As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a significant increase in demand for gloves and other personal protective equipment (PPE). Scammers have relentlessly approached potential buyers with false claims, attempting to capitalise on the situation.
Beware of these fraudulent acts:
- Claiming to be authorised agents or representatives of Mun Global and Hartalega.
- Claiming to be capacity holders, thus providing large glove volumes.
- Claiming to have stock from hospital allocation, and hence goods need to be transacted via a few parties.
- Eliciting potential buyers to make advance payments to third parties or via an Escrow account.
- Eliciting potential buyers to sign a Non-Circumvention & Non-Disclosure Agreement (NCNDA) with broker/ allocation holders.
- Selling of counterfeit GloveOn and PrimeOn products, which uses fake packaging and gloves, and modified or fake documents, certificates, photographs and videos.
Counterfeit products do not meet standards and pose a threat to the health and safety of glove users. Watch this video to help differentiate between genuine and fake GloveOn products.
