THEFT AND FRAUD ALERT! - SOUTH EAST AREA OF ENGLAND

CITS urge its members to be aware after a hire company in the South East area of England contacted the National Construction and Agricultural Theft Team (NCATT) to report the theft of several pieces of equipment hired to a business called Tazeem Khan Ltd., and subsequently not returned.

The equipment hired:

  • Bobcat E26 3ton excavator - serial no. B5W611276
  • Bobcat E10 1ton excavator  - serial no. B4PD17856  
  • FLTA25 2.5T gas forklifts c/w 4.5mtr mast - serial no. A6V1A02080V
  • Sany SY155u 15ton excavator
  • Kubota KX027-4

Information indicates that these machines were delivered to various locations in Kent and then moved elsewhere. The Kubota and Sany excavators have now been recovered but the other equipment is still missing.

NCATT has reason to believe Tazeem Khan Ltd  is a fraudulent company. Investigations are still ongoing, but we wanted to give all members a heads up in case you have any relationship with or are approached by them.

TAZEEM KHAN LTD
Company number 11267765

This company has now become uncontactable and members are urged to review any hires to them and carry out strong provenance checks against any future hire enquiries.
