Mail Fraud Investigation

Mail Fraud Investigation

 

For several years one or more individuals in Canada have been contacting printing companies in the U.S. requesting their services in printing mailings that are sent to US consumers.  Once the print job is complete and the mailings are sent, the suspect/s mail the victim printing company a check that is drawn on a CIBC or BMO (Bank of Montreal) account.  Once deposited the check is returned as “account closed,” or “NSF.”  Attempts to contact the customer fail as they don’t respond to voice messages or emails. 

 

Recently, we believe the targets in this case have been operating under the DBA’s: Direct Market, DMW Direct, API Global Fulfillment, DMG Group Corporation, DMG-Multimedia, Global Media, Slim-Tab, and LipoCitrex.  Historically, we believe they have used the DBA’s: Axera International, BeSlim, Nutrim. 

 

USPIS believes several printing companies have fallen victim in this scheme but may not have reported their loss to law enforcement. We are seeking to identify those victim companies and to speak to them regarding their possible nexus to this investigation.
