Chemicals enable modern life and living. They’re used to clean, disinfect, run machines, beautify, and treat diseases, to name a few. Expectations of chemicals and their effects are also evolving, which is why we’re focusing on developing a green chemistry offering, particularly in home and personal care where consumers are demanding improved sustainability and transparency from leading brands.
FRAUDULENT CREDIT APPLICATIONS
AECI is aware of numerous attempts by a fraudster(s), operating under the name Andy Hayes, to open an account and apply for credit with various third party suppliers, purportedly in the name of AECI Limited (“AECI” or the “Company”).
As part of this scheme, the perpetrator(s) attach to emails forged ID documents of Company Board members, financial statements, a bank cheque, and other fraudulent supporting documents.
AECI is aware of at least one-third party that has suffered losses as a result.
The fraudulent activity was reported to the SAPS some time ago and is under investigation.
Please be extremely vigilant. Should you encounter or become aware of the above activities, or similar, you are urged to contact AECI’s Iwan Schutte (Group Internal Audit Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org) or Wynand Strydom (Group Company Secretary, email@example.com), tel +27 (0)11 806 8700, before approving a credit account in the name of AECI or any of its businesses/entities.
