MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company S.A. (MSC) wishes to inform members of the public of a scam using fake MSC websites across Australia and New Zealand.
The scam involves used vehicles, motorcycles, caravans and boats being advertised for sale through trading websites and local newspapers. Once a potential buyer contacts the scammers, they are advised that the goods are being held by MSC and can be shipped free of charge to the buyer.
Mediterranean Shipping Company is not involved in the scam and has informed the relevant authorities to open an investigation. MSC is also taking action to have any fake MSC websites closed down immediately.
