More details about customs fraud
Until recently, customs fraud was an overlooked area of fraud. More recently, customs fraud is gaining the attention of the government and it is starting to pay large whistleblower rewards for reporting customs fraud.
A company commits customs fraud by submitting a false statement to reduce the amount of payment owed to the government on imports. In other words, it does not pay the correct import duties or custom’s fees when importing products into the United States. The two most common customs fraud schemes where rewards are available include:
- misclassifying or undervaluing products subject to import duties, and
- misstating the country of origin in order to avoid anti-dumping duties
