Heliospectra AB, an intelligent lighting technology company for greenhouse and controlled plant growth environments, announced that two orders from Turner Construction, which has previously been disclosed, have now been cancelled due to fraudulent activities.
Heliospectra announced the first order from Turner Construction on the 23rd of April, with an order value USD $228 000, and the second order on the 11th of May, with an order value of USD $270 000. While processing the orders it was discovered that the orders were not legitimate, and a full investigation, together with the US Authorities, was formed to recover the lights.
All lights from the two orders were successfully recovered, apart from 12 pieces, resulting in very little damage for the company. The persons found responsible for the fraud have no connection to either Turner Construction or Heliospectra, and are in police custody.
