June 15, 2008: Eshed Diam Limited owned by Avraham Eshed and Ladd Diamonds Inc owned by Joseph Ladd are respected RapNet members and are not to be confused with the companies below.

We are aware that Sam Clifford of Bragar Business of Geneva, Switzerland has been responding to RapNet buy requests and/or contacting other RapNet members and has received payment without delivering diamonds. As far as we know this company has now misrepresented themselves as both Eshed Diamond Group and more recently as Laad Diamonds Inc (not RapNet members).

The modus operandi is for Clifford/Bragar to pose as sellers, negotiate terms of sale and then request funds to be sent to Bragar Business in Switzerland with bank account number 65251 at Bank Cramer, Lugano Branch, Switzerland.  As soon as funds are received, all contact with the sellers is broken off. 

We urge all RapNet members to be very cautious and to please contact us if they come across any person or company who they feel may be acting fraudulently. Please check RapNet member credentials when transacting with members you may not know.

WARNING: All RapNet members must keep their password and user name private and not share with anyone else to avoid unscrupulous people abusing the RapNet community. To change your password, please click here or contact customer service on +1 702 893 9400.
