CASPIAN OIL AND GAS
ATLANTIC PETROLEUM COMPANY purchase two vessels loads with LNG, the CYGNUS PASSAGE holding 50,000 mts and the MERIDIAN SPIRIT holding 65,000 mts. Caspian Oil and Gas sent us the Bill of Lading which included the Q&Q from INTERTEK, however;
After we received the full Bill of Lading we got to looking at both Bills of Lading from both vessels and they were they were both the same. Caspian wanted us to pay a, " 2% DELIVERY GUARANTEE TITLE DEPOSIT" however, we were looking at the Bills of Lading and they were not correct, they did not have the correct Owner listed. After doing more Due Diligence we found out the TeeKay Shipping (Glasgow) Ltd. were the real Owners of both vessels and we brought this to Caspian Oils and Gas' attention which they replied the following;
THANK YOUR FOR YOUR MESSAGE SENT WE HAVE FORWARDED THE MESSAGE TO THE
OOO CASPIAN OIL AND GAS ,WAITING FOR THEIR RESPONDS TO THIS ISSUES. MR.WALTER ONE THING YOU
SHOULD UNDERSTANDS IS THAT THIS SPOT -TTO DEAL YOUR BUYERS IS NOT PAY NO COST OF
PRODUCTS YET TO NO SELLERS UNTILL THERE CONFIRM THE PRODUCTS IN THEIR VESSEL AND ALL DOCUMENTS
BEEN TRANSFERED TO BUYERS INFORMATION (NAMES) ONLY ASK 2% TITLE/GUARANTEE FEES AS TO CHECK
BUYERS IF THERE ARE REAL,SERIOUS AND COMPETENT ENOUGH TO CLOSE TRANSACTION..SPOT SELLERS
IS NEVER THE END-SELLERS THAT IS AWAYS THE CASE OF SPOT-TTO TRANSACTIONS IS TRANSACTIONS THAT IS
VESSELS WILL BE DIVERTED TO A NEW SERIOUS AND COMPETENT BUYERS THAT MAKES IT A SPOT TTO TRANSACTIONS.
As you can read Atlantic petroleum Company, (APC) is not being questioned as a "real serious buyer or not". It would seem this is the first this that is done, point the finger at the Buyer and try to get him to pay the $180,000.00 2% Delivery Guarantee Title Deposit using a fake Bill of Lading. So here are the documents to prove what APC is sharing with you and giving you insight on what to check for to verify the documents before you ever pay anything because you will never get your money back.

As you can see in this email they tell me that they don't send the real documents until they are sure we are real, how do you determine a real Buyer when you send the fake documents? So don't waste your time with CASPIAN OIL AND GAS.
Thank you for your effort towards this transactions,i see you are a good person your
buyers is not real,serious and competent buyers this is the real problems ,I understoods all now.
Mr.walter I have forwarded all your messages also this message below to the sellers OOO CASPIAN
OIL AND GAS their responds is all documents that was issued to you/your buyers are special done that
way as a partial POP all to avoid Buyers not take chances or opportunity to use Sellers full POP for
self interest.As regards the issues of vessels CYGNUS PASSAGE and vesselMERIDIAN SPIRIT,
sellers said there are not ready tp issue a completed Q88 and bill of leading of the two vessels only
when Buyers show that there are real ,serious and competent to close the transactions first buyers
have to burn the invoice of the 2% title Garantee for all documents to change to buyers name and then
sellers will sure of transaction before issuing complete Q88 and other documents to buyers due to so many
bad experiences gotten from the past from unserious and in-competent buyers,so sellers are very careful of fake
Buyers that are only looking documents Q88 and other documents for self interest to collect money from end-Buyers
and Banks. Sellers understood all. For your informations Mr.Walter this two consignments (LNG) is going to other
Buyers that show seriousness and competency to buy products(there have paid for 2% title Guarantee invoices) its big
compitation now, sorry you have lost this allocations its not our fault but yours .Maybe next time or next consignment Allocations
only when you and Buyers can prove your seriousness and competency then we can move forward with transactions
with you/your Buyers.Respond ASWP

WHAT DID INTERTEK SAY?
APC asked INTERTEK to verify the Q&Q Reports to the left here, read for yourselves;
Sorry for the delayed response. I had to contact another business line within Intertek to investigate these documents for you and they just came back with a reply. Upon review it appears that the documents you provided are falsified and were not issued by Intertek. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me. Thank you!

We, APC, did contact NYK LNG SHIPMANAGEMENT - TOKYO, JAPAN, here is what they had to say about the falsified documents being used in conjunction with their vessel;
Dear Mr./Ms. Walter Kurka,
We, as ship owner, can't answer the inquiries related to the sales & purchase of the cargo because we didn't get involved in the sales & purchase contract. Please contact your counter party in the transaction.
NYK Line Tokyo
Bottom line, verify the documents that you receive you may find out that you cargo can disappear and be sold to someone else, or if you have to pay that " 2% DELIVERY GUARANTEE TITLE DEPOSIT" you may just ending up losing it and in this case it was about $180,000.00 USD per vessel.
This has been documented and verified by Walter J Kurka, Owner of Atlantic Petroleum Company.
