FBI Investigating Canadian Scam Targeting U.S. Trucking Companies

The FBI recently began investigating a Canadian scam targeting U.S. businesses including, trucking and logistics companies, where scammers falsify documents to obtain a line of credit.

According to the FBI, the scam works when a fake Canadian business sends falsified documents to a U.S. company and has material shipped by a third party to Canada, never making payment.

In addition to targeting trucking companies, the FBI has said that the scam also has targeted tire retailers, auto parts retailers, construction and lumber retailers.

The fake Canadian businesses are typically based out of the Montreal, Quebec area and have used the names Canstruct Inc., AYA Distributors, Xpress Auto Parts and Point Tech Performer Inc.
