USFIA which supposedly stands for US Fine Investment Arts, was known as 美洲礦業／美洲矿业 in Chinese, which translates to American Mining. Chinese Commercial Yellow Pages (CCYP) shows that they are the same:

which means American Mining, even though USFIA
supposedly stands for "US Fine Investment Arts"
However, we do have a problem as there is already a 美洲礦業 in Shenzhen, China. As this is in China, the proper way to write it is 美洲矿业 (simplified Chinese).
And yes, they have a logo. This was from a talent wanted ad they posted earlier:

And this one is easy to verify via third party sources. Search for AA Mine Mexico brought up an official Mexican government listing of mining projects in Mexico with Foreign Capital:

Okay, sounds legitimate enough. Is there yet OTHER sources to prove this is the "real" 美洲矿业 , i.e America Mine Holding?
Sure, how about a LinkedIn profile for their Chairman of the Board?

NOT USFIA, but the REAL America Mine 美洲礦業
Previously we had explained that this "UCCA" used a Chinese name that is substantially similar to the Chinese Legislature. The Chinese name UCCA goes by is 中美政治协商促进会. The Chinese legislative body CPPCC is 中国人民政治协商会. They substituted 中国人民 (Chinese People) with
中美 (China America) and they added 促进 (promote) but the idea is UCCA wants to SOUND political and official, but their real name is:
|UCCA is actually US-CHINA CONSULTATION ASSOCIATION LIAISON/CONSULTING SERVICES.|
There are THREE WORDS missing from the abbreviation.
It's not an agency, merely a 'consultant', and you notice they left out "liaison / consulting services" out of their own initials.
And finally... USFIA itself is not an original name. In fact, if you search for USFIA online, you'll find that USFIA is "US Fashion Industry Association".
In other words, EVERY ONE of the names involved has problems.
USFIA is redefining someone else's initials, and has NOTHING to do with mining as suggested in its Chinese name.
The Chinese name of USFIA, 美洲矿业, was a clone of a real company in Shenzhen, China.
UCCA conveniently left out a few words off their initials to sound far more official than it is.
UCCA's Chinese name 中美政治协商促进会 appears to be a soundalike of a Chinese legislative body 中国人民政治协商会.
Still think USFIA is legitimate? Think again.
