“Both victims are businessmen who dealt with a company that claimed it could help purchase the test kits from a China-based company.
“After payment was made, the victims did not receive the test kits.”
He added that the victim then checked with the company in China and found out that no orders were made for the test kits.
Scammers can sometimes be very convincing, so please do not fall into their trap. Always be careful and informed!
