美商婕斯走私案告破

    1月16日,中央电视台新闻直播间节目报道,广州南沙海关缉私局破获特大跨境电商走私案。走私团伙通过跨境电商与一般贸易的方式,先后走私美国婕斯公司产品货值约7亿美元,折合人民币40多亿元。包括婕斯公司大中华区总裁、台湾人李伟行(Robin Lee)在内的25名犯罪嫌疑人被抓捕,现场查扣涉案货物484万盒,价值20多亿元人民币。目前该案已由缉私部门移送检察机关依法审查起诉。

    美国婕斯公司主要经营以白藜芦醇为原料的保健品、化妆品等所谓的“抗衰老”系列产品,其产品并没有取得在中国的销售资质。

    2015年婕斯公司在上海注册了一家生物科技有限公司,经营范围是财产管理,但并没有产品销售。为使其产品进入中国内地市场,婕斯公司以包税方式委托给香港天一物流公司。香港天一物流公司又找到广州瑞藏贸易有限公司,以跨境电商模式进口货物。

    广州瑞藏贸易有限公司通过违法手段获取公民身份信息进行跨境电商购买,香港天一物流公司则将货物快递给婕斯公司的境内客户。此外,其向海关申报的沛泉果汁的价格是50元人民币一盒,实际销售给国内客户的价格是600多元人民币一盒,走私进口获利巨大。经鉴定,沛泉果汁也没有所谓宣传的抗氧化、抗衰老的保健功效,属于虚假宣传。

    据婕斯公司公布的数字显示,2018年全球销售额为14.6亿美元,其中中国市场销售额高达10亿美元。
