Seeking Victims in Mass Marketing Fraud Investigation

The FBI is seeking potential victims of a mass marketing fraud. Victims received solicitations from one of several companies (listed below) between November 2020 and November 2021. These solicitations ranged from $500 to $2,000 for cleaning product and/or PPE materials and requested that physical checks be mailed to either Rochester, New York, or Southeast Florida (Boca Raton/Fort Lauderdale).


The following companies sent the solicitations:

Americas Best Chemicals
Easton Chemical Products
Nationwide Chemicals
North Atlantic Supply Company
Office Outlet USA
Safety Supply Center
Top Tier Chemicals
Union Gloves
United Chemicals Company


If you were fraudulently charged invoices for services you did not request or receive between November 2020 to November 2021, please complete this brief questionnaire. Your responses are voluntary but would be useful in the federal investigation and to identify you as a potential victim. Based on the responses provided, you may be contacted by the FBI and asked to provide additional information.

If you still have a copy of the solicitation that requested you to mail payment, please email a copy of it to FalseInvoiceBF@fbi.gov.

The FBI is legally mandated to identify victims of federal crimes that it investigates and provide these victims with information, assistance services, and resources.
