We have discovered that a company by the name of Swancare Metal Trading is involved in cheating the Copper Scrap, Copper Millberry Scrap and other metal scrap products buyers around the world.
There are Copper Scrap contracts floating in the market and around many countries in the world. We would like to warn everyone to beware of these fraudsters.
The address which they use is :-
Seller : SWANCARE METAL TRADING
ADDRESS: 1772 UNIT 304 L MANSION, DIAN STREET, PALANAN, MAKATI CITY, PHILIPPINES
TEL # +63 2 5129619 FAX # +63 2 6331983
The address is false and there is no company by this name on the above address and the telephone / fax numbers are non-existant.
What you see above is the Stockpile Ceritificate of Inspection that was given to one of the buyers as a supporting proof for the commodity. We investigated with our team in Manila that the address mentioned by Cargosys in the certificate belongs to some other company and the telephone number mentioned is non-existant.
Cargosys has mentioned that the commodity is inspected at the Swancare Metal Trading warehouse, apparently the entire address is fake.
( Kindly note that we have received an updated information that currently the same scammers are using MILESCRAP METAL TRADING as business name with address Level 40, PB com Tower,6795 Ayala Avenue,Courner V A , Rufina street, Makati City, Philippines. )
Our team in Manila found out that there was a company by the name of NIRVANA METAL TRADING which has used same addresses to cheat some Copper Scrap buyers. Last few months the Scammers have used ZEPHYR METAL TRADING as company name with the same addresses to cheat people.
