  1. Received an invoice today for $ 991.69.
    We have never heard or purchased anything from TOP TIER CHEMICALS.
    This invoice looks legit, but we have a system in place that requires a PO on all purchases.
    Other folks may pay it with out question & then these guys get a 1K check! That’s NOT right!
    I posted a comment on the New York Atty General webpage. I don’t know how much they can do, but it’s worth the email.

    1. Hopefully a government official or agency will get involved in shutting this scam down. We agree, some companies will instantly pay the invoice without question. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Received an invoice dated 10/4/21 for $991.69.
    We have never heard of or ordered from this company. We are a small company in Iowa and do not pay any invoices that aren’t approved by the purchasing agent. He carefully looked this over and found in small print that it was a “solicitation for an order of goods or services and not a bill”. Going to look into reporting to New York Secretary of State, FBI of New York and the FTC as suggested above. I am sure Top Tier Chemicals is fooling a lot of companies with this scam.
