Fighting Customs Fraud

The National Council of Textile Organizations set up an online form the industry can use to report suspected customs fraud.

WASHINGTON — The National Council of Textile Organizations set up an online form the industry can use to report suspected customs fraud, available at ncto.org. The Washington trade group will report the information collected to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, which aided NCTO as it designed the form. “Customs fraud has risen to become the number one issue we get calls about from our member companies,” said Mike Hubbard, vice-president of NCTO. “Our members are extremely frustrated because they see high levels of fraud without a corresponding increase in Customs activity.”
