.

COMMON SIGNS OF POTENTIAL FRAUD ACTS

  • Requests for the urgent transfer of funds, especially payment in advance before any real product inspection
  • Start with legitimate procedure then make last-minute changes to payment instructions
  • Promises of readily available stock for immediate shipment and delivery with enormous unreal quantity.
  • Inability to explain the origin of products supposedly being sold.
  • Sellers without any documents and original footage of product or product sample.
  • Suspiciously low pricing when compared to similar product listings, often come along with urges to make advance payment
  • Offers of huge product quantities available without any reasonable evidence of large enough cargo space.

HOW TO ENSURE YOU RECEIVE VGLOVE PRODUCTS

Important steps for buyers need to take to ensure the offer and products they intend to purchase are legitimate:

  • Request product samples
  • Request a Standard Operating Procedure and evaluate with legal consulting service
  • Avoid making payments prior to delivery

Avoid fraudulent VGlove websites and contacts with signs below:

  • Sites with counterfeit information, cloned user interface and/or lookalike domain, that lead to fake contact numbers or emails for fraudulent purposes.

 

Cloned website user interface, with fake email, phone number and domain
Counterfeit domain, email and phone number

 

 

 

Counterfeit domain, phone number

 

 

  • Links in emails that redirect you to another lookalike domains and/or lookalike email address

 

 

  • Cheap offers that are actively sent do not derive from previous requests from customers.

 

  • Lookalike VRG Khai Hoan employee email address offer OTG products outside of Vietnam.

 

 

 

  • Fake contracts lead to deposit funds to an individual’s bank account.

 

WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU FIND INSTANCES OF SCAMMER

If encountered with fraudulent or suspicious offers to purchase VGlove products, attempts to impersonate VRG Khai Hoan’s employee, or other unauthorized activity related to VGlove’s brands, please immediately stop all/any transactions with that person.

To help stop the widespread presence of fraud that trying to persuade customers to make transaction to their bank account, it is important to gather as much detail as possible regarding the identity and contact information of the scammer(s), specifics around the offer being made, bank account information and any documents or other supporting evidence. Report the fraud to law enforcement or other government institutions.

    Dear Sirs,
    I asked for a sample order by the fake email you pointed out, but since the transfer destination name was an individual name, when I inquired if there was an account name of VRG KHAI HOAN, They sent the name of the courier company.
    I can also send you an email with those proofs. Please let us know if necessary.
    We want to do business seriously. I’m at a loss as to where to order. Can you tell me as soon as possible?
    The quantity of this order is enormous because it is all for Japanese listed companies and the Japanese Ministry of Defense.
    We are putting together multiple orders.
    Thank you for your cooperation.
    Best Regards.

    • VRG Khai Hoan says:

      Dear Mr. Yuji Kumagawa.
      Currently, we do not provide direct sample delivery to our customers. You can contact our distributors or buy products from our local genuine point of sale. We supply products with uniform quality standards around the globe, so you can be assured of the similarities between the genuine product you buy locally and the product in our factory.

  2. Takeshi Kaneshiro says:

    Thanks for information, I was about to be scammed by some who claimed to be foreign distributor of Vglove.

  3. James Madison says:

    Very useful article !!! I was so close to be scammed by someone with fake email address that tried to look similar to the real one. He offered me surprisingly cheap price so I feel suspicious and go for a quick research. Luckily I found this one.

  4. Lucy Tran says:

    Dear VGR Khai Hoan,
    Can you quote MOQ for purschasing from factory and price so we can get POF ready, we ask the bank in Vietnam of POF, they only offer Bank Statement , is this ok for you. Thanks

    • VRG Khai Hoan says:

      Dear Mr. Tran
      At the moment we are having our production lines fully ordered and therefore we don’t have plan to receive more purchase order right now. Please leave your contact here, and we will put you in the waiting list so our sales department can take care of your request when we are able to.
      Best regards

    We are interested in buying nitrile gloves in quantities of 2 containers per week

    We got an offer from Akarma Beeher. Their intermediary is Jersild Roberts from India. Is this a serious supplier or a scammer?

    • VRG Khai Hoan says:

      Hello Mr/Ms. Marta
      At the moment we don’t have foreign authorized supplier, however that seller still may be able to sell genuine VGlove products as long as they can provide the Certificate of Origin from VRG Khai Hoan JSC.
      Best regards.

    • VRG Khai Hoan says:

      Dear Mr. Marinov.
      Our full production capacity for this year has been ordered out, so we are not accepting new orders soon. Therefore, any offers claimed to be from our factory, with transferable SBLC payment terms at this moment are unreliable.
      Thanks, and best regards.

  15. sheikh kamaluddin says:

    Dear VRG Khal Hoan team,
    I am in touch with a company named WHITE GLOVE LIMITED in UK and they have offered me $5/boxes CIF Dubai price for 200 ctn only , can you please confirm whether this is genuine price or phishing effort.

  16. sheikh kamaluddin says:

    Dear Team,
    I was offered $5 per box by WHITE GLOVE LIMITED UK for a very small order of 200 cartons of nitrile gloves only CIF Dubai. Can you please confirm me whether it is genuine price or phishing effort?
    Regards

    • VRG Khai Hoan says:

      Dear Mr. Sheikh
      Although we can’t control how people decide their pricing, 5$ CIF Dubai looks suspicious because it is way too low compared to the market price. Please ensure your financial safety by using inspection services and no payment in advance.
      Best regards.

  17. Lim Kian Hin says:

    Dear Sir , am asking if you had given the letter of authorization to AMMMEX PROFFESSIONALS.
    THIS INDIVIDUAL can send this letter issued by KHAI HOAN JOINT STOCK COMPANY to perform all duties and responsibilities as a authorized representative. duly stamped and signed. Please advise where I can send this letter to be verified.

  18. Ted Park says:

    Dear VRG,
    Do you have VGR(Factory) Thailand, of the Vglove product line?
    I thought V glove is in Vietnam only.
    Thank you,

    • VRG Khai Hoan says:

      Dear Mr/Ms. Ted Park.
      At the moment, VRG Khai Hoan JSC only has factories and distributors in Vietnam. All the claims about foreign factory/product line should be unreliable and very likely for fraudulent purposes.

      Best regards.

    Do you have distributors in Europe ?

    This is Dear Laura from Japan. We’re working together with Mr. Takeshi Akita of JOC. I and Mr. Takeshi Akita visited your headquarter in Binh Duong Province in December 24, 2020. I met MR. lAM THONG and somebody else there. We bought your V.Glove to supply to Osaka Prefecture. The problem is we couldn’t deliver 10,000,000pcs but 2,100,000pcs only to be in time for End of March 2021, which was their dead line. We got your officilal letter to explain the delay shipment. However, we got cancellation for the rest of the quantiy in spite of your assistance. Now we’re asking JOC to refund the amount for the rest of the quantity, 7,900,000pcs. Without the refund from JOC, we’re going to sue JOC. Mr. Takeshi says he should get back the amount from you. I want to communicate with the right person in your company to discuss about this issue in order to save him out of hot water. Your prompt reaction will be highly appreciated.
