electronic documentation

We have been alerted to a number of cases where e-mail correspondence has been sent to the master of a vessel from someone purporting to be the new owner of cargo and asking for information.

Members are advised to take utmost care in ensuring that such contacts are legitimate and that the receivers of any information about cargo on board are verified against correspondence or documentation in the owner's possession.
