One of the biggest problems in Rotterdam today is securing real tank storage to receive fuel. Fake tank farms are operating and will encourage signing a Tank Storage Agreement (TSA) with them and take your payment for them, called a Tank Storage Receipt (TSR), which could end up in Taiwan or Nigeria. Most tank storage companies in Rotterdam are run by Dutch or Eastern European speaking individuals. If you suspect your tank storage company is not real, verify it on our Rotterdam Tank Storage Blacklist.
The refinery will always verify that your leased storage tanks are clean and ready to receive fuel. This is usually the point where you will find out you submitted a fake TSA with your ICPO to the refinery.
Verify your tank storage company and know how to reach them. When you pay for your Tank Storage Receipt (TSR), fake tank storage companies will take your money and you will never receive fuel. If you can, send your MT103 money wires for payment to bank accounts that are not overseas and to someone you know.
